FESTIVE FRIDAY 40!

Good morning bloggers and crafty friends....

Week 40!  I really do not know where this year has gone!  So, how many Christmas cards have you made already?  Can you guess how many I've made? LOL, at least 40 but I do tend to make two of each card, sometimes changing the second one slightly.  I'll be addressing envelopes next week and another time saver I have always done is to wrap any presents as soon as I get them home or delivered, I write the details in my Christmas note book, where bought, who for, cost, receipt etc etc and always store them in the same place so none go missing then turn up sometime near Easter!

And still I go back and use mirri!  I've had to take the photo at this angle otherwise you would have my face looming in at you!

The mirri card was cut to 5" x 7" to fit the embossing folder that is by either Crafter's Companion or Sheena Douglass.  It embosses beautifully and I wanted to let you see the gorgeous detail on it

I cut a piece of red card 1/8th  bigger and layered it onto the base card with the mirri on top

The ivy leaves were die cut and embossed (Creative Expressions) and I made several cuts on them so I could adhere them how I liked on the card

The sentiment (freebie magazine stamp) was stamped in red satin ink and the die cut is 
from the same die set.  I added dimensional to the back of the card

I've kept the second photo in just so you can see how different the mirri looks depending on how and where you take the photo.  It looks so dark!

I had already stamped and coloured the robin (from the same freebie magazine stamp set) so all I had to do was fussy cut it and position it in the ivy
The sentiment (Katy Sue Designs) was also stamped with the same ink pad!  


I have this pretty 'Couture creations' embossing folder up for grabs this week.  Who ever wins this I will be taking it out of the packaging just to save a little on postage

As always, leave a comment if you would you your name entered into the draw, you have until 6pm Saturday to do so and the winner will be announced on Sunday's blog post

Until tomorrow....

  1. Love a bit of Fussy Cutting! It's very theraputic! The card is lovely June, with a cute little robin - I cannot bring myself to use this much mirri!!! Perhaps I need to give it a go! Thanks for the inspiration!

    what a very wonderful card and that silver mirri embossed looks so beautiful.
    Love the holly and the gorgeous little bird.
    Now this is funny as my next card I want to make is an embossed one on silver mirri.
    You know what they say great minds and all that jazz. LOL.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  8. June the card is lovely. The embossing folder makes a beautiful frame. I bought myself and a friend dies to cut a robin, i think at the beginning of the year, then, on one of the recent magazines there was either a stamp or a die for a robin.xxx
