I have made three cards this time; two are extremely simply but they still build up the numbers.
7" square base card - Crafter's Companion Centura Pearl
(also used for the main dies )
red card - Rymans
Oakham Lattice die - John Next Door
Poinsettia Garland die - Sue Wilson
Sentiment die - Sue Wilson
Card # 2
Both cards made using toppers from a Hunkydory Little Christmas Book. These toppers are approximately 5" square so for speed I just used toning card and matted them onto
red 6" square base cards from Hobbycraft. I'll probably add some pearls to the corners too.
There are some lovely poems in here but I actually felt rather cheated. You are unable to view the images and poems because the books are sealed but on the front cover was a lovely image of a robin and matching poem so I bought the book based on that. I automatically assumed that was included in the book - WRONG!! I was a bit miffed and I certainly won't be buying anymore because although the Christmas ones are pretty good, there are also three or four New Year ones and I don't make New Year cards. Since each image is repeated four times it means I am unable to use about a dozen. Ah well, we live and learn. I need to find somebody who makes New Year cards so I can pass them on, so if that is you please shout out.
Anyway, I've waffled on long enough.
