The Fifth Day!

This is one for those of you who haven't even starting making their cards yet! It's my famous No Cutting Card, in it's Christmas garb! See this post for an explanation!
I've used 'Bouquet' Jumbo wheel on a piece of Kraft cardstock, cut to the size of my cardfront. If you wanted to make a whole batch of these, you would leave your sheet A4 size, and cut it in quarters after you had stamped. I love the Bouquet wheel. I can use it all year round as a florally background, and then colour it green and red, and viola it's a Christmas wheel!
I've used my Aquapainter and a couple of drops of re-inker onto my inkpad lid for a good depth of colour. I've added some highlights with the White Gel Pen (I can't tell you how many of these I go through... I use them all the time!)
The rest of the card is really easy. I've used Always Artichoke as my card base. Just tear off part of the front, and attach your Kraft piece behind the tear. It all looks nice and neat on the inside too. Liz has taken it a step further in this post on her blog, by using the torn-off piece too. Clever!
I've stamped Season's Greetings (from 'Many Merry Messages') in Whisper White ink, and coloured a couple of extra leaves and berries, and stuck them on with the 2-way glue pen as a simple little embellishment.


  1. I'm just lovin' these days of Christmas! Such a wonderful idea, Marelle... and quite an undertaking for you to have one posted each day! You're a marvel!

  2. Your 'no cutting card' is such a great idea Marelle. Love how you used it here. Who knew that the bouquet roller would look so good for Christmas?...thanks for sharing.

  3. Hi Marell,
    Lovely Card!
