I have cut a pattern paper to measure 3 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches  and taped it to the card base. I taped some ribbon along the bottom of the card. The checked piece of pattern paper measures  4 x 2 1/2 inches and used some card stock for the base of this  cut it about 1/4 of an inch bigger and tape the two together. The gold glitter is 4 x 3/4 inch, cut a fish tail at one end them place on a card stock and fish tail this as well. all the christmas flowers etc are fussy cut from the pattern papers.

 Welcome to another month of Christmas using a fabulous sketch from Build your stash Holiday Cardmakers   Here is the sketch for March 2022 I have used an older Uniquely paper range called Holly Jolly Christmas to make this card. My cards measure 4 1/4 x 6 inches so the base paper is 4 x 5 3/4 inches and the strip along the bottom measures 4 x 1 1/4 that is cut from cardstock. The check layer measures 1 x 1 7/8 inches. That is layed flat onto the card base. The middle section (photo of the bird) is 3 x 3 7/8 and the layer of card underneath is 3 1/4 X 4 inches. This piece is raised on foam tape  Then I tied a small bow using some ribbon.  Glued it to the top of the circle sentiment then taped this to the bottom of the middle piece.  Added a small flower to the side then using a black gel pen went around the edge of the card base also the bird picture.

Hi and welcome everyone. It has been a while since I have posted on here, between my granddaughter,  my mum and life in general it has been hard to create. But I am back and ready as ever. Today I have created for the Off the Rails Scrapbooking Design team a 5x7 inch card using Distress Oxides. I have used spun sugar, tumbled glass and as I didn't have a yellow in the distress oxides I used squeezed lemonade and it worked well.  Sponge all the colours one by one over the front of your card base.  Then when you are ready spray with some water and daube with a paper towel. Then tape some gold spray over the top and let dry. I used some wooden leaves from my stash and daubed cracked pistachio over the top. Make sure you cover well When these are all dry place your flowers, leaves, glass dome button,  yellow and white twine. this I just tied in a bow and doubled over and glued down under the flowers. Also add the enamel dots aro
