Tidings of Christmas pretty foldback card

I love this style of card – it is such a pretty way to show off gorgeous patterns – and it is a fun fold that everyone can make with just an extra score line (perfect for Christmas when you might want to make multiples of cards).

Tidings of Christmas – From our house to yours

I think this paper is one of the prettiest papers in the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper pack. I love that it is subtle and wintry without being ‘ in your face’ Christmas and the sentiment would be great as a non-religious card too and it just fits on the star too 🙂 Simple… Continue reading Tidings of Christmas – From our house to yours

Hydrangea Haven Ombre Flower Heads

I lovethe detail on this hydrangea head die….and by die cutting both plain card and stamped card you can get some subtley different looks, which when added to the embossed brickwork background remind me of the hydrangea’s at my childhood home.
