Naughty or Nice?

Naughty or Nice by Design Team Member Karen Leahy:

Nothing screams traditional to me more than Santa and I loved the photo of my husband trying to sneak a look at Santa’s book listing who was naughty and who was nice. The Bo Bunny Tis TheSeason papers were just perfect for such a traditional Christmas photograph.

I started by edging the gorgeous wood grain paper on the back of the Ornaments paper with thin strips cut from the striped back of the nostalgia paper to make a red and green border. Although I carefully mitred the corners to keep them neat I didn’t like the way the stripes met and so I made small corner pieces cut from a square of red cardstock, inked, folded and attacked with small dark green brads. 
For the frame I mounted the picture onto bright red cardstock and then added a border of candy cane baker’s twine using double sides tape. The packaging of the paper pack was so gorgeous I just had to use it, so I cut the title block saying Tis the Season out and used it as a tab for the photo frame mount. To echo that circle I cut one of the roundels from the numbered sheet of paper which said ‘Absolutely no peeking’ and just begged to be used on this page. I mounted it on some of the red cardstock and on some of the dark green that was the reverse side of the numbers sheet and finished it with a baker’s twine bow to tie it in with the rest of the frame before adding it to the frame on foam pads. 

I cut lots of strips of the different papers and used them as banners beneath the frame. This is a great way of using up scraps of paper. You know I never throw ANYTHING away!  I then added the frame on the top. 

I added some word strips, a cut out title from white  and red card and finished it with one of the chipboard Santa embellishments.

Ooh La La & Annie with Ted

Today I am using the Delectable Annie with Ted stamp  in conjunction with the beautiful "Ooh La La" collection from Kaisercraft.

This is such a simple card to make, beause of the beautiful background paper I used:  "Belle". This is a 12x12 sheet but you can use the smaller version from the 6.5"x6.5" pad if you would rather have a smaller design.   The die-cuts are from the Ooh La La Collectable Pack.

 I coloured my little Annie with Copic markers and sat her in a circle of Prima craft beads. Using Liquid Pearls a few dots were added around her. The circle is a Spellbinders die.

 The inside of the card was decorated in the same paper, so one sheet did the entire card. The bottom of the card front and inside, is the reverse side of the paper. Butterfly from the Ooh La La Collectable Pack.


Have a great weekend. xxx
