Platinum Pearlised Card - Table decorations and 25th card



A quick post to let you know about another great offer at the Papermill, A4 Platinum Pearlised Card 300gm, £7.50 for a small box, they are also offering free P&P on orders over £25.  Here are a few things I made for the DT this week.  As most of you will have made and sent your cards I  made something for the Christmas dinner table, a napkin ring and a place setting.

A few years ago I made a set of wedding invitations using thick vellum which I have quite a bit left and thought I would use some of it, it co-ordinated beautifully with the platinum pearl card.  Using a Tim Holts Christmas embossing folder I embossed the vellum and cut out strips with the word NOEL on each.  These were mounted onto the platinum pearl and added to the place card and wrapped round a napkin.  I cut small baubles using a Spellbinders nesting die from the platinum pearl, carefully embossed each with the word NOEL then swiped a white ink pad over the word to highlight it.  This was then added to the vellum matching up the NOEL.




I made the tree decoration in the same way, sewing the vellum to the card, added a charm and a white ribbon to hang it up.



I really liked the idea of the embossed vellum and thought the colours would be great for a 25th wedding anniversary card.  Using a flowery embossing folder for the vellum, white pearlised card (also from the Papermill) and the platinum perlised card this is what I came up with.



That's it for now, off to do some Christmas preparation and maybe wrap a few presents.  Life is hectic here so if I have not returned your comments please bear with me, and a big thank you for your support your comments are very much appreciated.
