Snowman Gift Card Holders

Hi All!
As Christmas preparations start to hot up I thought I'd share some little gift card holders I made using the Crafter's Companion/Hunkydory Snowman Papercrafting kit.

They were quick and easy to make and open up to reveal a little pop up pocket where you can add a gift card or money. I used the Envelope Punch Board to create the notches so the flaps slot together.

The sentiment inside was stamped with one of the Bebunni Christmas stamps.

Anyway, hope you like them.
Best wishes and bye for now

One for the Boys

Morning Crafters!
Today I have a card to share which is perfect for the men in your life.

First, I used a topper from the Crafter's Companion Camden Town Cd. Next, I embossed a piece of white card with the Darice Diamond Plate folder. I then repeated this onto some silver mirri card and splodged on some red and blue alcohol ink to change the colour. I layered these pieces up to craete the design and finished off with a sentiment, punched stars and silver Card Candi.
Hope you like this card - it was really fun to make!
I would like to enter it into the 'A little Bit Crafty Challenge' which this month is 'Anything But Christmas'.
Best wishes

A Ray of Sunshine

Hi All!
Back today to share a bright and cheerful card made using Core'dinations cardstock and the Darice Floral Border embossing folder.

The more times you play with these folders, the more ideas you get. Here I have just embossed the design in different corners and on multiple sheets then layered them up to create a design. The stamp is a Crafter's Companion 'Sentimentals' stamp and the corner dies are from the Die'sire Ornamental Ovals set. Finally, I added black gems to finish. Hope you like it!

Bird on a Branch Embossing

Morning All! Don't forget to tune in to Create and Craft on Monday morning to see Fiona from Crafter's Companion demonstrating the Darice Embossing Folders.

Here is one example I made using the Bird on a Branch folder, embossed onto Centura Pearl and coloured with Distress Inks to make some last minute Christmas Cards. I even made a box to match.
Hope you like them. Back soon with some more embossing ideas.
Best wishes

The Spirit of Christmas

Afternoon All!
Back with a really quick post to share a card I made using one of the lovely Bebunni stamps from Crafter's Companion.

I coloured him with my Spectrum Noir pens and pencils and cut him out before mounting him in the negative space created when I cut out the Ornate Oval die. I decided to go with a pink and blue Christmassy colour scheme  for this one...and of course, a little festive glitter!

Christmas Pop Up

Afternoon All!
Are you starting to feel festive yet? Today I'd like to share a pop up card I made using the Vintage Christmas range from Crafter's Companion.

This is a lovely CD with lots of elements for you to fussy cut. I made this pop up so that it can fold flat in to DL sized envelope for a change, created a little scene with images from the toppers and added a lovely festive family sentiment to the front of the box.
I also added a panel to the back to write on and decorated it to match.
Hope you like this card. I'd like to enter it into the following challenges:
ABC Challenge - Xtra Special (an extra special family Xmas card)

Thanks for popping by.
