A Christmas Gift Pouch (Bugaboo image)

Hi crafty friends,

I have made this cute little pouch for my mum for Christmas as she wanted a Bunnings gift card and although the card itself looks Christmassy it isn't very exciting to wrap up in paper. I just used a normal card size paper and folded over the top (about 1.5cm) and cut about 1.6cm off the other end so the lip would fit over nicely. I then used double sided tape along the 2 sides to seal it and make the envelope. From there, I decorated the front and will now hope she likes it hehe. The oh-so-cute image is from Bugaboo. The white flower is from Flourish with a Bling.

Christmas Girl & Reindeer Card (Flat Friends image)

Hi everyone,

I have a few cards to show you over the next couple of days but just in case you don't have time to come back and visit - I wish you a very Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays with your friends and family.

I was given this gorgeous image from Emma the owner of Flat Friends when she was closing her blog, the good news is her store is still open though so click on the name if you want to check it out. This is such a lovely image isn't it? I used a lot of my snowflake die cuts here and even my lamp post die which I really don't use enough.  I added some sparkly pearls for the snowflake centres (it's not a typo, that's how we spell centre in Australia hehe).

All Bundled Up card (Crafts & Me/Hannah Lynn image)

Hi everyone,

I made a uniquely shaped card today and added just a few embellishments hehe. I used a gorgeous freebie image from Crafts and Me, it is still available so you can click on their name and it will take you to the website to check out all their other beautiful images or to get this freebie click Crafts and Me for their blog. I printed it twice so I could 3D the penguins, I have a close up below.

I have also used a teal pearl flourish from Flourish with a Bling. I added a little bit of white texture paint so they were more "shabby". Everything at FWAB is half price this month (see below for more details or click on the name). These gorgeous papers are from a Bo Bunny range quite some time ago but I was lucky enough to find some more of it at a local craft show and snapped it up.
