Festive and Fun

As much as I do love Christmas, it is hard to move in any room when Christmas takes over, especially when you’re a crafter.

I have made this fun exploding box card with added pop up pieces entwined. First the lid of the box, as a ‘pull’ tab which allows the adorable Gingerbread Woman to stand up, she can be found here, https://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/baked-with-love-gingerbread-sweetie-digital-craft-download/

Next when you take the lid off the box, the sides fall down and the exploding box shows its full design. Each layer has been mat and layered with card stock and papers from the lovely range, available here https://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/printable-papers-3-winnie-white-christmas-digi-downloads/

Then Winnie has been popped into the middle to appear standing which has been done using acetate, she can be found here, https://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/advent-calendar-winnie-angel-digital-stamp-download/

Finally I have added embellishments, such as the little tags and pictures on the sides, which are from, https://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/baked-with-love-design-sheets-digital-craft-paper-download/

I know it will have been a weird and hard Christmas this one, but I do hope all is well. xo

Gingerbread man Love

I adore Gingerbread, so when I saw this lovely Gingerbread man Digi Stamp I knew I had to use it.

I wanted to create a simple background so the stamp would take centre stage, so I cut strips of Red Glitter Card and glued them diagonally across the background and added some red and white twine with a bow and a sparkly button.

The stamp has been coloured in with alcohol markers and added onto the card with foam pads to add dimension.

Love the simple look of this Slimline card. 🙂 xo
