a little play with some christmas goodies

I got a few crafting goodies for Christmas, including some stamps from Jo Capper-Sandon's range of stamps from Stampotique (available from Happy Daze), and some spellbinders dies.

I used the largest of a set of rectangle nestabilities to make this card, folding the resultant die cut in half. Then I used two of the stamps from Jo's heart cube, plus "mwah" and the kiss stamp that comes with it. I attached the ribbon using the immovable knot technique. perfect for this card as I can make sure it stays in place at the top of the hanging heart.

I have taken some extra pictures of this technique so you can really see how it works.

I am entering this for the stampotique die cuts challenge, which I am hoping is still open. (the challenge is actually a diecut and a punch - I used a die cut for the card, and a hole punch to make the hole for the immovable knot)


  1. Very effective!

    Clever use of the folded die cut and also the ribbon knot having the heart hanging from it too.

    Thank you for joining us on Stampotique Designers Challenge (yes, the challenge is open until the next theme on the 12th Jan)
