Hope you all had a smashing Christmas and Santa bought you lots of crafting goodies. I was very lucky and received some wonderful dies, and vouchers which of course I spent immediately! I also was given a beautiful hand made teddy, and my little laddie thought it was his, so now I have had to put it in a safe place in case he runs off with it!
He is a good boy though, but he does know he’s cute and very stubborn, luckily I have an even bigger stubborn streak, so he knows when he’s pushed his luck, but you still got to love him!
Well despite the obvious distractions, I have managed to craft today, but I have to keep it until the recipient has opened it, so I will have to share a Christmas card with you.
This is a first time project for me as I bought this die a while ago, but have only just had time to play around, but I think it has so much potential, and for all you got it is a reasonably priced die.
Craft Items Used:
- Lawn Fawn: Let It Snow, Stitched Hillside Borders,
- Creative Expressions: Deer Family Dies, Santa’s Sleigh, Holly Sprays,
- Spellbinders: Timeless Rectangles,
- Justrite Stamps: Mix ‘n’ Match Christmas Blessings
- Marianne: Craftables Dies Box Card
The box card die comes with all the accessories to make a complete scene, but I wanted a winter scene, so used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders in blue design card and vellum. Although you can’t see it in the photos, to make it shimmer, I added Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen.
The pictures don’t do it justice, but it looked like a real wintry scene, and the beauty of it is that it folds flat to post, and wasn’t very bulky at all.
Well that’s it for now, all that’s left is to wish you a Very Merry New Year and I look forward to sharing my makes and visiting you all in 2017.
