It's Very Christmassy Over At The Papermill




Hi everyone, here I am with my first DT post for the Papermill team.  this week we are getting all Christmassy, after all there are only 10 weeks until Christmas and it is time to get festive.  Take a look at the Papermill Blog and check out the fabulous DT creations using Christmas reds and greens.
 
For my DT project I used various red and green card I had in my stash but the DT team used the beautiful Christmas red 240gm card and forest green and postbox red 160gms papers (a light card).  The card comes in a box at £6.00 and the papers come in a box of both colours for £5.00.  Fabulous card to work with and fabulous traditional Christmas colours.




As I only had a short time to produce a DT sample I made a a CAS card using my Silhouette to cut out the holly and berries.  The base card was made with red card, matted with white linen card.  Three inchies stamps (not sure who by) were stamped onto red and green light card and embossed in silver pearl powder, cut to size and added to the card.  I embossed the flourish with the same embossing powder, added it to the card with the berries and leaves.  Finally a greeting was stamped and the card finished inside with a white linen paper insert.



I had some berries and leaves left so made a few festive tags.  All the card and paper used is from Papermilldirect, pop over and take a look at the fabulous range of cards on offer and check out their special offers.

Ho Ho Ho, getting into the Christmas mood now, pop over to the Papermill and check out their fabulous cards and papers, there will be all the colours you could want to use on your cards this Christmas.
