Don't you just LOVE a freebie!

I'm addicted to crafting and cardmaking magazines and it's even better when they have a freebie with them.  I got the Australian Simply Cards last week and it had a fantastic detailed die cut sentiment.


In the magazine they used lots of blues and whites with the die so I gave it a go.

A blue Christmas

One of my colleagues saw it on Facebook and asked me to do a sample in red for her.  I did two different samples...

Happy Christmas

She liked the second one and has ordered 20!  So got a bit of a production line going on... folded the red card bases, cut the white panel and then embossed it. Added double sided tape.   Die cut the red pieces (Nellie Snellen die) then die cut the white sentiment pieces.  Now just to put them all together.   I've got a few commissions to do as well... two box cards and an exploding box for a 40th wedding anniversary.   will be kept busy for a while, so if I don't get time to leave you a comment, please forgive me. I will be visiting.

Awesome Dawn! Pretty cool that you can sell your cards. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to do that... Maybe a craft show?

Your embossed backgrounds and scalloped ovals are perfect for this sentiment! Gorgeous cards, Dawn!
