Snowflakes and crystals

I wanted to share this card I've made for the Paper Creator Christmas challenge, I used Meiflower's gorgeous round dazzlers and some AB gems to add to the centre's of my glittery snowflakes.

Thanks for popping in to take a look,
Enjoy your day,

A little idea!

Here's a card I made for a recent challenge over at The Paper Shelter, I added the swirls to the die cut circle, but felt that they needed something more, then I came up with the idea of following the curves of the swirls with Meiflower stick on gems, I think they look just the part.

Thanks for dropping in,

A little bit of Christmas

I don't know why but red and green gingham ribbon always make me think of Christmas, which is why I find myself using it a lot on my Christmas cards. Luckily Meiflower have quite a good selection of colours of gingham ribbon and a couple of widths too, so I can always find what I want.

Here's my card for the Teddy Bo challenge, using Meiflower's wide red gingham ribbon, I also used one of their round Dazzlers for the snowflake centre, they are soooo sparkly and perfect for Christmas cards because they look like icy crystals.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look,

A Couple of Christmas Cards

Here's a couple of cards I made last weekend, after somehow or other printing out the topper sheet twice, for a Christmas pop up box I was making. It seemed such a shame to waste the card and ink, so I grabbed some bits and pieces from my stash, along with ribbon, a ready made bow, pearl and a couple of jingle bells from Meiflower.

These came from the box flap toppers

and these would have been the pop-up elements of the box.

Thanks for popping by,
Hope you enjoy your Sunday,
Colette xx
