My Wonderful Followers - Thankyou :)

Saturday 19 November 2011


There is a new Progressive Challenge at Outlawz  and both Sandi and Anne have provided us with some lovely Traditional Christmas images for Round 1, thank you ladies. You have to make only one card to progress onto the next round


My 3rd card is using the Poinsetta image by Anne and I have coloured it in using Pro/Flexmarkers adding some Glossy Accents to the berries and leaf veins and gems to the poinsettia centre. I used a Nestabilities die to cut the image and the mat.

The patterned paper is by DCWV. I rimmed an offcut of cardstock with a punch and added some Papermania self adhesive gingham ribbon to the centre. The sentiment is a diecut from a Lets make Cards pack with small gems on it.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size – A6
Image – Poinsetta by Anne Fenton
Sentiment – Diecut from LMC pack
Paper – DCWV
Embellishments – small gems DCWV, Self adhesive ribbon Papermania,
Tools –Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Fiskars punch, glossy accents, Nestabilities
Techniques – Punching, Die cutting

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges 
(in Alphabetical Order):-

Hi Mandy. You have made some great Christmas cards. Lovely cheerful, traditional colours.
thank you for your advice about storing alcohol pens. It was really helpful. I shall change how I store mine as soon as I have cleared a suitable space. I must have them where I can get at them easily, as they are in almost constant use. I love the very pale flexmarkers so I shall follow the instructions on their site and see if it helps. Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. Kate x
