Well – it’s never too early to start, as they say!
The gorgeous everyday enchantment designer series paper is still available until the end of July – just a few more short days.
It is so lush and so versatile and the colours are just perfect for any occasion – including Christmas!
When my friends came round the other night, we made 3 Christmas projects …
I love the colours on this card –
real red and lucky limeade go so well together …
I wrapped a length of organdy ribbon around the card, and tied in a neat bow. This ribbon is so pretty and is absolutely FREE with a £45 spend during July – don’t you love freebies?!
Then we made a square acetate card … (not so easy to photograph).
Love the snow flurry on the acetate – so pretty in real life and certainly had the wow factor.
You can see the snowflakes a little better on the photo below …
We added more of the very pretty ribbon, and a few of the tiniest adhesive pearls to the bauble …
… do you recognise the sentiments yet ?
The sentiments on both cards come from the jolly jingles jumbo wheel which I’ve cut up into separate stamps - there’s a free tutorial showing how to do this on my blog here.
To go with the cards, we made a matching pillow box and gift tag.
We used the triple treat flower to make the poinsettias - stamped, punched out and adhered together, with a little dimension added by curling the petals and leaves with a bone folder.
More of that pretty ribbon attached the gift tag to the pillow box. The ribbon is just the right size for tags, and ties in perfect tiny bows – cute!
We also learned how to make envelopes of any size using the simply scored scoreboard – no measurements to remember! Never be lost for an envelope for your projects again!
And here’s all 3 projects together in a different colourway…
I loved taking non-Christmas stamps and paper and turning them into festive fun!
