New Christmas papers…

 

 

 

Hello lovely crafty friends, how are you all on this Monday morning?

We’re still having some beautiful weather in the UK so I hope you’ve been enjoying it wherever you are, it does seem a bit odd to be making Christmas cards with the sun shining outside but the DT have been busy making sneak peeks for you with all the new products

Another look at the new paper pads today, the launch is on Friday and we have new rubber stamps, clear stamps and 4 fabulous seasonal paper collections …    you’re gonna love them all!

This is a card made with one of the new pads called Festive Trimmings, a lovely set of traditional papers in red, white and green

Festive Trimmings

It doesn’t show up very well on the picture but I used a mask to emboss a snowflake background. The simple tree is just made from strips of contrasting papers and stuck on with foam pads to give a bit of dimension and then a star on the top

The sentiments are from one of our new sets which I stamped and then embossed with silver powder

A few diamantes to finish off and your done…   hope you like it!
