Kindness At Christmas.

Good morning friends, followers and visitors,

Sharing my DT card for Poppystamps blog ..

I wanted to incorporate this lovely "Kindness of People" stamp by memory box onto a Christmas card.

This is how I did this.

Card size 71/2"x 61/2"..

I cut the poppystamps "Emory Oval Frame" adhered to pale blue card, then  hand cut the shape.
Using my Fiskars easy stamp press , stamped the sentiment with versamark clear ink and silver embossing powder added a small amount of chunky white frantage, heat from underneath.. At Christmas is from "Christmas Background Die".
Foam tape on the back, then onto "Majestra Background Die".

I used Sheena Douglas "Snowfall" embossing folder.
Then these beautiful "Snowflake Ribbon"  finished with Open Studio "Stitched Bows" med size & pearl snowflakes.

Hope you think this works for Christmas, as I do..

Poinsettia Merry Christmas.

Good morning friends, followers and callers by.
Welcome to new followers, thank you for joining me.

Well messed about with this easel Christmas card for hours!!! still not happy with it. LOL.. nearly binned it.. all that sparkle stopped me..
I think it`s because it is plain card and light like pearlescent white..

I used double sided sticky sheet..I adhered one side to card.
I die cut memory box "Merry Christmas" 
Removed the sticky sheet paper and sprinkled on Cosmic Shimmer " Glacier Ice" the sparkle on this is amazing..looks so much nicer IRL.
The Christmas pops out, removed the paper and added red glitter to the sticky put back in the die cut.

I have cut one whole "Poinsettia Ribbon" adhered across the card top. each petals comes out this die, I used wet glue on each, sprinkled with Glacier ice and placed back in the die cut, cut one more flower did the same to each petal again.
