Paper Cuts One Day Special today

Hi Bloggers.

Today's the day that I launch the new Paper Cuts One Day Special on Hochanda. It launches at 6pm, then there's another show at 8pm (not on Freeview but available on Sky, Freesat, online at and Facebook live). Shows continue at 7am (Netherlands and online at and Favebook live - worth tuning in as they're different demos and I speak English all the time as I know no Dutch), 9am, 1pm and 5pm.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Creative Expressions Nordic Tiles Embossing Folder. I matted onto Brunswick Green Card, then Rich Red Card and another piece of Coconut White Card.

I popped a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Coconut White Card and cut the plain circle die and the decorative outer die together from the Paper Cuts Jingle Bells Die Set.

I cut the Jingle Bells Die and the plain circle die out of Brunswick Green Card. I trimmed my Double Sided Adhesive circle die cut, just a little. This makes it easier when adding to the decorative die cut. I added CS Apple Red Glitterbitz to the exposed adhesive.

I cut just the holly leaf section of the Jingle Bells die again. I trimmed it and shaped it and added it to my main die cut.

I removed the backing sheet from my outer frame and added CS Sahara Gold Glitterbitz.

I cut one of the corner dies from the Paper Cuts Turtle Doves Die Set out of Brunswick Card 4 times and added them to my card. There is a holly corner in the Jingle Bells Die Set but, obviously the corners can be used on anything. All the frames are interchangeable too. It's a very versatile bundle.

I completed my card by adding some CS Apple Red Twinkles to the holly and the frame.

I have uploaded photos of the samples to the Gallery Section of this Blog and to my Julia Watts Crafts Facebook Page.
