Julie: Dahlia Flower Cabochon card

Hello again.

Here's a quick and easy cardmade special by the addition of three dahlia flower cabochon:
I used Nesties to build up a few layers before adding a vintage image, a greeting, and finally the resin flowers:
I don't think I'm alone in sometimes thinking "I'll only use one of these on here." when I like an embellishment so much I want to make them stretch a bit further! Yet sometimes it's worth being bold and using more than one at a time, because they can look so nice clustered together in a group, especially when they coordinate with the colours in the rest of the card:
And here are the cabochon I put to use today [click image to visit the shop].

Julie :: Cosmo Cricket Christmas cards

Hello again.

Today's project is something a little bit festive: a set of cards featuring papers from the Cosmo Cricket 'Dear Mr. Claus' 6x6 pad along with a pack of the Mixed Christmas Colour Carnation Flowers, both of which are available in the shop now:

The cards I used were only 3x3 inches, and I had an idea to select out a central image from the paper designs and give them the  feel of a festive - retro - postage stamp:
I covered the front of the cards with one of the less patterned designs, stitched around the square, wrapped seam binding / raffia / lace around them and then layered a perforated stamp die-cut on top:
Finally a stamped greeting and a single paper carantion took up the last bit of decorative space on these tiny cards:
That's my last post here before Christmas - so Season's Greetings to you!

Julie :-)
