Woodware challenge - White Christmas

I don't think my photo does this card justice! In the flesh it looks very pretty.
I've stamped and used white embossing powder the background words from
Woodware stamp JGS 353 Festive Verse onto white linen card.
I've made a triangle shape from plain white card. Stuck a tree trunk onto it and then rummaged through my ribbon and gems boxes for all things white to stick across the shape.
All the products used here are from Woodware.
The card is 148mm square.

Woodware challenge - Traditional Christmas

For todays card I've used Woodware stamp JGS189 Sprig of Holly.
Stamp and clear emboss the image onto red, green and yellow card and cut each section out.
The scallop and plain circles are die cut and are about 41/4" wide. I've cut the plain circle with deckle scissors to make it looked smaller so you can see more of the scallop circle!
The greeting is from Woodware stamp JGS353 Festive Verse.

Woodware challenge - Christmas decoration

I had planed to show you a lovely glass bauble I had decorated with permanent pens, liquid pearls and punched snowflakes but then I dropped it while taking the photo! It was really pretty.

So instead I made a punched paper bauble.

The finished bauble, its about 4" across.
Using the new Woodware crafty Edger and
cassette that comes with it.
Punch four strips from a 12" piece of scrapbook card.
Cut four 1cm wide strips of the same card.
I cut extra just in case!
Punch a snowflake from same card.
Mark the centre or each strip and make a hole.
Push the brad through the snowflake and make a cross
with the strips, pushing the brad through the holes.
Add the other strips, alternating the punched and plain.
When you turn it over you see the snowflake and brad.
The inside of the bauble showing the secured brad.
Bring up the other ends, overlap and stick with PVA glue. 
All the ends are now stuck to form the bauble shape.
You can always stick another snowflake over this end.
The top of the bauble.
Add some cord to hang the bauble, I wrapped mine under
the brad and wound it round a couple of time.s
Decorate with more punched snowflakes around the bauble.
