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.

Thank you for stopping by today and any comments you care to leave..Pam xxx

Hi, Pam! Thanks for the fantastic design ideas using your DL scale. We call that a Business Size card because it fits in those size envelopes. Both are beautiful! Who would not enjoy receiving one? LOL I especially like the shape in your blue card, but the colors in the red? Does that mean I get two votes? LOL

Donna Ellis said...

PS I forgot to say that they are gorgeous - that's a given, right? LOL XOXO

Gosh, I love both of them! The blue wreath and tag shape and different elements are really pretty, but then look at all the different things on the red/white card that make it extra special -- the snow-embossed background, the white on white snowflake corner, the sentiment flag, the little heart on the bow. I keep going back and forth. Both so gorgeous!

Hi pam, I love them both, hard to pick a favourite, but perhaps the blue just edges it. My husband would have picked the red though. I bought some of those red envelopes at the show too - just used some of them up with the club last week. Love DL cards, and these are gorgeous.

Two dreamy cards that are so beautiful. I can't decide which one I like best they are both unique in their own way. I hear you about making cards mailable. I just mailed a 3-D Thanksgiving Day cards from Canada to my family in the United States, and it cost me triple the cost to mail them. Ugh!
