This month's fave

As promised on my last message here's the card I made using my favourite template from Leo's November Crafty Template set

I cut a regular C6 card down to 14cms wide so that I could take the poinsettia right off the top edge and then use a 15cm sq envelope for posting.
It was so easy to put together, and is such a stunning design that it really doesn't need much embellishment. I've added is a length of red ribbon and a bow to fill the emputy corner of the card, a few yellow beads for the centre of the flower and a bit of gold Stickles to highlight the edges.

I'm going to try this one out in some other colours too as I think it's a flower that will work really well on non-Christmas projects too.

You can find out all about Crafty Templates HERE, along with info about this month's Gooyes Kit which takes the form of downloadable stash - so you don't need to wait for the postie at all this month!

Another really quick message today, hopefully back to normal soon!
Thanks for popping by

Hi Kathy. Can I ask if your cards need large letter postage with having the beads etc on? I have been having trouble with embellishments not being able to use an ordinary stamp. A x

Hi Kathy. Love all the cards you've been creating with the templates. The cup cake looks good enough to eat and your poinsetta is stunning, almost real.
Your Christmas cards are all amazing. I am so envious, I'm finding them a real struggle this year.
