Before I head into tonight's post I wanted to answer a question that was asked to me from yesterday's post, could I link the punch that I used to create the butterflies, this happens to be a Fiskars butterfly punch, that was a limited edition punch. I did at the time purchase this through Two Peas..I am not sure that it is still in stock. I hope this helps..and thank you to everyone for all your wonderful comments...
Okay, to start your weekend off, I thought that I would share another Christmas card with you all, this was another one that I made a set of 10 cards. A very basic design but one that could be made quite easily and very quickly and well lets face it, we certainly don't need to be stressed out at Christmas time...it is a time to enjoy with family and friends!
I wanted to use up some of my old products that have been sitting in what I call the hoard vault, you no those really yummy products that you cannot bear to cut into etc, well this paper I have had sitting in that vault, as sad as it was to cut into, it was time to do just that.
Starting out with Smokey Shadow card stock, trimming to form the card, setting aside to work on the rest of the card. Next, trimming white card stock slightly smaller then the card front, stamping a sentiment to one side of the card stock, run through the Cuttlebug embossing it with an embossing folder from the Birthday set 2 from Sizzix, corner rounding the edges of the white card stock and the Smokey Shadow card, adhering the white card stock to the front of the card. Taking the hoard vault patterned paper which is an old collection from My Minds Eye, the first Lush Collection and punching snowflakes out of the paper, adhering 3 snowflakes to the card with foam dimensionals and finally completing the card by adding rhinestones to each of the centres of the snowflakes.
Well, I hope that the cards that I am sharing with over the next few days gives you some inspiration to start cranking out those Christmas cards.
