A simple yet sophisticated Christmas card from Barbara using our Post box red 160gsm card. Barbara printed the sentiment and used a 1" ribbon and a snowflake charm from her stash (Most of us have a little stash of trinkets we have kept like this - what a great way to use them!)
A very cute little Father Christmas gift tag from Lisa - Papermill Direct Christmas red card and white supersmooth card, Michelle Renee Artisan Label Silhouette file, Pink Petticoat Santa digital stamp and sentiment, Letraset Promarkers, and Baker's
Barbara has paired our white hammered cardstock with a border of the red & green 160gsm card on offer. She has used a Spellbinders die for the embossing, and a 'twinchie' for the central focal point (a twinchie is a Two Inch little work of art - great
idea to make unique Christmas cards or Twinchie frames!)
Ruth has created this very classic and warm looking Christmas card - She has used our red and green 160gsm card along with Papermania "First Noel" paper and Tonic Studios Decorative Bow Rings Die set - we bet these will be very popular this
A little glittery reindeer from Sharon showing off our beautiful red Christmas card on offer - the contrasting cream card and lace ribbon is very effective
We love this funny ChrisMoose! Barbara has used Memory Box dies for the corners and frosty border, a Martha Stewart border punch, The 'Moose' has been stamped onto white embossed, coloured with Promarkers. The scarf has been decoupaged and finished off with 'Glamour Dust' Love the way Barbara has used the red and green card as a background to help bring out the central image.
We love these little lanterns from Sharon using her Silhouette Cameo - the red and green card at 160gsm lends itself perfectly to this intricate project. Imagine how pretty they will look lit up.
Paper Christmas Tree from Lisa! "Papermill Direct Forest Green paper, SVGCuts Christmas Tree cut file, CuddlyBuddly strung red beads, Zig Kuretake Wink of Stella Pen and Rhinestones from stash" - We think it looks great and can imagine a little row of them on a mantlepiece or window shelf. If you like this you will love this post we have with lots more great paper christmas trees!
Barbara's pretty Bauble card is really striking - would certainly stand out amongst all the shop bought cards - Created using Papermilldirect Forest Green and Postbox Red Christmas cardstock, Spellbinders classic circle die, with an Inkadinkadoo flourish stamp, embossed with silver EP from Oak House Studio, a Memory Box die to cut the leaf border, sentiment tags from Lili of the Valley stamped onto Papermill Kraft cardstock and all mounted onto white embossed card from the mill!
Sylvia has used our Forest green and postbox red 160gsm card and our ever popular Ivory linen textured card, stamped images embossed with silver pearl powder, and the holly has been cut out with a Silhouette papercutting machine.
To create this very luxurious looking Christmas card, Ruth has used Docrafts Papermania "First Noel" paper, Tonic Studios Loopy Lace border punch, Verdant Vines corner die and the greeting is from the Christmas Cracker die set.
Barbara has used pretty Holly & Ivy dies from Crafters Companion to make this lovely Christmas card, along with a sentiment stamp from Inkylicious - She has used our green and red offer card - the red border really makes the green holly and ivy
Sharon made this pretty Christmas tag using our red and green offer card, along with our white pearlised card for the snowflake. The pearl drops are created with liquid pearls.
Sylvia has made these pretty Christmas gift tags with red, white and green card from the mill - so simple and yet they will look beautiful adorning a Christmas present!
Our Red 240gsm Christmas card on offer with our white 'supersmooth' cardstock. The Stamp is from Lili of the Valley and the dies from Spellbinders and Crafters companion. Lots of Glamourdust and pearly gems makes this very Christmassy and perfect for a daughter, niece or grandaughter! We really like the 3d white paper trees!
