I was telephoned – I think it was about July sometime – by a young man who had seen this blog and wanted a special Christmas Card making for his girlfriend.

Once I’d gotten over the shock of (a) a man actually ordering a special card and (b) him planning it incredibly early in the year, I came up with this Telescoping Card. I made another one first (to the specifications I was given – she likes angels, silver, green etc…..) but was not totally happy with it [see here] so started again!

I’ll never make a fortune at this hobby will I? Not if I keep making a spare one as well! 🙂

The card base was a purchased, tri-fold one to which I added some hand-made black-with-silver-dots paper to show through the aperture.

She likes butterflies as well! Not truly Christmassy but I thought I'd add a tiny one here. The hearts work well as telescoping elements - Spellbinders Nested Hearts (coloured while still in the die) backed with Scalloped Hearts.


I love this cute little angel stamp - so innocent! The wings are Fallen Angel by Spellbinders and there's a tiny xmas tree charm hanging between them.
