Looking forward to a grey Christmas......it's Humphrey!!!

Hiya Everyone,

I am very excited to share with you the fabulous new die cut decoupage that have been brought out by Crafters Companion. I was busy making samples yesterday that have just been collected for the pick of the week show on friday. This one is my favourite of the ones I was sent. It is a pop up card that I based on the design of the La Pashe Trinitage cards as the square tubes fold flat. This was my first attempt at this style of card - I would do it a bit different next time but you live and learn Lol.

I decided to keep the majority of the card plain so that the decoupage image stands out more. This reddy die cut decoupage is soooo easy which is fab for anyone who either cannot manage to cut out all the bits or those who simply don't have the time.

As I didn't have very long to make samples I had another shufty around in my bit boxes as I thought it would take me too long to decide on papers if I used the papers on the Humphrey CD so I can't remember where this blue and white check paper if from originally. I don't often use mirri card but thought it would look ok seeing as it was a Christmas card. The sentiment is printed using the font "Hogwarts wizard" as it's the only funky font my hubby has on his computer as my laptop is still on a go slow so I'm using his.

I have loads of other samples to show you but you'll have to wait till tomorrow!

I will enter this into the following challenges:-

Fab 'n' funky - Christmas
Freshly brewed - CAS/less than 3 embellishments
Kelley's kids - Babies
Pixie dust studio - Boys will be boys
