Quick Fairy Lights

Quick Fairy Lights - By Jenny. 
I'm finding the loopy border peel offs XL780U ever so versatile, they are lovely and bouncy for borders on cards but I am also loving them for fairy lights on Christmas Trees.

Having done many years of crafting for school bazaars I know how it is necessary to have quick, easy, cheap and presentable items and have often made little decorated Trees. Decorate one side and add a little string for tags, decorate both sides and use them as tree or window hangers and best of all they are really fun to make and the children love to help and I have always sold out of all I make which can't be bad. The decorated trees look good on cards too or use the same techniques to decorate the trees on our new Tree Cards.

The trees above all use the peel off border as fairy lights. The loops can be coloured with gelly roll glaze pens which sort of glow, the red uses the souffle version which dries opaque so shows up really well on a dark colour or, try a tiny touch of glitter as in the green version. The gold tree with gemstones uses the border as the wire adding the gems below the loop to look like the bulb which is quite effective I think.

I also love the gem dots from ZL774U placed over the loops, being glitter they give a gorgeous sparkle and look like the little LED globe lights that are popular. These gem dots also look brilliant as baubles and the multi foil on black (colour 11) give a great selection of coloured edges which look good with the glaze pens.

Jenny.

Happy Christmas Card Project

Happy Christmas Card Project - By Donna. 
I like using the tall, upright cards, this DSF08P-161 card is printed with a Kraft brown finish and the design is very simple to do.

Cover the left half of the front panel with indigo Colorset dotty paper CDG169P and stick a strip of gold ribbon (I used RIB12-01) down the card over the join. Stick another strip of ribbon across the card a little higher than half way up, as this just looks better than placing it in the centre.

Add two red glitter star strips ZL696U-54 to the right-hand side; cutting them so they don't cover the ribbon. Stick the topper TOP001 to a piece of gold Mirri card MIR01C and cut around to leave a narrow border. Add a little red gem GEM91 and stick in place at an angle using mini fixers ADH18.

Decorate the dotty paper side of the card with some red glitter stars ZL175U-54 to finish. Hope you enjoy making this card.

Donna.

Polar Bear Card Project

Polar Bear Card - By Donna. 
This project features our brand new Christmas toppers TOP001 (you could also use the Creative Images CIM504A) and they look fabulous with the white/silver holographic spotty paper CDH170P. Use an SF06C-113 card blank. Cut two 12mm wide strips of paper. Stick one onto the card at 2cm down from the top and going all the way across. Cut the other to 10cm long and stick onto the card from the fold line at 2.5cm from the bottom edge.

Matt the two pictures onto silver Mirri card and layer onto the card using sticky fixers ADH05. Run lines of XL703U-02 silver borders down the card at all different lengths and add a snowflake from XL442U-02 to the bottom of each border. Glue a white/silver Happy Christmas banner CDS015G between the two panels and finally glue a red gem GEM91 to each panel over some of the berries.

Donna.
