Holiday Hoopla Ornaments


Kate Hadfield Designs has a Subscriber area the Doodle Den where members get access to loads of extra freebies. By subscribing to the newsletter you get a code that gives you VIP access to this area.

This card has been made using 4 of the fabulous pre-coloured Doodles from this amazing freebie set Holiday Hoopla, just perfect for your Christmas makes.

I particularly wanted to make a card in non-traditional Christmas colours as this is something I very rarely do.

I chose 3 of the ornaments from this set as they are perfect for this very reason. I placed them in a way that allowed me to make a long and thin centrepiece to suit an A5 card. I used the long hanger with the bow for the centre bauble and simply drew lines with a very thin marker for the other 2.

The image has a sentimeng that has been added to it by simply typing the words before printing onto matte photo paper. This makes the colours more vibrant than using 

The image is matted onto a dark teal shimmer card. The zig zag paper is from Craftwork Cards and is the perfect compliment in the pink and teal and matches the base cardstock which is Adorable Scorable from Hunky Dory. I do love the thickness of this card for large cards as it is so strong and comes in lots of colours.

I added some silver ribbon and highlighted the circles in the baubles with some self adhesive gems from Kanban.

At Kate Hadfield Designs there are so many fabulous sets it is really easy to get inspired to use them. There are digital stamps which you can colour, coloured versions you can scrapbook or make into digital layouts. Papers, patterned overlays and doodles galore. No matter what your skill level there are so many goodies to play with.
