Merry Christmas

Kia Ora Koutou

I have had to make some last minute Christmas cards and thank goodness I had some poinsettias made and Heartfelt Creations has images ready to die cut and add to my cards.  I had some fun with mixing some products from Marianne Designs and Sue Wilson along with Heartfelt Creations papers.

Triple Easel Wedding Card Featuring Heartfelt Creations Flowers

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back.  Today I have a triple easel wedding card.  I had just sold a card on Trade Me and the one I had in the shop was not something I could send out.!  So I made another one using Lush Lilacs and Classic Roses and a different embossing folder to the previous ones I had done before.   Here is the link to my previous post and there is a link for instructions on how to make this card.  They are a lot easier than they look as it is just three different easel cards joined together.  Next time I will be placing the easels closer together but I was in a rush today.

These are so easy to make and I hope that I have inspired you to try one for yourself.
