Frosty The Snowman

Hi again…Emma here! It’s time for me to share my second card using the Mint Twist collection and this one, is a really cute rocker card which I thought went so well with this fun collection of papers and embellishments.

To make this card, I cut a circle from a heavyweight cardstock, scored down the centre and folded in half. This gives you the basic rocker card blank. Next, I added a smaller circle of white card and blended the edges with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink and using a green pen, added some faux stitching around the edge. I then cut a smaller circle from a piece of the Peppermint paper and adhered this onto the centre of my medium sized circle and then, attached these matts onto my folded card blank.

I added the Snowman, large Christmas tree, Merry Christmas and Rudolph die cuts from the Collectables pack onto the front of my card. My tip for making one of these cards, is…whatever you add onto the front of your card, always ensure that your card is perfectly balanced in weight on either side, so that it will still maintain the rocking motion. I tied some of the Sew Easy twine around two of the Stocking die cuts from the Collectables pack and added these to each side of my rocker card.

Finally, I added white adhesive pearls onto the Christmas tree and red gems onto Rudolph’s nose and on the top of the tree and used Glossy Accents to accentuate the snowman’s eyes, nose and buttons.

Thanks for popping by to take a look at my little creation and I really hope you like it!

See you again soon.

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Hi everyone…it’s Emma here!! Can you believe that another month has flown by and it’s already time to share my next set of projects with you all?!?!

I’ve been really lucky to be able to work with the Mint Twist collection which is such a bright, fun and contemporary set for Christmas. I made a couple of cards, using different card blank designs to showcase Mint Twist and this is my first project…I hope you like it!

To begin with, I made a box frame card blank measuring 15cm square and decorated the outside frame of the card using the holly design paper from the Mint Twist Paper Pad. I then cut and matted a 10cm piece of the Peppermint paper, onto a piece of Apple Weave Kaisercard and used this to line the recessed section of my box card. Next, I added the large Santa die cut from the Collectables pack onto the matts of backing card and paper and used Flower Soft to create the look of snow on the ground.

Using some more of the die cuts from the Collectables pack, I added the Merry Christmas onto the front of my card and then made a bunting of stockings, hanging from some Sew Easy Twine which I tied into bows at each end.

Finally, I added some red rhinestones as finishing touches on my box.

That’s all from me for this post and I really hope this card has given you a little bit of inspiration to create your own Christmas cards using the Mint Twist collection.

Bye for now and see you soon.

Our three Christmas collections feature a variety of different styles so, whatever type of project you are planning, there’s something for everyone.

Firstly, for the traditional Christmas look, we have the Turtle Dove collection – featuring traditional colours and designs including, of course, a Turtle Dove. This large collection features ten double-sided 12×12 papers as well as collectables, speciality papers, sticker sheets and much more. Included in this collection (and the other two new collections this month) is a perforated sheet of “To/From” tags.

Secondly, for a vintage Christmas look, we have the Twig & Berry collection – featuring vintage style patterns in shades of rich red and bottle green. Again, this collection features ten 12×12 double-sided papers, two sticker sheets, three speciality papers, collectables, rub-ons and a 6.5inch Paper Pad.

Our third collection offers a modern Christmas look. The Mint Twist collection features funky modern designs in bright colours. This collection features nine 12×12 double-sided papers, two sticker sheets, speciality papers, collectables, rub-ons and a 6.5inch Paper Pad. This collection also features Epoxy Stickers and a fabulously bright Ribbon Pack.

Also this month we have 26 new Christmas themed Wood Flourishes including Baubles, Holly, Flourishes and Candy Canes. Most of the designs actually coordinate with elements in the three new collections so they extend the layout possibilities even more.

And of course we have lots of new Christmas themed Beyond-the-Page including Silhouette Wall Art and Standing Words. We also have three new types of Advent Calendar including a large (or should that be HUGE) Tree shaped Advent Calendar. See all the Advent Calendars in one place by clicking this link.

To make it easier to select the ideal Christmas product we have organised everything festive within a Christmas Products section with collections and all other products accessible from the tabs towards the top of the screen.
