    Love those, EM

    Your cards are beautiful! Very effective. Did you use PVA to stick the fabric on?

    Hi I've been asked to make some christms cards for a local Stroke charity for them to sell. I'm hoping to make at least 50 hopefully 100 but I'm providing all the materials myself so need to keep the costs down.
    I wondered if anyone had any ideas of a simple design that would be good enough to sell.I have a big shot & xmas cuttlebug embossing folders & a cricut machine with various carts as well as various xmas stamps but just dont know where to start! It's got to be simple & cheap but appealing too.
    Anyone got any ideas? Thanks!! Julia x

    Julia ... I would literally put one embellishment on (perhaps on a nested die/punched die), and then stamp Merry christmas underneath it.... voila ! quick and simple !

    Yes I used fabric glue that I bought for about £4.50 in John Lewis, but I bought another tube yesterday from Dunelm Mill for 99p and it is just as good!

    What a lovely idea, button baubles!
    Julia, do you have any packs of Christmas die cuts or stickers? If you do, you could just put a coloured square or paper on your card, top with a die cut or sticker and finish with Merry Christmas stamped underneath maybe?

    Hello Scrap. that's a very worthy cause you're taking on. I would take a biggish stamp but leave enough edge to fake one or two borders round it to keep costs down, using stamp ink to make stripes round it, and maybe a roll of wrapping paper for backing???? Don't know if any of those ideas are of any use to you. Good luck. Kiaya

    First time uploading

    I hope this works, new to uploading here. I haven't been card-making long, just one year, and adore my new Craft Robo, but here I am just working with a lovely stamp in black and silver. One has a silver cake ribbon on black card and the other just a narrow ribbon. Isn't tying bows hard???
    Is there anywhere here I can talk to other Craft Robo users?

    Thanks Sharen, hadn't spotted it at the bottom of the page. Won't let me look at stuff yet as I don't have 10 posts to my name - yet! Kiaya

    I have moved this in case I shouldn't have posted the photo here since it included a CR template. I used my favourite stamp again with a frame by Silene whhich is beautiful. You can see it in my gallery instead, sorry.
