Snowflakes and Snowman

I'm breaking away from traditional red and green theme for Christmas cards. Blue is cool and so are snowflakes and snowman. I used Jeart 1200333 Snowflake and 1300014 Snowman dies shown below. The Oval Scallop Frame is die cuts from Sizzix large die. The hollies are from craft punch. I attached a small orange bead for the nose (maybe a carrot shaped nose will look better). Do check out this month's free paper pattern for print at for your Christmas cards projects.

Duckling, dragonfly and ladybug

It's fun to experience with cropping die shape cut outs to form a shape such as this duckling. I don't have Duck die shape so I have to make do with Sizzix balloon shapes for the duck's body, wing and beak(from the end of the balloon). I cut a circle for the duck's head and attach a small black brad for the eye. The dragonfly, ladybug and cattail die cuts are all from Sizzix.

Words cannot describe our gratitude to teachers for bringing the best out of our children intellectually and morally.

I have a request from friends to make cards with Bookmark Pencil and Book die shapes. These are from Jeart Bookmark 10000028-12/Double Do Pencil and Book die shapes. The printed paper is downloaded from papercraftinspirationsmagazine as mentioned in my earlier blog.

This makes a wonderful thank you card for school teachers. The alphabets T H A N K S are stamped and cut out.
