1st Christmas


Just finished this card tonight and thought I'd share it with you. It's for my friend's baby girl and yes, you've guessed it, it will be her first Christmas (she's only eight weeks old - aaah!). It's taken me nearly three hours to make from start to finish because of all the die cutting and fiddly sticking together but I'm pleased with it.

Have used a pale pink and white Bazzill c.s. with some mirriboard for the background with the top most layer of pink c.s. being embossed with Cuttlebug snowflakes folder. The snowflakes and "1st" have been cut using my Cricut, George and Basic Shapes from white and a slightly darker shade of pink Bazzill cardstock. The bear is die cut from brown and black Bazzill cardstock and the face drawn by hand and his hat is a Quickutz elf hat with a little bit of glitter. The sentiment is part of a Merry Christmas stamp by Doodlebug and finally, I added a couple of little jewels to the snowflakes. I do like making baby cards especially little girl ones - must be 'cause I'm Mum to two boys!

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
