What a miserable, wet and windy day - just perfect ! Perfect for getting all Christmassy and glittery !
So, surrounded by lots and lots of Simon goodies, a new toy and some new yummy papers, I got making !
I just love these Authentique papers, they are gorgeous shades of blue and "frosty" looking.
These little Christmas trees are a great size for small cards. I made this card 4" x 4".
Again I used the curved A2 edge die for the snowdrifts which I have done before. I machine stitched them at the bottom.
Onto my new toy !
I have been umming and arrring for ages about the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board as like most crafters, I have every scoring board ever produced and they are all stacked up and very rarely see the light of day ! After watching some Youtube videos I decided to go for it and I must say, I'm hooked ! It's brilliant ! I have so many 12x12 papers that I can't use because they are now discontinued and its such a waste but now I have found a use for them - pretty envelopes for my cards.
If you make even smaller cards, you can also use up all those 6x6 papers you have lying around !
I made this envelope from some scrap white card I had in my scrap box and decorated it using the Simon Says Stamp stamps and snowflakes from Lawn Fawn.
I also have a pot of envelope gum from Crafters Companion which I can also highly recommend as it bonds the flaps brilliantly. One thing I am yet to try is licking it ! I'll keep you posted on that one ! ROFL !
Well, that's me for today. Hope you have a great crafty day !
