Two for Xmas

2 Xmas cards I inked & embossed the edge of card .diecut the opposite edge added ribbon and then the flower which takes alittle time but result is well worth it
Flower how to make:-  Paper can be patterned on both sides or one sided. You need to punch out 8 circles then fold in half and in half again then using your bone folder mark the edge on top either side (I have pencilled the line in to explain it better)then fold back edge, turn over and fold into the middle on either side. Place and glue each petal as shown on top then fill in spaces with other petals place brad or small circle in middle . Finished one is on the left

Bringing in the Harvest

One of my favourite stamps love the little mice such cheeky chappies.
Image stamped in memento black ink coloured with promarkers, for the mice sandstone,pastel pink and ivory.
The berries Amethyst, poppy and black. leaves olive green and moss.the background is a page out of a book covered in autumn leaves. then I used some Papermania recycled brown card cut out using an the large x-cut  die ,then with die still in place distressed with gathered twigs, then cut out with next size die and distressed the edges with scattered straw. My leaves are made with an x-cut maple leaf punch  I distressed card with scattered straw then used a soft brush and added fire brick red for a lovely autumn colour before punching out leaves.The green leaves are Marianne dies. finished off with a sentiment and a ladybug.

What a day I  am trying to make cards and watching the Olympics, not a good combination so much excitement all the medals we are winning, any way I managed to finish this card:-
I used my Papermania "Beautiful-Folium " stamp with Soft Suede "stampin-up ink
I made the flowers out of the backing paper which had foliage printed all over. I die cut them added a brad for the middle, spritzed with water and scrunched up.
I used my tonic punch for the corners and a sm. tonic flower punch for the smaller flowers 

I am entering this card into My Craft Creation Blog Sketch Challenge 2.
