Special Christmas Card

Sorry about the background on this photo. I've got a lovely present from Di which I really SHOULD be using, but haven't found a background for it yet. Promise I will try on the next batch.

Here's another try at an Easel Card. I quite like this one as it has a traditional look about it, and is still cutesy which I like. I try to make cards to match people's likes and I think I've got this one about right.

I used some backing papers I got from the Craft Fairy for this, it seemed to suit it quite well.


Here's what you need to make this card:
  • Scallop card from Craftwork Cards I believe, gift from Di (correct me if I'm wrong here Di!)

  • Tiny gems from eBay (these were a LOT smaller than described and a real fiddle to get on but have to be patient with them!) - I tend to leave a trail of them everywhere!

  • Snowman image from Particraft Limited, sentiment as well - both matted and layered on to red mirri card

  • Peel off greeting was put onto blue card and cut with my new "Bum Punch" as they called it in the shop!

  • Crystal stickle glue was put around the edge

  • Backing papers were a freebie from the Craft Fairy

  • Gold snowflakes were from the Tesco sets I got ages ago - got loadssssss left!

  • Snowflake paper was a freebie I got from a magazine

I put a verse on the back of the card, as Christmas Cards always need a lovely verse. To co-ordinate the look, I also added gold snowflakes around the edge of the verse, and again used my "Bum Punch" for the corners.

Sorry about the description but that's what they called it, and I can't for the life of me, remember the real name!
