Lords a Leaping

Hi Bloggers.

John Lockwood is continuing with his MDF One Day Special on Hochanda at 9am, 12noon, 4pm and 7pm. John has his 12 Days of Christmas Paper Pad on the show so I thought I'd share a quick card made with some of the papers.

I've teamed the papers up with Rich Red and Coconut White Card. I've added a couple of White Pearls Corners and some White 5mm Pearls.

I tied a bow using Red Solid Two Tone Ribbon and made a flower out of one of John's papers using Sue Wilson's Classic Poinsettia Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Imaginative use of the papers. Good to just use paper sometimes as it can look just as effective as lots of dies.

  6. Good morning Julia this is a fantastic card I love those papers. With that pad you could make a whole set of these that would look great at a craft fair. Have a great day today. Hugs Jackie
