Hello & Welcome
Thank you so much for visiting my new blog and hitting the follow button, I do appreciate it

I'm posting two cards today, and as the title states, Festive Friday 7 and yesterday's card give-away.  This will then bring me up to date following on from my original blog

I also have 2 videos on my Poppyfield Card Crafts YouTube Channel, one is from several months ago and I think it was the card I designed as my contribution to the Moving Along With The Times Blog Design Team - MAWTT'Celebrate You Special Day' the second one is a talk through for the two cards I designed using several elements from the free gift with Papercraft Essentials Issue 150 


  • The base card is a white 16.5cm square (7")  and I stamped the sentiment, on the side of the card, with a Versafine Ink Pad in Onyx Black. Once stamped I sprinkled a clear embossing powder over it, tapped off the excess and heat embossed it.  Doing this to your stamped sentiment/image gives it a lovely sheen and a little dimension
  • I embossed a piece of blue textured paper with a new embossing folder by John Next Door.I cut a piece of white card to 13cm square (5.5") and embossed it with another of John's new embossing folders.  Using a craft knife I cut away the centre panel and adhered the embossed frame onto the blue paper, mounting foam was added to the back and adhered it to a larger white panel that I also also had mounting foam added to the back of it

  • I covered a piece of white card stock with a piece of double sided adhesive and die cut and embossed 2 Christmas trees.  Then the backing from the adhesive sheet was removed and Glitter Jewels sprinkled over both trees

  • I added wet glue to the back of the larger tree and added it to my card, tucking a little of the trunk behind the frame.  For the smaller tree I added mounting foam to the back, adhered it to the card and also tucked the trunk behind the frame

  • Confetti Frame Embossing Folder ~ JND JNDEF3005
  • Merry Christmas Sentiment/Winter Trees ~ JND JND0004
  • Christmas Tree Dies ~ Tonic


  • I started with a white, 20cm (8") square card base and cut a smaller panel of black card and a smaller panel of white card, glued the two panels together and adhered them to my base card.  Then using my Hougie Board I scored lines both down the right side and bottom of the base card

  • Next I chose one of the Spectrum Noir's Colorista Dark papers and using their metallic pencils had a little fun colouring in the page!  You get 16 pre-embossed designed papers in the pad  This card looks so much prettier in the flesh!  The finished page was then adhered to the card

If you would like to give the card a new home just leave a comment on this post, the winner will be drawn tomorrow, at random, and announced later that day.  You have until 9.30am Monday to leave a comment and remember we do ship internationally.  Nor does it matter if you have won in the past as it is a random draw
