Bauble Christmas Card


This is a Christmas card for my Mother and Father-in-law. My Mother-in-law always like cards to match her colour scheme. I have made this one using the Sue Wilson weaving die. I weaved one piece with silver mirror card and Centura turquoise card. I have die cut the baubles using a Spellbinders nesting set. I have attached the bauble aperture to the weaving and carefully cut around it. There is enough weaving on one die cut to be able to do the three baubles. The card is matt and layered with mirror card, turquoise card and then white embossed card. I embossed the white card with a Crafts Too embossing folder, I added ribbon from the top of the card to the bauble. I die cut the poinsettia using Marianne dies. I completed my card with flat backed gems on the poinsettia and flat backed pearls on the embossing.

Deer card


These cute deer are always very popular for little girls. They are one of my favourite dies,

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with tan and pink card, I rounded the corners of these layers with a punch. I have embossed white card and attached that to the top of my card. Using different widths of green card , I have die cut the one side with a Memory Box die to create layers of grass. Before putting the final layer on I have added a fence that I cut in brown using a Memory Box die. I die cut the tree using a Memory Box die and added it to my card sticking the bottom behind the top layer of grass. I die cut the deer using Marianne dies. I assembled the deer and then added them to my card tucking them between the layers of grass. I die cut the flowers using a Cheery Lynn die and attached the small flowers to the tree and the larger flowers amongst the grass. I completed with tiny flat backed pearls in the centre of the larger flowers.

Winter scene


This is my DT post for movingalongwiththetimes. Unfortunately it is a day late because I am experiencing internet problems.


I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with blue card and white embossed card. I embossed the white card using a Crafts Too embossing folder. I die cut the scalloped circles using Xcut nesting dies. I die cut the circle with a Go Kreate die and the fancy circle with a Tonic die. I cut the scene elements with Marianne dies. I added yellow card behind the windows of the buildings. I die cut the tags with Sue Wilsons dies and the sentiment with Tattered Lace dies. I completed my card with stars cut with a punch and Tonic Nuvo drops.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Gingerbread house Christmas card


I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with red card then red and white gingham card and white embossed card. I have die cut the gingerbread house using a Xcut die set. I have attached a crochet self adhesive ribbon where the gingham and embossed card meet. I then added gingerbread people that I cut with Cheery Lynn dies. I then added my gingerbread house.
