CHNC challenge 415


This is my design card for my CHNC challenge 415 -  please click on the link to find out what it's all about and I hope you'll be able to join in with your Christmas designs - anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the optional theme of 'use some gems or pearls'.

These are two very similar commissioned Christmas cards, one for the friend's sister and one for her brother, using Kanban supplies. Quite a few pearls were added, but they are small and quite hard to spot, but they really are there. The person who will be  sending the cards wanted to be able to put a normal stamp when sending rather than a large letter one, so that's why I used small pearls that didn't stick up too much.

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper December 2018 challenge


This is my design card for my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper December challenge. .If you make anything that includes some patterned paper you can link your entries and you might be the randomly chosen winner of lovely prize that I'm giving away. Please click on the challenge link to find out more and join in the fun.

This was a commissioned card for a friend to give to her daughter for her 30th birthday. I was asked to make a blue card and include a teddy bear, which is a Forever Friends Classic Decadence 3D sticker.

Papers are from DCWV The Blossoms & Butterflies stack, including the todo die cut label that the teddy bear sticker is mounted on, which was brushed with broken china distress ink. The offcut strip across the middle was also brushed with the distress ink. Sentiments, flowers and numeral are all from stash.


Not a good picture, but this shoes that I decorated the inside to match some of the paper from the front of the card:
