Christmas come early!!!!!!!!

Afternoon everyone, I hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather this HOT Friday......
Well my card today is a Christmas card from Humphrey's Corner Christmas Decoupage range, this range is so lovely and easy to use as it's die-cut and such beautiful quality. Nothing you don't expect from Crafter's Companion though!!!!!

As you can see I have gone for an 8x8 size card, with traditional Christmas colours, green red & white.

I have made a red rose from linen card and sprayed it with sparkle and spray (silver).

Here is a close up of the decoupage, I have layered it using collall 3D glue gel and have used the tool to curve the image to look more real. The roses are just mini ones that I got from e-bay.

The stamped message is from lotv, it is from the sentiment Christmas stamp sheet. I have used glamour dust over the top to give it added sparkle.......
Other items used are card candi from
The papers used are from last years paper stacks
and the white card has been punched with a Martha Stewart punch.

I have entered this card into

I hope you like this card, take care and pop by again soon

Happy friday (again)

Well it's been a busy week, kids first full week back at school=homework...

But apart from that I have been making some wedding invitation samples

The Wedding colours is ... Pink

But apart from that there was no spec to keep to

I hope you like them (and the bride & groom do too)

I have tried to keep a clean and simple design to them as when batch making you
don't want to much fuss.

I have used a mixture of flat surfaces and embossed texture.

I have used a couple of stamped images, this one is a digi download
then coloured with spectrum noir.

I have also used different sizes and shapes, A6, square are the
most used ones for invitations

I have mixed cute with classic

I love using the ribbon and buckle, just simple but elegant.

I have also done a postcard type but can't add that one on as all the details
and addresses are on it.... The design above opens in to 3 sections and will be fastened
with white Velcro.

Well I hope you like the samples, now I'm off to have a play with my new stash

Yep the new Humphrey's Corner Christmas set.
