Peace love & joy

Good morning, I sit here in my craft room and the sun has most defiitely got his hat on today yay lets hope it continues.

Today's card i would like to share with you is on the frosty side

Dies used:
   Tonic Boudoir square base die setTonic peace, joy & love sentiment  die setTonic scalloped circle layering dieMarianne poinsettia die

The card is an 7"x7" card blank,i added some gold glitter card behind the lattice square ,glitter card can be tricky to stick if your using a tape adhesive, I find a good tacky pva glue does the trick, i then cut out 7 large & 7 small poinsettia leaves shaped them with my fingers and again stuck together using a wet glue i then cut the centre of the poinsettia in gold glitter card i  cut a scalloped circle and added the peace joy & love sentiment to it and placed it in the middle the card ,I  finished with gold liq pearls from ranger.

Until next time enjoy crafting

Snowflake card

Hi welcome to simply cardz

Today i would like to share with you a chrismas card the card is an 8"x8" card blank i then placed a white mat and layer that i had ran through a tattered lace embossing folder stuck down with double sided tape  i then  cut the base layer of sue wilsons italian collection-Calabria die with a strong blue coloured glitter card, then  i cut the next top layer in white 3oogsm card stock  then  the same with the next 2 layers of card stock i used a tacky pva glue to glue the white top layer of card to the glitter card and left to dry for a short while

Glitter card can be a little tricky to glue so if wet glue doesnt work for you i would recommend pinflair glue gel or collall 3d glue gel is also very good and a glue i use myself. The top layer of the card i used a tim holtz distressed ink faded jeans and then added a stamped sentiment i then finished the card with ranger liq pearls white opal.
                Thank you for taking a look today and i hope y…
