A very big Christmas card

Hello crafty friends! I hope you are having a good start to the weekend.

I’ve made a very long Christmas card that I struggled to get it all in the frame but here it is:

I’ve used lots of Uniquely creative stamps for this one:

Love you deerly stamp set

Christmas sentiments stamp set

Sloth pals stamp set

Polar pals stamp set

Eucalyptus forest die

I made the background using distress ink and ink blended the colours together. I then heat embossed white snowflakes and inked up the Eucalyptus forest die. After adhering the dies down I heat embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder.

I then stamped and coloured all the images and adhered them to the card. For a bit of extra fun I added some thread and beads that the sloths are holding from the trees.

This card is made using a whole piece of A4 card folded lengthways so that’s why there’s lots of cute images on the card.

Thanks for stopping by today have a lovely weekend!



Jungle animal card

Good morning! I have a sweet jungle animal card up on the papermilldirect blog today and it’s not a Christmas card..

I really love using animals on my cards and I have made this fun jungle card for you today.

  • A selection of animal stamps ( I used My favorite Things and Uniquely Creative)

For the card base I used a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm that I trimmed down to 4 1/8″ and scored at 5 7/8″. I then trimmed down another piece that is the same size as my card base.

Using Billiard Green Plain Card 210gsm, Emerald Green Plain Card 290gsm , Curacao Cocktail Double Sided Pearl Card 290gsm and Apple Green Card Plain 240gsm die cut some leaves so that they will fit all around the card. Adhere down Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.
