If I am honest I'm not sure what they call this card but I am going with centre flap card. Its A5 in size and the front flap opens up to support the card. I used the Sizzix Stocking die again and I added some holly from the Winter Foliage die. I also used the little tag that comes with the stocking. I die cut some more of the velvet paper for the trim, you could use felt or even puffy stuff. Love this colour combo, finished off with some little red gems for the berries.

Snowy card today using the Sizzix Winter Leaves die set combined with Creative Expressions Winter Tree dies. I embossed the back piece of card in an old embossing folder from Crafters Companion, then I blended some ink over it using Distress Tumbled Glass ink. The Winter trees were arranged long the middle and I die cut a circle to hold the Let It Snow sentiment, which was cut in Silver mirror card. I arranged some of the holly leaves that I cut from the Sizzix set around the bottom half. These where cut in a pale blue card. I finished off with some glitter gems for the berries to keep it a blue and white themed colour combo. I did add some glitter to the trees as well.

Another week over and I hope you are going to have time to fit in some crafting this weekend. My card today is an envelope card using the Sizzix Winter Leaves die set. You can pull the insert out where tab is to write your greeting. I used a mixture of shades of silver glitter card and silver and red mirror card . I used an old embossing folder for the white triangles and an even older punch for the tab. The "JOY " is from a Tim Holtz alphabet set. I finished off with a few red gems for berries.

Today's card uses a Sizzix holly die to create a half wreath. I die cut the holly leaves and blended Distress Oxide ink over each one. I drew around a circle die with a pencil so I had a guide to create the wreath. Before I started sticking down I blended some more ink inside and outside the pencil line. I used SU Crumb Cake cardstock for the mat so used same ink, but you could use any kraft colour ink in your stash. I then watered down some white acrylic paint and splattered it over the card using a paint brush. I added some red gems for the berries and finished off with a sentiment die cut. Its a large 7x5 tent style card.

I needed to make a sympathy card at the weekend. When I have set up all the Altenew layering stamps from a particular set I tend to stamp lots in different colours. It's just easier, you have gone to all the effort of matching it all up, so do lots of different colourways before you clean the stamps and put them away. I then keep them in a folder until I need them. I always do some in grey tones as I know they would be useful for sympathy cards. I love this stamp set its called Floral Art and the black leaves comes from Wallpaper Art. I used two of the grey inks for the flowers and the lightest one for blending in the background. The sentiment is from an old Paula Pascual set. I added a few Nuvo drops to finish.
