Tartan Bauble Christmas Card


I have made an 8x8in white easel card and matt and layered the top and the bottom with red tartan and red plain card. I added red satin ribbon where the two papers meet. I added green card across the bottom of the card to act as the stopper for the easel and added the satin ribbon across that. I die cut the baubles using Spellbinders dies. I embossed the bauble with a Creative Expressions embossing folder. I added narrow gold ribbon from the top of the card to the top of each bauble. I added a poinsettia that I cut with Tattered Lace dies to the top of each bauble. I die cut ovals using Presscut nesting dies. The white oval will include a personalised sentiment. I have added poinsettia to the bottom of the card. I have embellished my card with various flat backed pearls.

Tree Decoration


This is the final tree decoration for the set of three for my Mother-in-law's Christmas tree

I have covered my MDF bauble with Kanban patterned paper. I added the tiny pom poms around the edge. I die cut the snowflakes using a Cheery Lynn die in turquoise card. I then cut the poinsettia using a Tattered Lace die and the star spray using a Sue Wilson die. I completed my bauble with a flat backed pearl embellishment.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges:

Ice Hockey birthday card


I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with red then white card, on the white card I have printed a sentiment.  I have added white embossed card on the bottom of my card. I embossed using a Crafts Too embossing folder. I added satin ribbon where the embossed card meets the plain card. I printed an image of an ice hockey player and die cut it with a Xcut  scalloped circle die. I used the next size in  the nesting set to cut a red scalloped circle and attached the die cut image to that. I die cut a small circle and added the numbers that I cut with Tattered Lace dies. I die cut the skates using Joy die. I completed my card with flat backed embellishments.
