Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Nellie Snellen Square Stitch + Joy Christmas tree Die!

Okay, so it is not Christmas yet but hey, why not get organised ahead of time and here is lovely combo of dies embossing folder from Cardmaking Online. Please do pop over to our brand new blog ( click here!)and join and follow us over there as there is a great mix of skills shown forth!

So thought I just had to share. You know it is funny but photos never quite capture it do they?

First of all we have the classic Craft Concepts Embossing Folder - A2 More Dots embossing folder for the base of the card, with the lovely Joy border of trees down the side and the very versatile Nellie Snellen Square Stitched die.

The beauty of these Multiframe dies is that you can chose how much or how little to add or leave out - you can see very different examples on this one here and this one here!
To finish add computer generated greeting and mount on some matching card and ribbon.
Thanks for popping over everyone for a peek and chat and may God bless your day wherever you may be.

Lovely card. It is so nice to be ready for Christmas before the huge rush and bustle of the season.
I like to make a lot of my Christmas cards in the summer up at the lake. We have an RV on a lot and the days are busy boating, swimming, etc but the nights can be long...I like to bring a little box of Xmas card bit s and just work on that.
Yours is stunning! the red and white looks great!

Nice card - that Christmas tree die is fab! Shame I've imposed a ban on myself to stop buying Christmas things as I bought so much in the sales ... but one more little die won't hurt.


Hope your good! x
