Old olive Xmas combo’s

Almost the last of my Team swaps, Julia Leece created this mini Tri fold shutter card. Its amazing how much she packed into this tiny perfect creation.

EnFrancais Background Stamp, Vintage vogue swirling leaves, the wreath from Welcome Christmas, Some Sizzlit Lots of Tags Dies cuts with some sponging and ribbon. Just gorgeous! Thank you Julia. These cards are always a challenge as they need to be very accurately  measured and cut to give the best results but they are so much fun. The colours are the new Christmas duo Old Olive &  Cherry Cobbler with  Crumb Cake.

This wee gem, created  by Jackie Noble, came with an added bonus…. CHOCOLATE! Just what I needed. Jackie has used the Sizzix Mini milk carton die with Old Olive Cardstock and made a clever adjustment to the middle using the Scallop border Punch then added a strip of Window Sheet to reconnect both bits. All of the cardstock has been stamped and embossed using the Sassy Sparkles Wheel. The sentiments are from Tiny Tags and held in place using a clear rhinestone brad. The top was closed up with a Whisper White ribbon but that was misplaced  right after I accessed the chocolates. Opps… you get the gist though.

There is one more I have shown you yet but that’s because I want to CASE it. It’s so different and really inventive use of the die. Watch out for it next week.
