My 4th “The Dragons Den” Posting for the Monday “Pick of the Week” Slot (14)

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog.
Design Team Card


Time certainly does fly when you are having fun, and it’s already three weeks since my last post for The Dragon’s Den blog. Today a new post went live on the blog with a card I’d made showcasing another great digi-stamp. You can see the post – Here!

Stamping Dragon Designs Item:

Hippo Christmas digital stamp




After printing out the image I coloured it in using my markers and then put some wet glue on the white hat edge and pompom.  I then put white glitter flocking on this.  I used a circle scissors to cut out the digi and a mat to put behind it.

I also used my circle scissors to cut a series of pink and red circles from some satin board, folded them in half and stuck them together using quick grab wet glue.  I then went over the join laying down a band of red glitter glue.
The base card was made by scoring two sheets of satin board at the half way point.  One was cut along the score line and the other was scored again from front corner to corner.  I used finger-lift tape to attach the half sheet inside the other card, and the one scored diagonally was cut in half along the score line to give a half front card, to which lace was attached along the cut line using ultra tacky tape and the digi-stamp on its circular mat.

The card was further decorated with die cut holly leaves and silver peel-offs from my crafting stash.

So there you have it – one “1st Christmas” card – I hope you like it.
