This blog was created to act as a record of the cards and other projects that I have made. It is for both my own reference and to help inspire anyone who wants to take a look.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Lime Green and Pink Asterisk Christmas Tree

Well, here's the next in the series of Christmas cards. This one has a more contemporary feel to it with the colours. When I measured this out, I didn't do a very good job and so the middle panel is too wide.

The Asterisk Christmas Tree image, from the Papermania Honey and Hugs Festive Frolics stamp set, was stamped using Ink It Up! Bright Pink pigment ink and embossed using Heat It Up! Pink Embossing powder, as were the edges of the image panel. This was matted onto bright pink handmade paper and then a lime green panel die cut using a Labels 8 Nestabilities die.

A strip of pink and lime green spiral paper, from the Papermania Naughty and Nice paper pad was matted onto a strip of the lime green card punched using the Martha Stewart Scallop Dot border punch.

The sentiment, from the HOTP Christmas Sentiments stamp set, was stamped at the bottom of the card using the bright pink ink and embossed with the pink embossing powder. The circles punched using the border punch were then adhered onto the Christmas tree image.
