Patchwork Noel


A late post from me tonight to share another Christmas card.  I hardly made a Christmas card all year last year so this year I'm on a mission to make loads.  So far so good!  I made this one last week at craft club.  I actually would have got a lot more done if I didn't spend ages pondering over what I was going to buy from the Stampin' Up catalogue lol!  Tomorrow I'm going to take a few stamped images to colour and some knitting as a back up.

I feel I also have to apologise that it's yet another patchwork card but I just love making them and they're great for using up scraps.  This one actually uses some of the leftover scraps from the last Christmas card I posted.  I've raised the Noel die cut up with 3D foam tape to make it stand out a bit more.

Materials used:
Craft UK kraft cardstock
LOTV Classic Christmas papers
Spellbinders Square Swatches nesting dies
Sizzix Bigz Noel die
Woodware 3D foam tape
Button and twine from stash

That's it from me tonight, hope you're having a great week.

New Home Card

Good morning,

Hope you're having a great weekend!  Today I'm sharing a commissioned card I made before Christmas but didn't get a chance to blog with all the festive madness!  The brief was for a new home card with tartan and stags as the theme.  I remembered about these Docrafts Christmas papers and thought they would work well with my new First Edition dies.  I doodled some faux stitching around the 'patches' with a black pen.

Materials used:
Docrafts Papermania Christmas in the Country 12 x 12 papers & ribbon
Red and kraft cardstock
First Edition New Home Dies
Spellbinders Square Swatches Nesting Dies
X-cut Scalloped Heart Nesting Dies
Lettraset Fine Line pen
Button & twine from stash

That's all from me just now, I have a few things to do before I pick up my daughter from her performing arts class so must dash.

Thanks for stopping by, hugs,

Shona xx
