I found this great bow die by Robert Addams at www.papercrafts.co.uk. He has some fantastic dies that I'm looking forward to purchasing after Christmas.

As I had 18 label sized card pieces left I made them all into Christmas cards. I'm not sure you can make it out in this photo but each one is subtley different.
I used different embossing folders and two different word dies.

gift card holder set. I will definitely be doing this more often.
This card was made using the 3D label, window die, and my trusty favourite flagpole die.

I made this banner using the 8cm and 5cm stitched framelits die and stayed with the red theme of Karen Burniston's November challenge.
circle and labels set to create the cream glittering 'bauble' and just snipped one of the label sections off each one.

I was really excited about doing Karen Burniston's latest design challenge which was to create something that appeared to defy gravity. I had the perfect card in mind for my daughter who was just about to became 12 years old.
On our hiking holiday last year we bought this lovely little diamond shaped kite with a face on it. My daughter decided it needed a name and christened him 'Bob'. He now is a regular on our hikes were we try to take a photo of him bobbing along behind us every chance we get.
I used Karens pop 'n' cut label die in my A2 horizontal card die for the inside of the card, but instead of using the A2 die for the outside I used the tri-fold ornate card die. The oval and wavy label were the perfect accessory for the front of my card to hide the join on my tree trunk.
The girl is a stamp from the gorjuss collection, on the stamp she is holding an umbrella but with a bit of fiddling and a lot of washi tape to conceal it I was able to adapt it to look like she is holding the kite string. I coloured her using my daughters favourite colours with my letraset pro markers.
As I wanted to make the card into a scene I elongated the trunk of my Karen Burniston 3D pop up trees placed a trunk at either side of the front piece of card. I love that I was able to use Karens new labels and stitched framelits as well as the framelits that match the pop 'n' cut label die.
Karens flagpole decorative strip die is one of my favourite dies and I use it quite often but not with the lovely street lamp that is also on it.The kite was a Sizzix sizzlits die on to which I added eyes, nose and a mouth. The spotty border along the bottom finishes my card off wonderfully:)

I made this card to give my 7 year old an example to follow, then let her loose with my crafty stuff!
These are her efforts...
And then she became bored with following my instructions and told me to go away and leave her to it!
Hummmmm..... I hope Jasmine appreciates it!!!
