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.
