Hi Everyone

If you are seeing this then Mr Blogger is behaving - if not then I'm in trouble as you all know I am away working at the moment :-/

Today I want to share with you a card I have made using some of the beautiful pre-coloured toppers from The Hobby House.  Have you tried them yet - if not, why not as they are a bargain at just a mere £1.75 for size pre-cut, pre-coloured toppers.  Trust me, the quality of these are just incredible that your friends and family will think you coloured them yourself ;)

Here is the full card:

Yay!  Another Christmas card made, but still a lot to go!

The recipe for the card is:

Paper:  Papermania - Home for Christmas
Topper:  Gingerbread Wishes
Roses:  Red Velvet - Large
Red Roses:  Die-namics - Mini Royal Roses
Leaves:  Memory Box - Holly Vine
Sentiment Stamp:  Whimsy - Holiday Mini Postage Stamps
Sentiment Die:  Whimsy - Mini Postage Stamp
Ribbon:  Contact The Hobby House for Details
Bells:  8mm Jingle Bells
Button:  The Hobby House Mixed Button Pack - Seasonal Mix
Rhinestones:  The Hobby House Self-Adhesive Rhinestones - Red

I have edged all the papers and roses with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink
I have edged the petals of the White Rose with Glossy Accents and dipped it in clear glitter

And that's it - thank you so much for stopping by.

See you soon.

A gorgeous card Hazel.
I've got plenty of these toppers and they are exactly as you described them, excellent quality and perfect for when I haven't got time to sit and colour an image myself.
Love your embellies (something I'm definitely not good at doing myself!)

Big hugs
