I thought that as we are officially now in Autumn we can start looking properly at Christmas cards.
shall be having 'Festive Friday', I am more than happy to share your Christmas cards too, as it will give even more inspiration to all of our viewers.
First up is the card that I started while crafting with Pat on Wednesday and finished yesterday.
I used the Sue Wilson 'Festive Collection' 'Snowflake Background' Die that Pat bought me for my birthday.
I cut some dark blue Foundation Card with the die and laid it over some white card covered with a double sided sticky sheet and sprinkled with some Iced Snow for a sparkly snowflake look, I used some Pinflair Glue gel to give a little lift and dimension to the card. I used the oval centre from Creative Expressions Austrian 'Innsbruck' die to give a larger centre to place the CE 'Let it Snow' die cut on to follow along the snowflake theme.
I decided to create an Easel card, so scored an A4 piece of card in half and then scored half way across the front from top to bottom, this gave the base of the easel, on to which I matted some white and another layer of the dark blue card,
I repeated this layers on the base, I then added the
new 'Snowflake Border' from Sue's Festive Collection to use as a stopper, using double sided foam tape, made stronger with Cosmic Shimmer Glue. I added some AB crystal adhesive gems to highlight the snowflakes and give extra sparkle.
I will add that Paul didn't put the top of the card correctly into place behind the stopper when he took the photo, so I will be having a 'word', I may need to dock his pay this week!!
I know its a little different colour wise for Christmas, but I thought I would experiment.
I am slowly getting back into this card making thing and quite enjoying it, so watch this space!!
I am not sure if I have enough Mixed Crafts for tomorrow but I will do my best. If you would like to send something please feel free, I don't mind the Grandchildren makes either, especially if it makes them smile.
Busy day and early night in our house today, we have to be up at 5.30am to take Becca and Josh to Luton Airport, we are then continuing on to my Mums for the day! (thinking positive thoughts, thinking positive thoughts)!!!!
