Festive Greetings

Hi crafty friends, I hope you’ve all had a lovely Christmas so far. I’m loving having a relax after a very busy year. I’m just enjoying another cuppa in bed with madam Lottie snoring away next to me.

So, I forgot I still had some festive makes to share that were in the December issue of Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine.

These cards were made with papers designed by designer Matilda who works for the magazine.

I mixed them with XCut Mini Dies and wooden sentiments from docrafts.

Cute rounded corners, pink baker’s twine and white bells compliment the modern look of the papers.

I promise these are my final Christmas projects to share, I hope you like them.

Enjoy another relaxing day,

Fast Festive Make

Good morning crafty friends, I hope all is well. Christmas is fast approaching and I still have a ton of work to do before the big day, then I finally get two weeks off, yay!!

I have a quick and easy card to share with you today that’s perfect if you want to make your cards but time is short. All the products used to make it are from Craft Consortium.

I started by covering the front of a 5 x 7″ card blank with Silver Baubles Decoupage paper then adding Adhesive Pearl and Rhinestone Flowers from The Wedding Collection in the corners.

I covered a piece of white card with Blue Snowflakes Decoupage Paper and  die-cut a square through it. I drew a square on the background to match up with the square aperture then added a layer of vellum then three fussy cut baubles.

I wrapped Duck Satin Ribbon from The Wedding Collection under the aperture and  added a large bow with another Rhinestone Flower in the centre. I then attached the card to the card front using foam pads. A small sentiment and Adhesive Pearls from The Wedding Collection add the final finishing touch.

To see all of the Decoupage Papers and The Wedding Collection pop over to Craft Consortium.

Have a great day!

A Sweet Shaker

Hello crafty friends, I hope you’re all well. So sorry I’ve not been on here for a while, it’s been a very busy few weeks.

Today I have a cute shaker card to share with you that’s in the latest issue of Creativity magazine.

The main feature of this card is the XCut Flower Fairies Cut & Emboss Folder from docrafts.

I’ve cut the centre circle out and added acetate behind it to create the shaker element and added gorgeous pink glitter.

Tiny punched flowers with  pearl gems and an embossed sentiment complete the card.

You can find full instructions on how to make this card in Creativity issue 77, available now.

Have a great day,
