Tidings of Christmas ……Stockings

I love the detail in these papers – the patterns are perfectly sized for card making and of course the co-ordinating dies have the pretty foliage fronds that you can see here.

Tidings of Christmas – From our house to yours

Sunday Scoring Merry Mice Landscape Pop Up Slider Card

So my Sunday Scoring series is for when you have a little more time and want to make a card that is a little different.  I have seen these in a portrait orientation, but that didn’t fit the image, so I changed it around, which has the added benefit of taking up less depth when… Continue reading Sunday Scoring Merry Mice Landscape Pop Up Slider Card
