Pootlers team YouTube hop


Todays project was designed especially for the Pootlers team YouTube hop. I have a video over there showing a step by step tutorial on this card. I really enjoyed playing and creating with the stunning new Carols of christmas bundle which you are able to purchase on pre release from today.

The aim of the hop is to inspire you all showing a range of ideas for this set. Its widely versatile as all the projects will show. You can follow the hop by clicking on the links to the other ladies in the hop via the list in my description box on my video.

I chose to create a simple easel card and in alternative colours to regular Christmas cards.... powder pink one of our new in colours. I created a layered 3d effect with the tree dies from the set, used the night time sky die and the decorative card front border die which although detailed cuts beautifully o give a stunning border to any card.

I stood up the easel part by layering Whisper white and Powder pink card up on dimensionals. Adding the sentiment over also on dimensionals further helps the easel card stand up. Silver embossing on the sentiment set against the white and pink paired with silver for paper deers cut from the die set really does make the whole project pop.
