Christmas gift bag



I have used a bag which is part of a multipack I bought from The Range.

I have used patterned paper and a poinsettia from a Kanban set.

I covered the back and front of my bag with the patterned paper. Then I made the poinsettia up using the die cut flowers from the Kanban set, I then made a tag using Sue Wilson dies, I die cut it using turquoise card and then kraft card. I added the sentiment that I cut in red using Tattered Lace dies.

I attached that to my card using mounting foam. I have used a white and red strip of card with red satin ribbon for the stopper then added ovals cut with the same nesting set as before.

Another 50th birthday card


This is a card for my DT post over at http://craftyhazelnutspatternedpaper.blogspot.co.uk/

This is another card for my brother-in- law. My Mother-in-law has asked me to make a card for him. I thought I should think of another theme this time. 

He is an avid supporter of his local rugby team so I decided to work around that.

I have printed a club badge that I have found on the internet. I have used green and yellow because they are the team colours. I matt and layered my 8x8in white card with yellow then green card. I have used some green and white gingham card down the centre. I die cut the badge using a Tonic die from a nesting set and then cut the green and the yellow in the next sizes up in the nesting set. I die cut the numbers and cup with Marianne dies. I printed a personalised sentiment and die it with a Sweet Dixie die. I assembled these elements onto my card. I completed my card with some stars I that I cut with a punch.

I inked the edges of all my elements before assembling my tag. I completed my tag with embellishments from my stash
