Hi crafty friends, followers and visitors.. cold and frosty start here today! suns out but still cold..

This is my first Snowglobe Christmas card.. 

Made myself a lot of work for nothing on this design! 
I was going for a see through acetate globe.. BUT change my mind I prefer this winter scene on black ..would love your opinions! 

This is the back of the globe not much glitter in the acetate.

I cut two acetate circles with Spellbinders so I would have a  circle to fit the snowglobe. front one has been embossed with dots and white pen.
Using the die cut Snowglobe in white on a fold to make a top opener card.
Next I cut two Winter scene`s Trees coloured with distress Marker "Shabby Shutters"
I cut a spellbinder circle in black, adhered these scene`s ( this is where it would have been see through)  filled with glitter, then I placed in the two acetate circles ..I used foam tape to adhere together. 

Outer Globe cut two..inked in green ink, cut a thin circle in black  adhere as shown.
Merry Christmas cut in white and black to create a shadow when glued together.

Still playing around making flat Christmas cards..made two of these, lot quicker to do a second card after making  the first!

Finished card size 6"x 6" square. White card coloured with  Distress ink "Bundled Sage".

First time I have used this Winter Border from Poppystamps..available here

I have used Sue Wilson "Noble Double Pinpoint" to make two windows! using the smallest die in the set.. it cut a window 1.1/2" square.. just the right size for Memory Box.. Large Typewriter Uppercase Alphabet set.

Cut a card a bit bit larger than the top the bottom section for the windows and card edges.

Home For The Holidays Wreath.

Good morning friends, followers and visitors..
Trying to make Christmas cards which are flat for mailing!  boy this is hard for

I decided to make DL  (UK) size cards  one 4.1/4"x 8"  and one 4" x 8" as I purchased a pack of red envelopes from a craft show in DL size..

These two cards use the same dies from Poppystamps..  myself I like the blue one, white card coloured with Distress ink "Stormy Sky", my husband likes the red pearls on this white on white card. both flat for mailing.

Main card shape using Tattered lace "Essentials Tags" Second largest die.

Poppystamps Crystalline corner on this design, has not been cut on the card corner!  I shaded through with ink before removing the die. 
Coloured my white card with ink, then die cut "Home For The Holidays Wreath" also did this for  Bow & String die. Joy I stamped onto Stitched Circle Layers, then adhered the wreath die cut onto this.

I cut the corner die out of this card, then dry embossed in a embossing folder the top. Noel from "Noel & Snowflake" glued to Classic Ribbons. finished with red pearls and gems.

Good morning everyone... how is your weather today! brr ours is cold and rain,  very bad rain in the night as forecast.. hope you are all safe..

Love all white cards, this one is so easy to make! think it`s the first time I have used one set of dies #plus one rectangle to make a card..

Good morning friends, followers and visitors..

Sharing my Traditional coloured Christmas card today, over on  Poppystamps Blog

Very rare for me to make or use tags! but I love these Poppystamps "Stitched Main Street Tags" and the New "Snowflake Tag"  this die matches the  Main Street Tags dies. 

I have cut in card colours..Silver ..White.. Red..  Snowflake Tag..White & Burgundy I just used these pretty snowflakes. 

Bow I have used "Bow & String"  removed the string..  "Formal candles" white shadows with  burgundy card. 
Decorated with "Freida Leaf" and dried foliage I picked from a tree, few chocolate pearl drops & white Gesso.

My background for this card..I have used "Birch Press Designs" Dazzle Layers Backgrounds"  A-B.. Not just for Rectangles!! I removed these corners and made an Oval 3/4"  frame to fit.. you need 5" x 4" inside edge to cover this..

Hope this helps you  to what I mean. using Sue Wilsons dies  for the Oval.

I placed this finished Tag on an  angle, finished with CL441- Poinsettia Joy clear stamp from Poppystamps  onto small tag &  gems.
