Seasons Greetings

Hi Bloggers.

Well, I didn't get much done yesterday! My pace was slow to say the least! Thank you to everyone who ordered from my website over the bank holiday weekend. They're all parcelled up and will be in the post today.

Here's today's card -

This is made using the Spellbinders Triple Flip Card Die. I've made lots of everyday cards with this die but this is the first one made as a Christmas Card.

So, the die does all the work, cutting on 3 sides on the inner 2 sections and scoring on the 4th side of those layers. I used Coconut White Card.

I've stamped using Olive Archival and John Lockwood's Holly Wreath Stamp Set. I added some Phill Martin Vintage Berry PVA.

I matted the card onto Brunswick Green Card.

I stamped another sentiment from John Lockwood's Poinsettia Elements Stamp Set using Olive Archival and cut it out using Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A. I popped it below the central flip section.

Easy peasy!

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

Thanks for stopping by.

  13. Hi Julia

    This card is quite different & having not heard of this cutting die I shall go & look it up as different is good & I agree this sort of card would be good for batch making especially for the ones you need to send quite a way in the post.

    Thank you for sharing with us Julia & good to know that you took a slow pace yesterday...after the decorating over the weekend I virtually came to a full stop especially when Phil was on Hochanda...sincerely hope that we are going to see you on Hochanda before too long Julia.

    Ps Hope your workshop went okay at CE Kettering wanted to attend but mr B working so hopefully I shall try & catch your next one there.

    Take care to yourself & one & all

  21. Hello Julia.

    I have seen you use this die before and I really like the way you have used the stamps. Which made me think that this would be a great style to use Phill's Montage stamps. Thanks for the idea.

    Well at least you got your orders done, house work can wait, it will always be there, lol.

    Loved John's photo of you with the washing up bowl, there is always someone to take a photo when you could do without it, lol.

    Best wishes

  22. Hi Julia, another stunning card, love the design and the traditional colours!
    Hugs Donna xx

  23. I love using this die Julia and your card is absolutely beautiful. It was our wedding anniversary yesterday and I used the triple flip die for hubby's card, I placed a wedding photo under the top layer and a verse on the one below. He loved it. Pat x
