ESAD Goodbye Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the ESAD blog hop ! We are saying goodbye to the August - December  mini catalogue. There are some fabulous products in this Catalogue so if you have not ordered your favourites , don't wait too long !

I wanted to create a diamond fold card and  as usual I created more than one ! I have used A 4 cardstock for my cards . They will need a larger envelope so you can either make your own or just buy some extra large ones . These cards have the wow factor without being at all difficult . Once I had decided on  my design it was a simple matter of putting it all together ! Don't you think that elk looks fabulous ? he is sitting on a circle of flocked vellum , a piece of DSP punched out with the Posted For You punch and another strip of DSP sets of my design . 

Folds flat for posting .

In this next sample I've used some copper foil behind my beautiful dove . I also coloured some linen  thread using my Cinnamon Cider blends and popped it behind my dove .

Folded flat 

My next card uses the Curvy dies with the Curvy Christmas stamp set . I have silver heat embossed my bauble , coloured it with my blends , then  have gone over the centre piece with White Shimmer paint which I have mixed in my Wink Of Stella pen - I explain this in my recent video here

Finally I cut the fabulous metallic mesh ribbon into  0.5 cm widths and tied the bows for my baubles to coordinate with my silver embossing and used  Elegant faceted gems to finish my card.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my projects and now its time to see what the very talented Narelle Fasulo has created for us!
