Elegant Happy Christmas Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today is Christmas Eve – as my great- niece would be telling her Daddy today ‘ one more sleep until Father Christmas gets here’. I am spending my day with final preparation for tomorrow’s lunch and then settling down in front of the fire to watch some Christmas movies!

They say that less is more ~ not entirely sure I agree with that when it comes to card making but today I used a ready made card base from the Gold Cards and Envelopes Pack. It is Very Vanilla and has gold foil decoration on it, so that was my color choices decided, then a little dash of red to finish off! And, you know it was surprisingly quick to create all of the 10 cards that were in the pack!

Thanksgiving Slimline Easel Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Happy Thanksgiving to all my wonderful readers. As an ex-pat Brit now living in North Texas, Thanksgiving is not a holiday that I was familiar with until we moved here just over 19 years ago. While it is a day for food and football it is also one for quiet reflection, thinking of the things that we are thankful for and I shall be doing just that!

Today’s card in another of the popular slimline fold cards, this time an easel fold card using some of the pretty autumn themed products in the 2020 August – December mini catalog……………. and showing you how it all goes together with a video tutorial.

Thanksgiving Card – Funfold with Leaves and Pumpkins

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We are in Thanksgiving week and while this year has not been the best there are things to be grateful for, starting with the health and wellbeing of family and friends, followed by having a roof over our heads and food on the table.

Today’s card features the Gather Together Stamp Set with the co-ordinating Gathered Leaves Dies. I love that stem of corn in the set as well as the cute little pumpkins and I used both on this card.

Decorated Hand Sanitizer Gift Box – Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I love little gifts, both giving and receiving them is a thrill! – just a little something wrapped up prettily, given unexpectedly or placed on a holiday or celebration table – just lovely.

When Stampin’ UP! 2020 Aug/December Mini Catalog came out earlier this year it had the Little Treat Dies, perfect for creating and wrapping a little gift. I experimented and found I could get a mini hand sanitizer in one or a couple of those famous chocolate squares! I am sure there are lots of other goodies out there that would fit in as well.

While I have used a birthday greeting, change it out to create a thank you, thinking of you or best wishes card – it will work for any of these!

Thanksgiving Z-Fold Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and my card today would be perfect to send to friends and family members to celebrate this year. We might not be able to get together in person as we have in the past so a beautiful card will show them they are in our thoughts.

I have used the Celebration Tidings Stamp Set along with my very favorite Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pen, to color the pumpkins, leaves and berries.
