Christmas Part 393.................


Good morning lovely folk. Hope you are warm and well.

The weather here has been very indecisive this past week.........we've had all sorts. Lucky Nesta is off to Goa next week (without me, yet calls herself a friend!) I'm guessing it will be a lot warmer there. We're off for lunch today as its probably last chance to meet up before she jets off.

Now, today shows the last of the 3 gift wallets I made for a friend (aren't you glad I hadn't made 20 lol!) and this was made to hold money that was going to her sister and brother in law for Christmas, through the post (risky thing to do imho) so had to be flat.
If it wasn't going through the post, I would have added some pearlage to the flake areas on the word die.


Ingredients
White card
Platinum card
Offcuts of silver & holographic card
Double sided sticky sheet
Docrafts Snowflake embossing folder
Sue Wilson Let it Snow die
Marianne Snowflake dies
Silver glitter


Another Ducky bonus card today with another card I made using my 3ft high Hunkydory stash. I just try and zhuzh em up a bit.

Well, thhhhhhat's all folks. Enjoy your Friday and weekend.

  1. Hi Ang,
    what wonderful designs, and both so very different also.
    Love the gift wallet, and how you have put the snowflakes back into the die cuts with different card.
    Your second is a gem of mirri background, and a wonderful image too.
    I rarely get tempted by Hunkydory these days.
    Not to say there stuff isn't really great, but as you say you never seem to use it all up.
    It would be ideal if you were selling loads of your cards though.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  3. Hi Ang
    Loving the Christmas envelope another Sue Wilson die I see. Have just treated myself to a couple more of her dies and em folders to give me a boost.
    Do love the mirror background on the second card which reminds me I should have purchased more of that for my stock. Never mind I am sure there will be an excuse to ring my friend again soon with another order. She has come back from USA and Europe with lots of new goodies and ideas. Just wish her shop was this end of the state.
    Hugs

  12. good morning Ang on this sunny day so lets hope it continues. Clever use of the dies for your wallet and a bit of bling at Christmas fits the bill. Doing a workshop with Christine Emberson an altered art project so will be a bit out of my comfort zone but probably what I need at present. Have a nice lunch with Nesta and my best wishes for her holiday. Have a good weekend, love from Jackie

    Enjoy your lunch with Nesta.

  14. Hey Ang - the weather here in sunny Florida is warmer and sunny. But we still put on our heat early in the morning.
    Your snow card is stunning -- It's a good feeling to know that you will be ready for Christmas when it rolls around again!
