Special delivery

Good morning wonderful Scrapping Cottage fans. I hope you’ve had an amazing week. We’re already at Friday, where did the week go? It's Wendy bringing you the end of the week blog today and here’s today’s card

So we are in October which is my favourite month as I have my birthday, and I also get to do a blog post on my birthday, so expect something sensational!

I'm very excited to be using some of the new Christmas designs which are AMAZING! You just have time to get 30%  off the dies if you order by 9pm PCT

So here’s a light tutorial for you.

I’ve started with a navy slimline card and have added some snow using the ‘Hills Slimline’ dies. I love the versatility of these dies so one to pop in your basket. The second layer has been mounted with 1mm 3D foam pads so I could slot various items behind there

To make the main body of the card I’ve used the ‘Santa’s delivery’ die. I love the cheeky Santa, the cute reindeer and the plethora of gifts. The large trees have also been taken from this die and I think Santa has been naughty and taken a star off the tree :-) Everything is very easy to assemble and what I like about CottageCutz is that the colours you need for each element are grouped on the die so you haven’t got card all over the die 

For the smaller trees I used the new ‘Ice Skating Kids’ die

Finally I used an older die but still really handy and that is ‘Santa stuck in Chimney’ I thought this was great to leave the presents in.

As it’s the weekend, I have a bonus card for you

This is such an easy card to make. I have used the new ‘Joyful Snowman’ die. All of the elements to spell the word Joy have been cut out 3 times and layered to give them a chipboard effect. I have also used the ‘Nested stitched Scalloped Rectangles’ to put on the base card. I have finished off by using a white pen to highlight the gold elements and some flat backed pearls on the holly

I really hope you like the cards and you’re inspired to start making your Christmas cards 

Have a wonderful weekend and make sure you have plenty of time to craft.
