Laura Rumble – Christmas Card – Candy Cane & Holly Sprig

Hi Guys!  Laura here sharing a cute Christmas card using a couple of the cut files that were designed for Diecutting Essentials. They are available here on the website with the added bonus of getting them free with the code you can find in issue 58 of the magazine.

I’ve used the Holly and part of the Candy Cane Stripe Border.

I pulled out some Shimmerz original paints which are packed full of chunky mylar glitter.  I painted a wobbly line in red making sure it was wider than the stripe border cut file and that the edges were uneven and interesting.  Whilst that was drying I painted both parts of the holly cut file.

I stamped a small greeting above the red paint line using StickerKitten’s Alpaca Wishes stamp set.  I also added a few gold paint splatters… gold paint is always a good idea on Christmas crafts!  I cut small strips of foam adhesive and attached it to the back of the border and adhered it above the red paint.  The final step is layering up the holly pieces slightly offset and adhering them over the border carefully popping up any pieces that need support with more foam adhesive.

COVID 19 UPDATE – Unfortunately I am currently unable to process any further physical cut file orders for at least the next 2 weeks.  The logistics of dealing with the new and necessary restrictions, while also homeschooling my children and caring for my Dad, mean that it is becoming more and more difficult and the restrictions may even become tighter as we seek to control this awful situation.  Obviously I’m keeping a close watch on the news so that I can start processing and posting again as soon as possible.  You can still browse and order but they will not go out in the post until there is a further update.

Digital orders can still be purchased and instantly downloaded as normal and remain unaffected by the restrictions.  However, there is a slight glitch on the website that means some devices are duplicating items as they are added to the basket.  You can remove them in the final screen and I can obviously organise speedy refunds for any that slip through the net.

Thank you so much for your continued support for Pretty My Page.  Every order and message is so important to me but even more so now.  Wishing you all health and happiness x
