Xmas Berries

Hopefully yesterdays card that I scheduled, appeared ok, otherwise you wont know what I'm talking about LOL !!

Todays card is another one using Craftwork Cards Candi and also a Woodware stamp.

On this simple image I didn't have the right colour candi so luckily I had some white so I used my promarkers to achieve the right colour.

I quite often buy white embellishments so that I can colour match my projects better. 

I have a Martha Stewart punch around the page punch of snowflakes. I decided to try and make the corner punch works inwards rather than outwards.

I cut my piece of card so that was larger than my piece of pattern paper. Then using a craft knife, I carefully cut out the middle so that I had created a frame large enough to be able to use the punch. I had to work backwards with the punch, looking at the underneath blades to line up the paper correctly.

I punched the 4 internal corners, and then slipped the corners of my patterned paper inside the snowflake (like photo mounts) to hold the paper.

I had some cream ribbon with red snowflakes on which matched perfectly.
So I backed the ribbon on a strip of red card at the top and bottom.

A classic colour combination of red and cream.
