Christmas Card With MD COL1394 Flowers

Hello Bloggers,

A Christmas card again. Naturally :)

Aren't the Marianne Design COL1394 flowers just lovely!

This card ended up having surprisingly many layers. I had not expected that when I started :)

Anyways, lots of layers, glitter and gems of all kinds.

Punched Roses And Inches 2.0 (5-petal punch)

Hello Bloggers,

Punched Roses.Remember my INCHES black card? I made it for a challenge quite a while ago, but it kept haunting me from its box. I just could not live happily ever after, I needed to add more stuff to the card. :)

Eventually, I did, and the card turned into a Birthday card..

Still recognizable? :)

I added a strip of paper lace on the left, a sentiment, a couple of butterflies... They made me a lot happier about this card. :)

The lace strip was a little tricky, because normally the Joy!Crafts Vintage Doily Border Die 6002/0366 produces a strip with one lacy edge. Luckily I have an A4 machine and some extra A5 plates for it. They allow you to position the paper and the die in such a way, that the edge opposite to the lace remains uncut, and you can use the die again on the other side of the strip now to shape the sitting edge as lace.

I added a turquoise slightly off-set layer under the white lace to give it a little bit of a dimension. This under layer was cut with the same die but in a regular way as the stitch in the middle is hidden behind the white anyway.

Snow Globe Christmas Card

Hello Bloggers,

Another Christmas card today. No pretty patterned papers, just plain white and red. Embossed.

I like the knitted effect my new embossing folders produce, so I keep experimenting with how they can be used. On this card the white background is embossed with the Xcut 6 X 6" Embossing Folder - Cable Knit Pattern Xcu 515910 and the red layer under it - with the Marianne Design Embossing Folder Knitting DF3418. The latter is bigger than the size of the embossing folder, so I had to fiddle a bit to have the whole piece embossed evenly, but with this pattern it was rather easy.
