Inspirational post by Helen

Today is my turn to show you some inspiration. Since Christmas is nearing I went for a Christmas card, but not a regular one.

I have started with a Dutch Doobadoo Shape art sheet and a piece of kraft cardstock.
The sheets are plastic and you just draw the size you want with pencil and then cut it with scissors. Then I did the same with the design paper.

I ended up with two sizes of kraft and two sizes of design paper. Also a piece of ribbon, a sentiment and the coloured digi is waiting to be combined into a card.

I guess this is the way I want to put my card together.

Of course we need some embellishments as well; here I am checking what is necessary to finish off my card. Some wood en some dies is what I will use.

Before I put my card together I work on all the edges of the kraft, design paper and around the image with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink and I use a dauber to do so (no dirty fingers here hihi).

I use tacky glue to glue all papers together.

And all this leads to this Christmas card with the lovely digi "Christmas giraffe".

Some close-ups of the card:

Used material:
  • Digi Christmas giraffe
  • Joy Kraft 21x14,8
  • Dutch Doobadoo Shape art mal Bulge

  • Dutch Doobadoo label art A4 Christmas white
  • Craft Emotion - wooden snowflake

  • Crispy ribbon green
  • Memento ink Bamboo leaves
  • Daubers
  • Tacky glue
Hope you like my inspiration.

  1. What a beautiful card Helen. Cutting out all your shapes from a template is true crafting and you're certainly skilled with your scissors. That giraffe is really cute. Barbxx
