Belle & Boo Xmas Shaker Card

Hello and it's the weekend! Yay!!!!

Today, I'd like to share a basic shaker card I've made from the Trimcraft Belle & Boo Christmas range. It's another range that has a lot of co-ordinating elements.

Firstly, I made the shaker topper by cutting out and constructing the d├ęcoupage girl and fox. Then I cut out the frame, added acetate, double sided foam tape and some very pretty iridescent sequins (seen above).

Next, I matted and layered a sheet of paper and cut out a patterned strip from another sheet. I matted the strip on green felt and added a sentiment and buttons (see below). 

Finally, I added the topper and a few embellishments to complete the card as shown below. 

Thank you for looking and any comments are much appreciated.

Glad Tidings Twisted Easel Card


Today, I'd like to share a twisted easel card I made using the Trimcraft Glad Tidings pad. 

I loved the stag image in the papers so co-ordinated it with an image from the embellishment pack as the focal point. 

I added snowflakes, sequins, a doilie and a bow all from the same range (see below).

Finally, on the bottom I added a wooden snowflake to act as a stopper for the card to stand (see below).

Thank you for looking and any comments you may have.
