Magic of Christmas part 2

First card tonight, very quick and easy using one of the die cut sentiments and a bow from the pad and a Mark Richards nailhead in the centre.
The second one uses 6 of the tags from the tag pad, 3 different designs 2 of each. I cut an aperture in the front of one of each design and added some snowflake punches, some die cuts and 3 bows on top. The aperture's were attached with foam pads and 2 rows of ribbon on the back to support them. To cover the ribbon I added some more tags on the back and those you could stamp and write your greeting on.

The Magic of Christmas from Craftwork Cards

A couple of weeks ago I demoed this years new Christmas kit from Craftwork Cards. There is also a tag and bow pad to co-ordinate. Over the next few days I will post some of the cards I made.

This card uses the larger bows from the pad but I snipped them in half to make a wreath. There are sentiment die cuts in the kit and to make them more of an embellishment I die cut a circle around the sentiment. That was mattered onto a larger die cut circle and then attached that to the remains of the original die cut. I then added some more layers of circles behind. I used some foam pads between. I finished off with a little bow from the pad. There is co-ordinating candi in the kit, I just added some in each corner. The wreath is then matted onto some brown, kraft and paper from the pad. The size of the card is 8" square.

The second card has an embossed square, its one of last years 6" Die-sire snowflake embossing folders. I die cut a circle in the centre and a smaller one in green to go behind. I picked the robin design paper from the pad and that was cut to go behind the circle. Finished off with a red bow from the pad and some Tim Holtz Distress glitter in the centres of the snowflakes and some ink around the edges. I trimmed down one of the sentiment die cuts, so it fitted better on the card.
back tomorrow with some more card samples, kits are available from The
Forget Me Knot Kraft Kabin Ashingdon.

Sympathy card

At a show recently I came across Honey Doo Crafts, they design their own stamps, I fell in love with so many of them but this one I had to take home. Lots of different ways it could be used but I knew I had a sympathy card to do so I kept it simple. I used an embossing folder to emboss a partial piece of the background cardstock. Simply stamped in Versafine ink and then I stamped the sentiment on a ribbon slider cut from a Spellbinder die, threaded some ribbon through and finished with  few pearls.

products used:

Stamps: Honey Doo Craft Delicious Dahlia, Clearly Besotted Sweet Little Sentiments
Dies: Spellbinders
Embossing Folders: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots
Ink: Versafine Black
Extras: Pearls and ribbon from stash
