About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

More Nordic Christmas

Morning! Back with another sneak peek from the fab new Crafter's Companion Nordic Christmas Collection. 
The base card for this is made from A4 Matt Black card. I scored one piece at 8" and folded it. Then attached another piece of A4 to the flap - and then trimmed. The image for this card is one of the 3D Toppers. The image is created to look three dimensional - but I couldn't resist printing a second copy and doing a bit of decoupage. I used a couple of the papers from the CD to matt and layer with more Matt Black card. 

I then used lots of elements from the Embellishments section to echo the elements on the topper - a stocking, bunting and candy cane - and I used my Die'sire Holly die with one of the papers. The 'Happy Christmas' is from the Sentiments section - and again, I printed a second copy so I could decoupage it!!
Don't forget to tune into Ideal World at 9pm to see Fiona launch this fab new collection!
