Hearth & Home - Shut the Gate!

Quick share of another use for the Hearth & Home dies today. 

Plus another way of using the Woodland embossing folder too

And finishing with an alternative for the Christmas Greetings dies...
So firstly  - the Hearth & Home window shape... snippity snip and you have a gate - and gate posts too...

And secondly - emboss a Night of Navy card panel with Woodland embossing folder...
Stamp away Craft Whisper White stars and flakes ( from Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set) amongst the trees...

Daub the trees using Craft Whisper White and a finger dauber
All finished off with WISHING YOU from Holly Jolly Greetings... a black die-cut cat from Festive Fireside dies

And last but not least... JOY.... which is just a snipped JOLLY from the Christmas Greetings dies. Perfect fit for my little gate...
Right dashing off now... birthday girl here today! 


  1. oh goodness, how genius is that?!! :) Love it, esp. the cat on the fence!

    1. Lol... Probably the first time I have put a cat on a card... Loving it! Three this week!

  2. Not sure if I can last much longer without the window frame die! Love this card Amanda.

    1. Karen... Thx ...but... What do you mean!! Not got the hearth and home window die yet!!? Hush your mouth...! Don't wait too long....

  3. As I said on Saturday, absolutely fabulous.Same sentiments here Amanda - I haven't got the Festive Fireside, but if I buy much more from the Seasonal catalogue, I wil be not far off having everything featured in it!, Still - I am worth it aren't I?

    1. You are most definitely worth it Kate! Interestingly this card was in everyone's Top 3 on Saturday!
