Good morning all!!

I hope you are all well and feeling uplifted ready for Christmas! I want to apologise for not being as active on my blog as usual, with Christmas just around the corner there is so much to do as you all probably know. My blog will be back to normal after Christmas.

The style of card I've used this week I thought went very well with this beautiful image. It's called a "Bow front card" and you can find the tutorial on this site: Bow Front card Tutorial. The card is basically an A4 Gate fold card , cutting an aperture out and placing acetate underneath the the front of the card then creating some holes at the top and bottom and tying together using ribbon or lace.

The materials I used are:

Hunkydory card stock for base of card A4
Heavyweight acetate from create and craft
Blue organza ribbon and burgundy lace from EBay.
Aperture die cut done using an XCut die
Digi stamp from Eureka stamps coloured with Pro Markers
Matting and laying inside the card cut using X cut punch around the edges.
Gold peel offs, sentiment, organza flowers, and die cut rose buds from my stash.
