Accordion cards for Christmas

I have to confess that I am not the biggest fan of Christmas these days but all bar 2 briefs from Crafters Companion have been for Christmas products so, here are some more!

These are the Accordion style cards with Christmas overlays - very intricate!

Here I used the Snowman die and Snowflakes to decorate.

This one could even be a wedding card

I used the Christmas Bells here.

Good old Black and White

And my favourite Poinsettia die.

And last, I had a play with the first section of this one and cut a circle from the centre panel, then suspended the small sized scallop inside.

Unfortunately the photographs came out a little dark but Santa and his reindeers are flying high over the rooftops here.

Again the versatility is brilliant on these although a little tip if you are using them - join the overlays horizontally, not vertically for extra strength.

Thanks for taking a look.

And a wedding............

Another occasion now - a wedding on a beach.
I found these perfect papers by Bo Bunny whilst out with Lynn recently at the Craft Barn.
The base card is 8x8" (again!)

The theme of the wedding was coral and powder blue on the beach in the US so I had to include Sand Dollars.

The letters are Sizzix and the frame was made by tearing some of the wood grain paper and mounting on 3d foam.

The die is a Penny Black one.

I also got some small Tim Holtz stamps of shells and starfish which I stamped, cut out and added too.
A little stickles on the the names to finish it off - can't resist a little bling!

Congratulations to the happy couple.

A Christening..........................

Back to the Doodlebug papers for this one - 
8x8" in size (seems to be my favourite at the moment) and layered with white bazzill.

Bella the Elephant was requested again for this one and this is the full stamp with all of the balloons which I stamped and paper pieced.  Letters were cut with one of my QK alphabets and the word Godson added to the balloons which were then coated with a thick layer of Crystal Lacquer.

Some lace and a ribbon were attached across the card with a bow and the central panel placed over this with some foam pads and glue gel.

I added lots of gems for some sparkle too.
