Started on Christmas yet???

Well, I have made my first Christmas card of the year!

I did it as part of the anything goes challenge over at In Love With Stamping - make a christmas card using pink! So, here it is :



Nice and quick using the rose red DSP, old olive and regal rose CS, and matching inks. I used the super simple masking technique for the ornaments.

If you would like more information on the masking technique used to make this card, or ordering the stamp set used - Hung up on the Holidays, please contact me!

folded flower

Here is one of my latest cards. I love making these medallion flowers. You punch a circle, fold in half, then open and fold in half again the opposite way. You then fold from the bottom crease line to the first edge crease line, then line that folded edge up with the center fold. Repeat on the other side of the circle, and you get a flower petal




Line up eight of these petals in a circle to get a giant flower medallion. Add one of the flat back pearls from the pretties kit, and add to a card. The flowers add so much, the card base can be quite simple. Stamped the thank-you greeting from Curvey Versus from Stampin'Up

Cheers,
Karin
