Not Just for Christmas!!

Hi Everybody,

The Christmas Ornaments  is a 22 piece die set that is new for this season and it is available from Craft Stash.

You can have lot of fun making your cards for this year from this die set, but don't put it away at the end of the year 

This is a set that can be used all year round and the card to the right is just one of those ways.

All I have done is take the round ornament die and cut it three times, and turned it upside down to look like balloons.

Either colour them as I have done or use coloured card to make things easier

I have added hand drawn strings to two of them and the small bows to each string. But to the third one I have used a stamped sentiment as the string.

The inked clouds in the background have tiny birds flying in the sky and I added a little shading to the embellishments cut from the dies and added to each balloon.

This would be a good card for a fun type of man in your life and also one that children would love too. Add their age to the balloons and let them fly high in the sky

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. I love the idea of the Happy Birthday as a string. Thank You or sharing that.

  2. Good Morning Christina. This is lovely and so versatile. You are right when you say not just for Christmas. And yes would cover quite a lot of mens cards. Could be next on my list. Thankyou Christina. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

  3. Christina you really do think of everything I would never have thought of using the dies for balloons.
