This is my very last Christmas card for this year.  I cut the snowflake with my Silhouette from plain white card and then glittered it.  The snowflake looks to have a pinky cast to it, but it doesn't look quite so pink really. The sentiment was computer generated and then cut out with a Martha Stewart punch.

Happy Birthday

It's so refreshing to make a floral card for a change.  I seem to have been making Christmas cards for weeks now.
For this card I used paper from my stash.  The floral one is Melissa Francis - I think.  I made the flower by running stitches, (by hand), on a length of lace and then pulling it to form a circle, then glued it to a paper flower, added the twill, button and bakers twine.  I popped some dainty little beads onto the twine.  The gorgeous twill and the bakers twine are from The Ribbon Girl  here...http://www.ribbongirl.co.uk/

Christmas Gift Box

Made this 9cm square box to put a little gift in. The photo isn't very good, it looked much better than this. I made quite a few of these in different Christmas designs.

A4 Christmas Card

This was a commissioned card. I was asked for an A4 card with a ponsettia and Christmas roses. This was the best I could come up with. Never made an A4 card before, so was a bit worried that it would turn out okay.  I used two sheets of 300gms card stock.  I then had to make a sort of binder for the spine of the card to hold the two A4 cards together.  I was surprised to find that it worked quite well.  The Martha Stewart punch went through the 300gms card with a bit of persuasion.  Thankfully, it didn't break!

Time for Tea

I made this little gift for a friend who loves her afternoon tea. The papes are from the Pink Petticoat Vintage Rose collection. Ribbon, and flower centre bead from my stash. The second photo shows the inside of the teabag holder, which holds two teabags.

Christmas Holly

I was trying some different things out this weekend. Eventually I decided on this card which has a flap on the front.  The flap will lift to reveal a message. Again, with this card, I used the Silent Night papers from Papermania.  The holly branch is from my stash.  The Glossy Accents used on the berries, and the trinket pin, can be purchased from The Ribbon Girl -  here
