I love the new Kaisercraft range - Be Merry - with the trees and the holly. They were perfect for this card which was inspired by a card designed by Debbie Olsen. Where Debbie used stamps for the tress, I cut the trees out of the patterned paper. I really love the effect Debbie used with the felt snow cut with pinking shears.
I have been getting into iris folding lately. I always wanted to do it and thought - ooh that looks tricky - but once I worked out how to do it, it is much easier that you would think. And the wonderful world of the internet gives you access to loads of free templates. These two cards I made from templates from www.circleofcrafters.com. The new Alison Ellis range of christmas papers was perfect for the project.
Love my C. C. Designs stamps. Riley went to a friend's birthday party this weekend so made the card for Summer. Always wonder if a 5 year old is going to appreciate the time and effort I went to making a card for them hehe. Probably not.
Used beautiful Echo Park paper, the first time I have used it from my stash. Papertrey Ink sentiment.
I am a working mum with a gorgeous 11 year old boy, and a lover of making cards. I work for an employer association with a background in law. I teach card making classes at a small local papercraft store and my students always make me laugh!
