Poinsettia Petals with Gold Embossing

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We are a few days away from the autumnal solstice so I don’t feel too bad about sharing my first Christmas themed card of the season. Poinsettias seem to be popular this year and when I saw the Poinsettia Petals Bundle in the 2020 August – December Mini I knew I was hooked as well.

I have chosen to go with Merry Merlot, Vanilla and Gold on my card and to complete the lusciousness tons of gold heat embossing!

Forever Greenery Three Block Pop-Up Card – Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today I have a really lovely fun fold – it is so impressive but surprisingly easy to make, I have made a video tutorial to help you make one as well.

This fun fold is quite popular but most of the examples I found used 12 x 12 card and needed a custom envelope, which here in the US would have required additional postage – so I footled around to design one that uses a sheet of 11 x 8 1/2 and will fit into the regular 5 3/4 x 4 3/8 envelope!

‘Tis the Season Birthday Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Here we go with another of my ‘scrap’ cards ~ made with some left over pieces of Tis the Season designer series paper from another project. I cannot bear to waste these pieces and if I set them aside for ‘later’ they just accumulate – so I have got into the habit of using them straightaway!

I have used Christmas themed products from the 2020 August – December mini catalog to create a birthday card, it would be perfect for anytime but especially if you need a December birthday card!
