I have made a scene card with a 8x8in card and put folded pieces on each side of the front to enable me to create depth. I attached layers to each of the folds on the sides. I Marianne die to cut the buildings and lamps in the background. I attached yellow acetate behind the windows, for the light to shine through. I cut the Santa in the sleigh and snowflakes with Cheery Lynn dies. I attached layers to each of the folds on the sides.

I used battery operated lights and taped them throughout my scene, the battery pack is attached to the back of the card.  Then I attached a piece of white card across the bottom of the front and acetate on the top. I die cut the lamps and post box using Brittania dies. I used a Memory Box die to cut the fence, Spellbinders die to cut the Christmas trees, Marianne die to cut the snowman and a Dovecraft die for the sentiment.

Poinsettia gift tag


A gift tag to match the colour scheme of the tree decorations. 

I have used a Die Sire Create a Card nesting die set. Because the die set is designed to make cards the one side doesn't cut but that is easy to solve I have just cut that side with a guillotine. I have used kraft card to cut the first layer and then parchment card for the next layer. I then die cut the poinsettia with a Marianne die and the sentiment with a Tonic Studios. I inked the edges of  all my elements before assembling my gift tag. I added some embellishments from my stash to complete my tag.

Stocking Christmas Card


This is my project for my DT post over at movingalongwiththetimes

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with red and then white card. On the top of the card I have used plain white card and on the bottom I have used embossed white, emboosed with a Crafts Too embossing folder. I added red satin ribbon through the centre. I die cut the stocking with a Sue Wilson die and paper pieced the elements. I cut the sentiment with a Crafts Too die. I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.

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

Poinsettia Christmas card


I have used a white 8x8in white card. I have covered it with paper from a Trimcraft pad. I have die cut the baubles using a Spellbinders nesting set in gold and white card. I die cut the poinsettia using Marianne dies, the holly flourish with a Cheery Lynn die, the mistletoe with a Xcut die and the sentiment with a Elizabeth Craft designs. I assembled these onto my card. I then added Tonic Nuvo Glitter Accents to the mistletoe and flat backed pearl embellishments to the poinsettia.

New Baby Boy Card


I have made an 8x8in white easel card. I have matt and layered the top and bottom of of the card with blue card and white embossed card. I embossed the white card using a Tattered Lace embossing folder.  Where the blue and white card meet I have attached self adhesive crochet ribbon.

I have die cut the baby vest, bib and duck using Sue Wilson dies. I assembled them before adding them to my card with foam pads. I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a Go Kreate scalloped oval die and mounted it onto a blue scalloped oval that I cut with the next size die in the nesting set. I added some flat backed pearls where the poppers would be on the vest.

I have die cut the the bib using a Marianne die, I wanted to add the baby's name onto the bib. To have the perfect size font I decided to use my Sue Wilson "BOYFRIEND" die and snipped the letters to separate them. I attached the bib to my card using foam pads so it would act as the stopper.

I printed the baby's full name and date of baby birth and used the scalloped oval nesting set again then added them to the bottom of my card.
