File the old and make space for the new!

As the new year approaches there are exciting opportunities waiting in the wings, some of them I already know about and some will be surprises! I have been invited to join a couple of DT teams from January, exciting times ahead.

Meanwhile Imagine That! Digis by Kris is also having a few changes in the new year so this month is the final progressive freebie challenge, I could not miss the last one!

Materials used:SAM_2557(watermarked)
Imagine That! Digis by Kris – Happy Howlidays
green and red mirri card
red glossy card
blending card
square white card blank
decorative square die
Happy Christmas acrylic stamp from stash
Copic pens
Diamond Sprinkles

Print out the image at the required size and colour with Copic pens.

Fold the card blank to make an easel card. Cut a square of red glossy card to size and attach to the fold on the front of the card blank.

Die cut a decorative edged square from green mirri card and a mat for the image from red mirri card. Cut the image down to the correct size then mat and layer it onto the red and green card before attaching to the card front.

Use the Diamond Sprinkles to high light the snow.

For the stopper die cut a matching rectangle from the green mirri card a red matt. Stamp out the greeting and cut to size. Mat and layer it all up and attach inside the card with 3d foam pads.

The little dog looks very happy to find a bone in his mail box!

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
