Top Tip Tuesday #15 - Get Embellishing!


Morning everyone!!

How are you doing this christmas week?  I can't believe that I have done so many posts in one week LOL!!  Making all these Christmas cards is now definately helping me feel christmassy in this Dubai heat!

This week over at Top Tip Tuesday we have a 2 week challenge with FIVE fabulous prizes to be won!  Our tip is how to make apperture cards out of punches and the challenge is:

GET EMBELLISHING

Which basically means that if you add anything to your card, like ribbon, brads, flowers etc, you can enter our challenge - as many times as you like!!

This card I made for my friend to give her husband.  We saw these fab metal 'love' tags and we both bought one to go on the cards for our husbands.  I love how it turned out!

Recipe: 
snowflake stamp from Hobbycraft, 'Love' metal tag from Hallmark, Paper from (forgotten), Basic Grey chipboard, Rub On letters from Making Memories.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Lil Red Wagon - Rub Ons - the name is done in rub on letters
Craft Your Days Away #10 - Punch it Out - my snowflakes are punches

Thank you for stopping by and Merry Christmas!!


Pin It Now!
