Hi, I'm Pam and thank you for visiting my blog. I have been making cards for over 10 years and am an independent demonstrator for Creative Expressions. I am lucky enough to teach on cruise ships and also get the chance to demo at The Big Stamping and Scrapbooking Show at Alexander Palace. I run workshops for a local craft shop and if anyone would like details of the them please e-mail me at stephen.smith870@ntlworld.com I love to scrapbook but my all time favourite thing is to get messy with ink!

Good Morning and a very Happy Thursday to you all!

A new month and a new set of goodies to play with!  This month we're back to Christmas designs and to kick things off I've used the Festive Collection-Christmas Joy Wreath as the main element.

So let's get started.....

Cut a square of Foundations Ruby Card and a smaller square of Coconut White Card.
Ink up the Elegant Poinsettias stamp with Vermillion Archival and stamp randomly onto the white card.

De-boss the card using the A4 Holly Lattice Embossing Folder.
Emboss the Ruby card with the same folder.  Matt and layer.

Die cut a matt from the Ruby card with the Portuguese Collection - Lisbon Dies and emboss with the Holly Folder.

Die cut the Festive Collection - Christmas Joy Wreath from Coconut White card.  Cut the outline leaves from the Ruby card.
Glue the letters onto the die cut matt with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.
Add to the card with 3d foam pads.
Add Always and Forever - Wedding Collection small gems to the holly die and also to the centres of the stamped flowers.

Cut a length of Black and White Tulle.  Lay them on top of each other and pleat fold them.  Tie a knot in the centre and fan out the ends.
Attach to the card with a glue dot.
Add a Dazzler to the centre with a glue dot to finish.

And there's the finished card!

It's a quick and easy one to make and would be great for a male or female recipient.  I hope you like it!  I've used an 8x8 card for the base.

Well, that's it for this week.  Many thanks for all the visits and kind comments.

I'll be back next week with another Christmas design.  In the meantime, I'll be teaching at Martells this Saturday and, for anyone coming, it involves glitter so be warned!!!

Until next time, have a happy, crafty week!
