Slimline Ho Ho Ho

 I brought the Hope die from MFT because I saw a card had used the H and o to make a ho ho ho card but when I sat down to use it I couldn’t find it. So I made a slimline using either my Newton Nook or Lawn Fawn slimline dies can’t remember now whose I used. 

To stop it looking to boring I added some holly from a very old Martha Stewart punch and some red pearls.

I’m trying to keep things flat and bearing in my postage.

New Home

 I made a New Home card recently, the house is using Concord and 9th Christmas houses from last year. The tulips are from Lawn Fawn and the fence is Poppystamps and the clouds are Memory Box. The oval is from Simon Says Stamp and lightly blended some colour. I drew round the oval and cut round the outside of the line to give me a backing mat. Sentiment is Altenew is actually two sentiments and stamped at the same time so must remember to stamp separately to get them closer together.

Birthday Cake

 I needed a Birthday card  and finally decided on using this cake die from Sizzix. I’m not keen with with cream on white but in this case it helped the cake to stand out. I looked on Pinterest for ideas and loved the fact that someone made the top two tiers to tilt.

The flowers came with the set but I made the sentiment on the pc, I’m sure I had a relevant sentiment somewhere but could find it. The background is from Simon Says Stamp.   

I’ve had a count up of my Christmas cards it’s official I may need to buy cards this year.
