Merry Christmas!

Here's my final Christmas card for this year, using an adorable image from Sugar Nellie. I've die-cut a couple of snowflakes from glitter card and decorated them with Meiflower 2mm and 4mm stick on gems for a different look, I also added a small diamanté buckle to the bow, which was made using a pretty pale blue polka dot satin ribbon.

Thank you for dropping in and taking a look
and I would like to take this opportunity to wish you
A Very Merry Christmas
and a Happy and Healthy New Year.

A couple of quickies

Today I have a couple of cards made using a new Mega Bundle from Paper Creator, the cards are quick and easy to make, so ideal if you are in a rush, and once made up you can decorate them as you please. I added a few Meiflower items to mine, a ready made gingham bow, red stick on pearls, gold lurex ribbon and large jingle bells.

Lots of pearls!

I have two cards to show you today which I made in early September as samples for Meiflower.

For the first card I die cut lots of snowflakes from glitter card and dotted them randomly over the bottom two thirds of the card front, trimming off the overlap. I added blue gingham ribbon, tying two bows and overlapping one over the other, then added a die-cut circle of glitter card and a diamante snowflake embellishment. I also die-cut the sentiment from glitter card.

The second card is a very simple design, just an embossed background, (the card is a beautiful colour in real life, photo doesn't do it justice), wrapped with organza ribbon and then a die cut white poinsettia, all finished off with lots of pearls

Ribbons, pearls and diamanté snowflake are all available at Meiflower.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look,

Bauble dangle card

Here's an easel Christmas card I made, die-cutting a frame for the middle, then cutting out four baubles, creasing them down the middle and sticking them together back to back to make a 3D bauble, which dangles from the top of the frame when the card is open. The bauble is tied to the frame with red metallic cord, and a narrow satin ribbon bow has been attached over the hole. I also added green pearls to each corner of the frame and the front corners of the easel base, just to give a bit of interest, and found some lace in my stash that was ideal for threading ribbon through, as usual, ribbon, cord and pearls are all from Meiflower.

Thanks for popping in,
