Shirley has been busy making up her Christmas cards. 

We have a collection of her cards to show you over the next few days.

The cards below have been created using Stamp It stamps and printed paper from Allison Ellis. 

A simple design always looks amazing when you get your colours right.

Folded Circle Christmas Tree Card

Can you believe that this tree is made from half a circle!!

What a great way to use up all of your Xmas paper scraps.

One of our customers found the link to the pattern and showed us.
Thanks Astrid for sharing this great idea.

Gaie saw our card and went home and tried making the tree by cutting out the circle with the largest Scalloped Circle Spellbinders die and she said it also looks fantastic. Thanks for that great tip Gaie.

Click on the link above to see the original tree card and then on the link below to get the pattern for the circle.

Happy folding!!!!!

Koala christmas

You don't always have to have a Christmas stamp to make a Christmas card.

The Tree Koala stamp from Stamp It is a wonderful stamp to use and would be perfect on your cards that you send away overseas.

Tree Koala

Here we have stamped the koala onto Bazzill card and coloured him in with Liquid Pearls. We have also used circle dies to make a bauble and Christmas rub ons to finish decorating the card.

The koala below has been coloured in with Spectrum Noir pens. We used the circle dies again to make a bauble. We turned our bauble into a hanging decoration but you could adhere it to a card or scrapbooking page.

All items used on these cards are available at Crafty Capers.

The packs of foliage are only $10.75 per pack. 
The packs of foliage, stamps and paper used on these cards are all in stock now at Crafty Capers.
