Itty Bitty Christmas with layers dies

Hi and welcome to my blog.

It’s a new month with a new hostess at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  The first challenge of the month is always a sketch – here’s my take on it…

I used the Christmas Layers die set by Stampin Up to cut snowflakes in silver card and adhered them to a piece of night of navy card, following the sketch.  I didn’t pick out the centre of the top snowflake – I thought it looked pretty as it was.

The sentiment was stamped in night of navy ink onto whisper white card using the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set, and then hand cut into a flag shape.

The pretty paper in the background is by the Lovely Studio.

Finally, I sprinkled a few adhesive rhinestones here and there.

I hope you’ve been inspired to join the challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown  – we’d love to see you there.

Enjoy your weekend

Kraft Christmas card with gilding flakes

Hello and welcome.

I loved making my card for this week’s colour challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown

I just had fun adding flitterglu in a random pattern over a piece of crumb cake card, which is the nearest I have to a kraft coloured card.

I then added gold gilding flakes and pressed gently with my fingers, before removing some of the excess flakes.

The focal image is a stitched star die cut, popped up on foam squares. I added a simple greeting and some gold sequins.

The gilding flakes pattern is different every time, so each card is unique – which I love.

I’m sharing my card with the Happy Little Stampers May challenge – “anything goes with dies”.

I hope you’ve been inspired and that you join us over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.

Enjoy your weekend
