‘Tis the season…

Hello there 🙂

Hope you had a very nice Thanksgiving if you’re living in the US!

As the weekend is coming, I’m preparing for my third craft class with friends, some of them are new to paper crafting, others are advanced, but everyone is having fun, especially with the Big Shot and the dies: they can’t believe it is so easy to cut out perfect star shapes or dry emboss ^^

I have a card and a little keepsake box to share today, as my theme for the classes was “Stars”, so I made plenty of different design. Here is one of them:

Shimmer and Shine - Tis the season


Am I the only one to feel like it’s fireworks exploding in the sky? 🙂 This stamp set is sooo pretty, and versatile too, because stars are one of my all-time favourite and I’m sure I’ll be able to use them later on other occasions.

I used the colours Real Red and Smoky Slate for a typical Christmas look. The sentiment is handcut, then popped up using foam adhesive. The inside is decorated as well, and I might even decorate the envelope because I think it gives a really neat finish to a handmade card.

Here is the little keepsake box I made in no time with the Curvy Keepsake Die, to match the card. Once again, the die makes it so easy to build your box, you just need to pass it twice in the Big Shot to cut the two parts, and then assemble with adhesive, and Voilà ! On the little tag, I added the die-cut of my daughter’s initial using the Little Letters Thinlit dies.
