I just love these flowers made using the Big Shot and the Flower Daisies Die, they look so real when on the table, this 'close up' shows you what the back looks like. I attached the back using a circle scallop cut down with a glue dot on the end of a skewer inked in Old Olive ink.

I have used Real Red, Chocolate Chip, and Old Olive Card Stock with Tombo Glue and I also inked the edges of the petals just give some depth.

Some flowers were curled up and some down to give some movement. The middle was made from the circle in the same Die and one row of petals cut short.

I love the embossing highlighted with Old Olive. The label punch is so versatile I extended it to border the two edges. We used the Ornement punch to make the cut out.

The gold twine was wrapped around before sticking down the Card

Christmas Card made simple for volume

Card No 2

I designed this to make it easy to make a larger numbers, simple stamping and punching but still effective.

We embossed the Whisper White card and Night of Navy card topper with the poker dots embossing folder using the big shots to look like snow.

Using the small stamps from the Christmas Ornament Stamp set and the Boho Blossom punch. This was a great way to use up scraps of Whisper White to punch the snowflakes.

The silver elastic twine looks great and is fab value 22.8m for just £3.95. We also added Rhinestones to give it a sparkle.

It's nice to stamp the envelope and inside the card as well. What do you think?

Hope you like it! Dawn x
