Masculine Christmas Card

Hi there everyone…

It has been a busy old weekend, and I don’t think I have stopped for one minute all weekend.

Saturday I was through in Glasgow at Craft World .. and today, I spent the whole day in my shed crafting, creating samples, recording tutorials for youtube, editing photographs, writing up blog posts etc. etc…  I love a productive weekend 😉

So today I have a card that I really struggle with… man cards 🙂

That said, I think this one is not too bad, and relatively easy to make too!   It is a big 7″ x 7″ card, and perfect for that special person in your life at Christmas!

Christmas “Chocolate Box”

Hello there everyone,

It’s Tuesday and It is my turn over at the Indigoblu Blog to share another project …. I can hardly believe a week has passed already.. time certainly does fly when you are having fun :-)

I have used the snowflake lace background stamp and the gorgeous new Chocolate Box Megaflakes to create this versatile little christmas  ”Chocolate Box” gift holder, where you can slide the sides apart, fill with special chocolates and close right back up again.    The good thing about this project is you can adapt it for a variety of different holiday occasions, for example Halloween, Valentines Day, Easter etc…

Snowflake Lace 30.09.14 1

 

I have used the gorgeous new chocolate box megaflakes and applied these to textured card stock for the main body of the box, I also die cut a rosette die and applied the flake, it just looks so lush, and to top it all off I took a chunky button, applied flitterglu and covered this with flake too 🙂

Supplies used :-

Snowflake Lace 30.09.14 3

The large plastic snowflake was a cheap christmas decoration that I painted with Goldfinger metallic paint and I just love the effect,  In fact I would love to apply the new release metallic paints to more of these snowflakes and make several more in different colourways… perhaps I will do this for my step by step blog post next month if you would like to see how these are put together 😉

I hope you enjoyed this week’s project, as much as I did making it …

I hope you all have a super week!   Remember to check the Indigoblu blog for more posts later this week from the super talented Indigoblubelle’s

Take care
