Christmas Pillow Box with Holly Branch Decoration

Just as a change from card making I decided to make a pillow box as gift wrapping for a small gift. I used a 6 inch square sheet of paper from the christmas Wishes paper pad and the Pillow Box Punch Board. Once I had made the pillow box following the manufacturers instructions, I die cut two holly branches and added red 5mm self adhesive pearls for the berries. I hand cut a strip of off white card, inked the edges and added a peel off Christmas greeting.
I think it's a very cute package suitable for small items.

Nice to do something different, I hope you like it.

Handmade Christmas Card with Die Cut Bauble

I love these lacy filagree cutting dies and wanted to make a classic cream and gold card so decided to combine the two.
I used a square blank card and layered it with gold and cream card, I inked the edges of the cream card with gold ink to make them look a little softer. I die cut the lacy Christmas tree decoration from the same cream card and a circle the same size as the bauble  from the gold card, then adhered one on top of the other. A gold bow finished off the bauble and a greeting stamped in gold finished off the card.

Arched Window with Winter Scene Hand Made Christmas Card

This is a classic design using the arched window die cutter with a winter/Christmas view outside. I used snowfall acetate in the window to give the impression of falling snow and used two different Christmas tree die cutters for the large tree and the smaller ones in the distance. A line of glitter glue added a bit of sparkle to the snowy hills, which were made using a stamp from the Winter Trees stamp set.
The blue sky is inked with chalk ink in French Blue and the greeting and holly leaves around the window frame are stamped in white. This is another card where the basic design can be adapted to suit different times of the year, with different views from the window. I tried it with a blue window frame first of all but the red felt more festive in the end.

Handmade Christmas Card with Paper Circles

I love this idea, you could use it for any occasion as long as you have some co-ordinating papers and a circle die cutter.
The card blank is 14cm square and the circles are 3.5cm diameter. The construction of the card is very simple, I used a wooden snowflake from the Christmas Wooden Shapes, coated it with  Watermark ink and then heat embossed it with silver to decorate one of the circles. The Christmas Cheer For You greeting comes from the Hunkydory Woodland Christmas Set.
Snow Much Fun was stamped onto a circle using Merlot ink. All the circles are adhered using foam pads to lift them of the page a little.
