Good Morning everyone
Today is Christmas cards using a beautiful paper pad from a Polish company called 'paper heaven' pad called 'swiateczna girlanda' , i teamed them up with very old spellbinders bauble & poinsettia dies and added an exploding insert made using 12x12 Christmas paper pads from the works.
6x6" base card. I first die cut the bauble and memory box collage die (one with little holes) from the centre of the paper, i then adhered gold mirror card to the card base front and added the outer frame of the paper with foam tape, i then adhered the bauble back in place, glued in flat, allowing the mirror card to shine though the holes from the collage die. I then die cut a poinsettia and added to the centre of the bauble and die cut sentiment to finish.
For my exploding inserts i took a sheet of double sided 12x12" paper and folded using instructions from pinterest and glued into place. Computer printed sentiment die cut into a bauble and a plain white paper bauble added to write our greeting on.
Trying to photograph it was interesting - hence my little light trying to hold it open, it does pop right out to easily write the greeting.
Showing it side on with the insert.
This time instead of gold mirror card i used a rose gold glitter card that went well with the colours in the beautiful paper.
The same but different, gold glitter card behind the holey apertures. I added glossy accents to all the berries on the papers.
and the insert. Id not left enough room around the printed sentiment to die cut into a bauble this time, so i die cut it into an oval and matted onto a gold glitter bauble.
I used this tutorial for my insert from Beccys Place blog as it was easy to follow with clear written instructions but more importantly for me clear photo step by step. Actually its a lovely blog to take a look at when you have a minute - especially the a-z card folds page.
