Nativity Christmas card



I have been making some Christmas cards. I haven't had any other occasions to make for so I thought it was an ideal opportunity to get some more Christmas cards done. I think this is one that will be suitable for a man

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with brown card and white embossed card. I embossed the white card with a Sue Wilson Beaded Fanfare embossing folder, I have die cut the elements with Signature Dies. I die cut the scalloped ovals with Go Kreate dies. The white oval will include a personalised sentiment closer to Christmas.

Wreath Christmas Card


This year is flying by and I have made a start on my Christmas cards but I haven't made as many as I hoped to. Today I decided to make a Christmas card to add to this years collection.

I have covered my 8x8in white card with red card, I then cut two scalloped circles with Xcut dies from a nesting set, one in white and one in red. I cut a plain white circle. I then cut a wreath with a Xcut die, I cut the wreath a few times and and layered them together with foam pads. I added the sentiment that I cut with a Tonic die and poinsettia that I cut with Tattered Lace dies. I completed my card with flat backed pearls and Tonic Nuvo drops.

Personalised Wedding Celebration Card



I have been asked to make this card for a couple who are having a party tonight to celebrate their wedding abroad

I have made an easel card. I have matt and layered the top and bottom with purple and white card, I die cut the valance, lattice, couple and flourish with Cheery Lynn dies. I cut all these elements in purple, I also die cut a scalloped heart in purple using a Sizzix die. I have also cut a lattice in white and the male from the couple in dark blue, I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a Sizzix scalloped heart. I assembled the card with PVA. I slightly offset the white lattice over the purple lattice. I attached the blue groom over the purple one. I attached the hearts with foam pads so they will act as a stopper for the top of the card. I completed my card with flat backed pearls

Bird parchment card


Finally back to crafting............................I had a wonderful week last week. I was cruising to Portugal, Spain and France. My 40th birthday present off my lovely husband. I have finally washed, dried, ironed and packed everything away so I can do some crafting!!


This is my card for my DT post at movingalongwiththetimes. The theme is Birds and Feathers.

I have used my Groovi plates for the designs on my parchment using white parchment paper and rainbow parchment paper. I have used a semi circle Pergamano piercing tool  to go around the rainbow circle, In each semi circle I have embossed a white dot and then cut a picot edge with Pergamano scissors. I still need practice with this. I coloured my image with Spectrum Noir pencils. This card is for a man but something completely different to what I usually send, I hope he likes it.

I matt and layered my card with blue card and white embossed card. I embossed the white card using a Crafts Too embossing folder. I added a die cut sentiment. Then completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops
