Good Morning Ladies,
I have a very productive day with Pat yesterday, we sat and chatted until after lunch and the world was put to rights. We then got busy crafting, I was surprised to discover that Pat had searched out and purchased a stamp set that I had seen on Pinterest or Google, Pat found it on EBay and won it! I was surprised that she even remembered which one it was as we like so many, between the three of us, we do share similar tastes in stamps, dies etc.
Sadly Sue couldn't join us today, so I am hoping she will get to pop over on Thursday, the bonus if that is, I get to days crafting with friends, we also need to plan our Christmas lunch out.
I have used the Stamp Set that Pat bought on today's card , Heartfelt Creations Festive Candlelight Stamp Set.
Festive Candlelight Stamp Set
Festive Christmas Background
To make today's card, I took a piece of cream card 10" x 6" and scored it at 2.5 inch in from each end (or 2.5 & 7.5 inch)
I Stamped the Poinsettia Border stamp twice on Cream card, embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold Embossing Powder, I did the same with the Festive Background, I then created a Matt of good Shimmer card for both front panels and the inside panel too, I added some foam tape to the two Border strips and placed them in the gold mat, I placed the inside background flat onto the gold mat, using no foam tape.
I stamped a couple more borders and embossed, I then cut out the flowers and decoupaged them onto the front panels, finishing with gold coloured pearls.
Now I have to say that I don't like the bow I created as the closure, with hindsight and for the next one I will add ribbon under the front panels to secure them and used that to secure the card closed.
I just thought it was something different to the usual style Christmas cards.
These two die cut work so well together, I can't wait to play with the candle stamp next.
Maria, thank you for your gorgeous Christmas card, it is super cute! Yours is our first Card! Xxx
Paul and I are off to Swindon Christmas shopping today, so wish us luck, I'm not as excited as I usually am I have to admit! Baa humbug!!!
Have a lovely day ladies,
Love and hugs
