Santa is on his way

Good morning,well the christmas cards are underway.

The card i would like to share with you today is an A5 card created using Sue wilson dies from creative expressions.
                                               Dies used:-

Sue wilson dies

Festive collection - Winter trees
Festive collection- Santa's sleigh
Festive colection- Deer family
Festive collection- Sentimental bauble
Noble dies - Classic Adorned Design

The card is an A5 size,i did some matt and layering with  foundations coconut white card stock & gold mirri card,i pierced around the edge with a tim holtz piercing ruler.

To create the scene within the noble die i punched out a circle and stuck down with a low tack adhesive and inked around with tim holtz distress ink Antique linen & a little tea dye just around the very edge of the card stock,then removed the circle punch to create the moon.

To add a little texture i added pva glue to the enbossed part of the winter trees and added cosmic shimmer iced snow.

When i cut the santa's sleigh and deer i cut one with gold mirri and one in coconut white and glued together slightly off set,then finished the card with the peace sentiment from the sentimental bauble

Thank you for taking a look,until next time.

Snowflakes are falling

Good afternoon, A card i made a few days ago for  samples for my local craft shop.
Dies used :-

  Sue wilson snowfkae mini striplet die
 Sue wilson snowflake dies                   
   Heartfelfelt creations sentiment stamp

The card is an 8"x8" I then mat and layered using a green none shedding glitter card and  pierced the edges of the top layer using a tim holtz piercing ruler. 

 I then cut the outer layer of the mini striplet die with the glitter card and  cut the decorative layer and outer layer in white card glued together with a tacky pva glue as glitter card can be tricky to stick down. 

I then cut out the snowflakes in white card and then rubbed over the surface with a gold wax and buffed off the excess.

I then finished off with a few decorative gems and stamped a sentiment . 

Thank you for visiting my blog today until next time take care.
