Good Morning everyone and welcome to a new week. I hope you are all keeping warm and those of you with that nasty cough and cold are on the mend.
So today i am sharing a set of double diamond fold cards i made for Christmas. These are really fiddly to make up, although i use a die to cut them out. I dug out all those old Christmas papers and sat die cutting for several evenings.
These first two use LOTV nitwit papers. Using the tattered lace diamond fold die, line it up and cut twice, then carefully using a bone folder manipulate all the score lines until it all comes together. Then i die cut the papers using the matting dies in the set.
For my embellishments i picked up on the christmas roses and holly in the paper and built up simlar toppers with flower, holly and pine dies. Pearls to finish.
This one is the opposite colours with buttons to finish. Also shows them standing up easily.
I computer printed the sentiment and die cut and added to the back of the card, plain paper added to the sides to write the message on.
Button Holly. Picking up on the holly and colours in the LOTV/Nitwit papers. I die cut the holly from pearl olive and soft gold cardstocks, they matched the paper colours pretty well. Buttons used as the holly berries.
Just showing the front.
Red & Gold Poinsettia. Spellbinder poinsettia die cut from ruby red and green cardstock, gently shaped and a pearl centre. All papers from Kaisercraft 'holy night' The papers have gold foiling which doesn't show up too well.
