Christmas at 613 Avenue Create


Good Morning,
Today we have a brand new challenge over at 613 Avenue Create.

As always its Anything Goes with the Optional Twist of Winter/ Christmas

Here is my project for the challenge…

It’s our granddaughter’s first Christmas and I wanted to make her a keepsake card for her memory box.
So I decided to try my hand at a shadow box card. I can’t believe I’ve never made one of these before!
I used a 160 gsm weight of paper for the actual box but mounted it onto a card blank which is 300gsm. I found using a thicker card made it difficult to fold and manipulate the box during construction.
I printed paper onto the card from the Nitwit collection Joyful hearts - here
The snowflake was made from a memory box die and the foliage was cut using one of the dies from a set I bought from ‘The Works’. It cuts like a dream and there were 5 dies in the pack for £3 – amazing!
The Christmas tree and snowflake on the mittens was made using a stamps by Chloe Christmas tree and sthen heat embossed with Wow embossing powder ( Blizzard) – all available here
The die cuts were glittered using Tonic glitter.
The sentiment was made on the PC.
I drew my own mittens onto ValerianeDigital sweater paper and then fussy cut them adding a touch of glitter onto the cuffs.
The ribbon is from my stash.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges ….

Come and Get It - W3E - (December) Christmas

3D twist at 613 Avenue Create


Good Morning,
Today we have a brand new challenge over at 613 Avenue Create.
As always its Anything Goes with the Optional Twist of Creating a 3D card.
Here is my project for the challenge…
The front


The sides
I just love these pyramid cards they look so complicated, but are really easy to make and can be made in any size you like.
You can find lots of tutorials online for these.
This one was made using three, four inch squares of gold pearlescent card.
The paper is from a digital set called Nordic Gold available here from Mninedesigns.
I made the flower by stamping onto vellum and heat embossing WOW embossing powder. The stamp is the Four Petal Flower Set from Stamps by Chole - here.
I only used the middle size and the smallest flower but stamped them several times. I then layered them to create the flower.
The die cut reindeer were made using the Tonic reindeer family.
The snowflakes were punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
The gems and brown glitter are from my stash.
