Lydia's Christmas cards and Gift Box

This is one of Lydia's mini Christmas cards for her friends. They were made in a hurry last night for her to bring to school today, so the photos were taken in a rush too.
She bought one of her friends a beautiful butterfly keyring and as it didn't come with any packaging, we made a little box rather than just wrapping it. The Christmas card is made with Bazzill kraft cardstock and the chipboard snowman on the card and box is cut out with the Cuttlebug.

I have finally finished all of the teacher's gifts and cards and will put the photos up later. I didn't have time to make my own Christmas cards this year, so for the first time in ages I had to go and buy some. Ah well, better that than not sending any at all!

Sugar Nellie - Hamish

It's my little nephew's birthday today so it's a change from making christmas cards :)

I've had this stamp for ages and I love it. The Harlequin paper is by Artic Frog and I embossed the red card with a circles cuttlebug folder (can't remember the name!) The number 5 is cut with the red tag sale die and the embossed score lines are done with the scorpal. The image is coloured with Koh-i-Noor pencils.

Thanks for looking :)

Christmas tree card

Another A5 card again, I never really make this size as I always thought it too big to fill but I think I'm getting used to it.

The Christmas tree is a Little Claire stamp which I stamped and cut out with the circle nestability die. I stamped it again on white card, coloured it with Koh-i-Noor pencils, cut it out and layered on top of the other tree with silicone glue. I curled the leaves/branches? under a bit before sticking down. Then using a quickie glue pen I put glue along the edges and sprinkled with iridescent glitter. A few gems were added to finish it off.

The sentiment is computer generated using impervious font.

Meryl if you happen to be looking at this, I hope it gets to you on time!! Posting it today...
