Fleur De Lis...

I think I may have broken my own record....for the number of photos posted in one go!! So settle yourself in and make yourself comfortable lol.

The inspiration for all of these little creations was my new Sizzix Bigz Fleur De Lis die.

I first stamped a kinda toile design on to some light grey card...I'm not sure who makes this stamp but I do know that Stampin Up have a very similar design.

The envelope was made using a template by Pricillastyles...I've used this template before on my blog...I really love it....this time I made sure I took a photo of the envelope at an angle so that you can see the dimension.

Then I started to make some cards using my Fleur De Lis die....what a fab centrepiece for a card...

I kept the negative of the die cuts to make another couple of cards...

Here is another..., pictured with my gorgeous Hobbycraft ribbon...

The next card was made using my new E K Success Fleur De Lis punch...much smaller in size but no less beautiful...

The next photo shows a picture of the punch, and also the word stamp I used to create my background, which is by Whisper.

Finally, I made a box to complete my project...

Phew, if you made it to the end of this post, I thank you for hanging on in there! I really enjoyed making these little creations...they really were a labour of love, and I hope you like them.

Well, I never did make it to the Christmas do last night...it was cancelled due to bad weather, so we will celebrate in the New Year instead!

Right, I'm off to wrap some pressies...but first I will be visiting you to see what you are up to!
