cards, Christmas


Time is running out to get your Christmas cards made but here is a quick idea for you with a little extra WOW!

Grab some paper I have used the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper. There is not much time left for this paper so don’t miss out on it. I have shared it a lot and I know you will love it.

Layer this on to a card mat then on to your card.

Dress it up with a large sentiment and frame it. I have used the Framed Florets Dies. Add some texture with the Textured Elements and some soft ribbon.

Quick and Fancy.

Hope this helps you with your last minute Christmas creating.

I shared this card in my recent video with ‘5 Ways with the Fitting Florets’. If you haven’t caught that video just head back a few posts on my blog or head to my Youtube channel and you can view it.

I wanted to show how when you diecut your oval with the Framed Florets Dies. Not to waste them. You can create another card with them. I actually have a couple of ideas on that video.

This is the card.

The white background is embossed with the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. And – save on colouring the flower. You can easily snip it from the pretty Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper. Some of the dies from the Framed Florets Dies do cut some of the flower images but not this particular one.

Have you got any of the Fitting Florets Suite yet?

The paper and the Gold Swirls are only for a limited time. So you will want to grab those very soon while they are around. The Framed Florets Bundle will carry over to the Mini Catalogue coming in January.

You can see them in my store -> HERE. You can order directly there. Please use the Host Code: JCBE3B2U

Or contact me directly and I can help you out to order them for you.

Have a great day,
