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!
