Festive Elegance ...

Hi Everybody,

There is a new video today on YouTube that you may like to view and it features Festive Elegance that comes free with Papercraft Essentials 139

For this card I have used both the outline and the solid parts to the stamped Poinsettia and this is the one that is shown in the video.

I make two cards from one stamped and inked panel which has to be a time saver in the run up to the holiday

The video is Festive Elegance

Although this is primarily a Christmas themed gift you can make it work for you all year round

Here I have used the same stamp set but in brighter colours for a more summer themed look

In the gift pack there will be the stamps and an embossing folder as well as a stencil for you to use with your inks or embossing paste

On this card I have used the EF and then coloured and cut out the flowers to add to another card.

You can just make out the embossing paste used with the stencil in the top left corner

A really useful gift and an excellent magazine full of ideas and inspiration to go with it.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
