International Blog Highlights December!


For the final time this year I am entering my cards into Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights. 

The theme, as always, is 'Thank You' - you can check out all of the thank you cards entered by clicking on the banner below.

If you like my card, please vote for me - you can find more information on how to vote further down this page.
At first glance, you may think I have created a Christmas card, however, these are thank you cards!

I think they are perfect to send to those who have kindly gifted you or your family with a Christmas present, or perhaps just as a thank you during those wintery months.


I've used the 'Thank you snow much' stamp from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set - this was the only stamp I hadn't used and I am so glad I did, it's so lovely embossed!


These thank you cards are the perfect design to mass create.

They are so simple to put together but equally still feel that little bit special due to the silver foil accents and silver embossing.


I've used the stunning Feels Like Frost DSP. 

The wintery scenes are so beautiful - I love the bokeh dots in the images. 


To get three cards out of one piece of 6"x 6" DSP, I've simply cut the patterned paper into 2" strips and then cut the height down to fit my card base.

I cut strips of silver foil to place either side of the DSP  (there is no way I'd cut a piece of foil that large to sit behind the DSP. Thrifty crafters will know exactly what I mean!)


I chose a cardstock base that blended beautifully with the scene. 

For the card above I used a Purple Posy and the card below I chose my favourite - that's right you guessed it - Seaside Spray!


I hope you have enjoyed looking at my project today! If you like my card I would really appreciate you taking the time to vote.  

To vote, please click the button below then scroll down Kylie's blog post until the gallery of cards appears. 

Make sure you have a good look at all of the cards - to get a better closer look simply click on the image of the card and you will be taken to the creators blog. 

You can place five votes so don't forget to use them all! All you have to do is click the heart in the top right hand corner on each card that you like.

The top ten winners will participate in a Blog Hop before the end of the month.

  2. Thanks for the tip on the foil. I just cut it and die cut something out of the center, then the punch out sits around gathering dust! I will use your method now. These are beautiful cards. I love that DSP and your design so you got my vote!
