Two more for the Christmas box and a birthday card

This first one is another design by Judith Maslen called 'Christmas Crinolines'- pattern no: jm068-6.
I enjoyed this one even though my unfavourite moon tool was needed for the edging.  With all this practice Judith at least I think I am getting better and perhaps it will become a favourite.

A lovely design Judith - thank you.

The second card was made using a Woodware clear stamp.  I stamped the image on card and then traced it onto parchment using a white pencil.  After I  marked the stitch marks with black pen I then embossed the flower petals and berries and then added colour to the berries and Wink of Stella to the petals. The spaces were cut out with a two needle tool and all was backed with dark blue card.  The bow is by Sue Wilson.
The border is from  Pergamano Multi Grid No 21.

I think I am on track with the Christmas cards I want to make this year.  A few more to go but it is only October... just.

Before I go here is a birthday card made for my friend Pamela. It is her birthday today so I hope she has received it.   Happy Birthday wishes Pamela and here is your card to share.  I found this sweet little magic wand die and so wanted to use it. It seemed a perfect match with this image from Ooh La La.



  1. Three beautiful cards, I love the second one very unusual and lovely design, your birthday day is magical and lovely.

  2. I love the first card Carol although all your cards are stunning anyway. My birthday card is sitting on the windowsill - thank you so much. It really is 'magical' and the little diecut wand is really pretty - I'm sure you'll get lots of use from this die.

  3. Love them all, the ladies on the first one are gorgeous, but then so is the bauble. The fairy one is so pretty, one of my favourite images. Michelle x
