Christmas cards

I just wanted to share a few of the Christmas cards I made, The first one I think is my favourite, double embossed Cherry Cobbler water coloured image from "Greeting Card Kids", such a cute set. The next couple are a case of Stampin pretty, I just changed to a butterfly on one & emboss stamped in Pewter -just gorgeous IRL. 

I saw this card on a display board at the Penrith show in November & loved it so much I had to CASE.

this one came together very quickly with all layers & embellishments left over that I wanted to use.

Our Christmas tree.Have a wonderful Christmas & a blessed 2013

Lip gloss teachers/ friends gifts

 I found in Myer Benefit 6 pack of mini lip gloss's for $49 & thought I would come up with individual packaged gifts. These were the first pack of 6 I bought & made for Teya's dance teachers but Matt spotted them & thought he would like them for his managers wives so they were gifted to them at a work dinner we had. I went & bought another pack & had less time so came up with the "Scentsational Season" decorated ones below which did go to Teya's dance teachers, I liked how quick & cute these ones turned out so that led to the Lindt Chocolate gift cards in the previous post where you can follow the tutorial. The insert for the lip gloss is actually from the pack that I cut down to fit & I punched a 3/4" hole which fitted the lid of the lip gloss nicely. The bottom ones are sunblock Ella Bache bought from DJ's in a 3 pack for $29 & those being a little taller I packaged using the Petal Card Double Punch & the window sheet tube that measures 4 1/4" x 4 1/2" scored at 1", 2", 3" & 4", sticky strip to assemble & only on the bottom petal card punch. The top holds in place by wrapping a strip of dsp or CS & the ribbon runs through the inside, looped to create a hanger & knotted at the top & bottom so you can open & close the lid without tearing the box. I hope this helps if you like this idea & want to make some yourself.

Scentsational Season Lindt Teddy card Tutorial

Score a 3" x 9 3/4" strip at 3/4", 1 1/2", 2 1/4", 3", 6" & 6 3/4". 

 1 1/4" circle punch on the 1 1/2" score line.
Apply Sticky Strip as shown

Fold in all score marks & adhere to the back portion.

Stamp greeting from "More Merry Messages" to top inside 3" panel. Run a piece of Gumball Green CS that measures 2 3/4" x 2" through the Bigshot in Petals-a-Plenty Folder & adhere to the inside for added interest (optional)

Adhere the large Scallop from the Scallop Square Due in real Red to the front.

Layer a piece on top that measures 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" of Whisper White that has also been embossed.
