Another Christmas Card

I thought I had better make a start on the Christmas cards so have been busy making some today
I decided I would put this one on here for you to see

I bought the Black and Silver  ribbon a few months ago thinking it would come in handy for some Christmas cards
I used 3 silver bell embroidery peel offs , these were stuck to some white paper then sewn with a metallic green thread 
I used a white A5 size card, stuck a strip of the ribbon down the side of the card
I cut a  piece of  black card   7cm wide by 19cm long  this was then stuck centrally on the main part of the card and edged with a silver border peel off
The 3 bell peel offs were stuck onto the black piece of card with foam pads
I added a small silver Happy Christmas peel off above and below the middle bell

Christmas Pudding Card

 I used
Christmas Pudding Template
Snowman decoupage
Brown backing paper
Print the Christmas pudding template twice  once on plain white paper and once on white canvas card
Print the snowman decoupage on to glossy photo paper A5 size
I printed out the brown backing paper A5 size as well
Cut out and made up the decoupage then get on with making the card

Using the  template that I printed on canvas I cut around the pudding shape and folded along the straight line
I then used a red sakura gelly roll pen to colour in the holly berries and a green one to colour in the holly leaves

From the paper template I cut out the bottom of the pudding and used it as a template on the brown backing paper and cut around it

This was then stuck to the bottom  of the card

To finish off the card I added the snowman decoupage to the bottom of the pudding

 * As an afterthought I used a white sakura soufflĂ© pen  to put small dots over the bottom of the pudding to look like snowflakes

Swing Card

Megan made her first swing card today 
On Free Craft Downloads we have started holding Bi-Monthly card challenges for forum members
Septembers is only our 2nd one and it is to make a DL size swing card
Megan asked if she could make one - as she  is not a forum member she can't enter the challenge so she made one to put on here instead
She said she hopes it would help people who don't know how to make one
