Romany Christmas : Christmas Pudding

0 11 Comments

Today’s card has been made using Romany Christmas cd by Crafter’s Companions.

I haven’t made many Christmas cards this year but I feel that it is time.

You will need:

8″ by 8″ Cream Card
Romany Christmas Cd-Rom
Gold Mirri Card
Cream Card
Sentiment Die
Double Sided Tape
Foam Pads
Wet Glue


Print off a topper sheet and two papers from the cd. Cut out all elements from the topper sheet.

Next cut all the matts and layers out using the below measurements.

Matt and layer measurements:

  • 1st Layer : Gold mirri card 20 cms by 20 cms, paper 19.5 cms by 19.5 cms
  • 2nd Layer : Gold mirri 20 cms by 8 cms, paper 19.5 cms by 7.5 cms
  • 3rd Layer : Gold mirri 14 cms by 14 cms, this is your topper’s matt.

I have used double sided tape to attach these matts and layers together.

When cutting a matt for your topper it is always best to cut your matt layer 0.5 cms larger than your topper. This way you have a nice sized border.

At the end of making this card I decided to print out the topper sheet again so I could have an few extra Christmas puddings to add to my design.
When adding these I used foam pads to give some dimension to my design.

The sentiment that I used is from a new set of dies that Creative Crafting World is launching on the 12th July.

CD Sunday Challenge : Things to eat

Crafting With An Attitude Challenge 41 : Always Anything Goes
