The Christmas Box

Good Morning Bloggers!
It's time for me to share a La Pashe creation with you!
I was asked by a friend to make some cards, in a super quick hurry,
 suitable for posting with a regular stamp here in the UK & for posting overseas! 
Here's what I came up with!

We had a look through The Christmas Box CD Rom
and my friend chose the cute little Snowman element as the image for her cards.
I printed the image & sentiment onto one piece of card, matted & layered onto some 
festive coloured card & then added strip of  Washi Tape to embellish! 
This card is suitable for posting in the UK.

The second card is a one layer card, suitable for posting overseas, 
the idea being to keep the weight down.
The image was printed onto an A6 Linen embossed card blank & a
dotted line was added as a frame. Again, the only embellishment is
some Washi Tape! I just love the stuff.  
So simple but just what was called for in such a short space of time!
Now, this has given me a few ideas for my own overseas cards!
Thanks for popping in!

Just Married

Good Morning Peeps!
I hope everyone is well!
It's Thursday already which means it's time for a 

As you can see I have made a Wedding Card!
The image I have used is the beautiful Just Married
Just perfect for happy couples of any age I reckon!
I coloured it gently with my flexmarkers, cut with a round die, then 
inked whilst still in the die. You might notice this started off as a 
white on white card but colours started to creep in a little! 
The sentiment was printed out  in Marriage Script & treated in 
the same way. I added a script embossed panel which was lightly inked.
Some seam binding & a few little roses to finish of the embellishment.

Here's a closer look at the image & the flowers.
To me it looks like they're heading off into the sky!
There are more fantastic wedding images available here!

A little side view to let you see that I have decorated the inside too!

Over at Crafting For All Seasons, it't time for a new challenge!
Are you all Christmas'd out yet?
Just to ring the changes, our challenge theme is

Our sponsor  this time is Bugaboo 
who are offering one lucky winner -7 Images of their choice!
The image I have used is the lovely

I just had to use bright colours on it!
Of course I used my usual mix of  Flexmarkers & Promarkers.
I added some Glossy Accents to the balloons & Stella's glasses
but I'm not sure you can see that in the photo.
The layout was a sketch from a challenge blog, but I got a bit confused
with my dates so have well & truly missed that challenge!
The papers I have used are actually Christmas papers from Papermania
But, I think they suit this image very well!

As you can just about see, I have decorated the inside of the card too!
