October Afternoon Pop 'n Cuts Christmas Card

Well it's been pretty busy lately, so not many cards to show you, but I did make this one today. It's pretty similar to one I made before, using the rest of some wonderful October Afternoon paper...
 I cut the inside card base with Karen Burniston's A2 Pop 'n Cuts Card with Circle label, and I just cut with a trimmer the outer red card base, and finished off the ends with Tim Holtz's Scallops On The Edge die. I also added some Tim Holtz tinsel, with Beacon's glue, and some snowflakes from my stash.
I then added a stamped sentiment (VersaMark ink + white embossing powder), and cut it out and added stitching effect with dies from the Circle and Labels, Stitched Framelit set.
 For the card front, I wanted space for writing a message, and used dies from the Wavy Labels Framelits set, and more October Afternoon paper.

Some of products used:



  1. This is PERFECT patterned paper for a Pop 'n Cut card! Love all the details. Great card, Helen!

  2. wow what a fun card, I agree with Karen that patterned paper is perfect for this card

  3. Helen: When I saw the first card you made using the October Afternoon Paper, I had to hunt it down on the internet like a hungry crafting dog! I finally got three of the designs including the one you used on the card above. That is how much I was inspired. It reminded me of Central Park in NYC and also some familiar city buildings. I am such a fan. Thank you!

    1. Thanks for your lovely comments Rosetta. This made me laugh - I totally know what you mean about hunting something down when you see a product you like... I'm exactly the same!!
