Christmas Wrapping

Well for this weeks Polkadoodles challenge, it was a card with a window. I instantly thought of a card with a window on the front of the card blank, so it looks like you are looking into a scene.

I have used red and kraft card to create my card blank and window on the front. For my window scene I have used the wonderful Santas workshop and I have printed it out several times and layered up parts to make more of a 3d scene. The gingerbread popping out the box, may be the cutest thing I have ever seen.

For the background behind the Santas workshop I have used the snowflake design from Winnie White Christmas Papers. Finally I have added a simple sentiment to finish off the card.

Hope you like it.

Autumn has arrived

Autumn or Fall is my favourite time of year. I am not keen on Summer at all. So as soon as it’s acceptable to wear knitted jumpers and scarves carrying a mug of Gingerbread Hot Chocolate and picking up pinecones and conkers I am in my happy place, it also means I can start crafting more and more.

Before I start my Christmas crafting full time I like to do some Autumn crafting and whip up some cosy cards. Since the theme this week was Thanks, I knew I wanted to include some lovely rusts and brown colours to represent Autumn on my Thanks card.

I have made a card blank with an acetate front and added some fussy cut pieces from the Autumn Digi stamps and added them on to the acetate, some with glue and some with foam pads to give dimension. It gives the look of them falling.

I have also added some gems and my ‘Thanks’ sentiment onto the front with a black border.

The insert I have used in the background of my card is from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles.

I hope you’re all ok, and crafting happily away these darker nights 🙂
