First play with some new dies


I have so much lovely new stuff to play with and so many ideas whirling round in my head for some different Christmas cards to the usual cute images. I am still loving my cute images of course but as I had another good craft fair on Saturday I am glad to have lots of ideas for non coloured cards as they are quicker and I need to build up my stock.

I decided to make an almost white on white card, just having a small amount of blue in the First Edition Silent Night backing paper. I was so pleased that the Memory Box deer trio cute from Centura pearl fit perfectly inside my floral oval diecut from white (yes it is white!) glitter card. I used the negative from a new Memory Box die for Christmas and Hapy is a new Britannia die which came with Christmas and Birthday dies so they will be very useful. I also used a MB snowflake die and added a couple of pearls.

Oooh this is gorgeous sweetie loving those dies........they are fab!! My CAS cards seem to take nearly as long as my foofy cards......how is that......think its maybe because CAS you have to plan first where as my foofy ones I just go with the flow & never ever plan them lol.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
