So Many Reasons To Be Happy

Hello. I have been creating using a card kit from Spellbinders – outside of my comfort zone – but loving the fancy fold:

I understand this is called a ‘seagull’ fold. I came across this when viewing one of my DT friends and her recent post. which linked to a video on how to create it. Her post is here.

More pictures:

I chose to use some Spellbinders patterned papers as the background pieces, and some die cuts from one of their card kits. I don’t usually use a lot of these die cuts, but I seem to have quite a collection going now – so I took the opportunity to create this little jumping bunny scene. I feel the bunny is protecting itself from the sun – though we aren’t having much at the moment here in the UK. I understand it is coming soon though…….

I added some enamel dots to the centre of the flowers in the front panel, then decided that those polka dots on the patterned paper deserved some too – once I start I can’t seem to stop adding them. The enamel dots are from Concord & 9th and from a previous online crafty event.

Christmas Pine Cones

We have a new challenge starting at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge. The theme is always anything goes as long as it’s Christmas or festive. Here is my card:

Using one of my pre-made ink smooshed cards, I die cut the pine cones and branch. The base is a 3D embossing folder – leaving it white to be able to see the texture, but also to highlight the pine cones and branches.

I also used some enamel dots I had laying around – no idea where they came from. I think they were part of a kit or an online order as a freebie – but I thought the colours matched the card perfeclty.

Quite simple in it’s design, but lots of texture.

I hope you can come and join us with your Christmas makes. xx
