Sandie uses the new papers


This is Sandie's last project on our DT - she moves on to more publishing work. We have been delighted to have her on our Team - her creativity & ideas have inspired us all & we will miss you Sandie - please keep in touch & good fortune in your papercrafting.
'Christmas 1977 Layout

My projects this month is based on the magical new paper range called 'The Musical Christmas Collection'. The papers are certainly ornate, and replicate the old world vintage themes of days-gone-by.

I opted to use one of the papers, 'A Berry Merry Christmas, and totally highlight all the magical images within.

 The boxboard frame has been covered with the most beautiful 'Kiwi', German Glass Glitter, which can be purchased in a set of eight different colours, or in single colour vials. It is easy to work with, though care must be taken when applying, as it is 'glass'. I used a ziplock bag to hold the frame in till the adhesive was dry - and kept pressing with my fingers through the bag to set the glitter. I was also able to tip residue back into the vial to save waste. You can find the German Glass Glitter 'Here'. (link - http://www.megsgarden.com/contents/en-us/d587.html)

 The card I created is replicated on days-gone-by - they used to have such beautiful card, full of verses, and lots of lace. I used the paper elements to create a 3D effect.
