Hi Everyone !!!!

Hope you’ve had a Very Merry Christmas !!!!!!!

This was the last Christmas card I made this year, it’s a folded star card, I found this idea when I was blog hopping and can’t remember where I saw it ( SORRY )

This is it when it is opened, the picture is a bit wonky though……

…. the Christmas tree and the sentiments are stamps by Stampin Up, the sentiments have been punched out using Stampin Up punches too. The poinsettia are die cut with a Marianne die and the papers, I think, are basic gray double sided.

Hi Everyone

Well the opening of Daisy’s Jewels and Crafts was a great success, a BIG THANKYOU  !!!!!! to everyone who came and supported them. It was lovely to see so many familiar faces 😀

On to my card….I made this side step card for a friends Mum’s 90th birthday, WOW what an age.!!!!!!!

I’ve used a Stampin Up embossing folder called elegant bouquet for the left hand panel ( sorry doesn’t show up very well in the piccie ) added some pearls and a vellum butterfly I bought on my recent trip to Florida. The round layers and border were cut with spellbinders nesties and the word “Mum was cut using a sissix alphabet called Retro Metro. the patterned paper panel has been edged with a Stampin up scalloped border punch.
