Stamping I started the card by stamping some flamingos on to some Neenah cardstock. I coloured them using my Copic Markers, I did the same with the palm trees, cut them all out and put them to one side. Background Next I worked … Read More

Fairy Lights Christmas Card By Sarah

If you’re still undecided about Christmas card designs for this year, here’s one last one from me to help you choose. Process Cut a panel of black card to the width of your fairy lights stamp, and a height to leave an even border all the way round when you attach it to your card blank later.

Blue Foiled Dahlia Card by Laura

|

Welcome, my crafty friends! It’s Laura here with you today, and I’ve created a holiday card using Nuvo Gilding Flakes and the gorgeous Concord & 9th Dahlia Turnabout Stamp. While this stamp isn’t considered a “traditional” Christmas stamp, by changing the color and adding a little pizazz, that statement dahlia almost looks like a holiday wreath!
