Having fun with hand made cards

I've been having fun making cards again.  With so many beautiful papers to choose from in the Twelve Days of Christmas collection it was really hard to decide which ones to use for this festive and traditional hand made card.  Eventually I went for a subtle background and then did a bit of fussy cutting :-) and added 3 dimensional poinsettias for a real Christmas feel.  I used the Spellbinder Labels 28 die set for the centre mount, the 12 Days Of Christmas cling stamps for the sentiment. and a little bit of gold glitter for a touch of Christmas Sparkle.
G45 are sharing more ideas for hand made cards on their blog today.  Click the link here to go over and see Annes Mother goose card and follow the tutorial for mine above. 

I'm on Create and Craft TV again at 9am on Thursday morning with Stephanie.  We'll be sharing some  more G45 inspiration, their new collections and a few card making ideas, so if you're able to join us just follow the link below and then click on the watch live button. 
Thanks for calling by and catch up again soon :-) 


  1. Good evening Clare,

    Am just loving your Christmas card and will shortly be taking a look at your tutorial. So pleased to read that you will be on C&C on Thursday and am eagerly looking forward to what you have in store for us G45 fans. I've made a note and have a reminder set on the TV so I'll have no excuse for missing it. Thanks for sharing this with us and hope you enjoy the rest of your evening.
    Margaret A.
