Hello Fellow Crafters

I make over 300 Christmas cards every year for Charities, family and friends so you will find loads of Christmas cards on my blog also the odd present, gift ideas, stocking fillers and table decorations.

I hope you enjoy what you see.

Yesterday I dusted off my craft-robo and set about making some die cuts from my old card stock.
A :- to clear some place.
B :- so I had some shapes ready to use.

I cut out scalloped ovals,flowers of various shapes and sizes,butterflies,boxes the list goes on....

Anyway, I wanted to make a card with all my die cuts.

Catch the bug has a sketch this week so I went for this.

All elements were cut on my craft-robo and the image  is a freebie at Bugaboo stamps this week ( you will see I've already him on Friday's post) was print onto the sheet before cutting out with the robo.
On removing the letters I lost the center to the 'O' and 'R's so couldn't put them in.
I added gems to the center of the flowers to finish the card.

This card has been entered into :-
