Someone Special Birthday upstand

A very dear friend of mine has her birthday in November and I think she will like this.  I have again used centura pearl 300 gsm card.  I cut it all in white and lightly chalked the overlay mat and the flowers on the upstand.  Some of my favourite beads just finish it off nicely.  The template is on UKS as usual.

Basic Christmas upstands

These are variations on a theme - basically snowflakes.  The top two were cut from centura pearl 300 gsm card and the blue one is adorable scorable.  It's quite surprising how well these cut, although I do use a double cut.  The files as always are freely shared on the UKS site

Christmas Upstand

Following on from the birthday upstand, this is my Christmas one,  I have cut this in Centura Pearl 300gsm and it cut well (I used a double cut with the blade set on 5 and thickness 33) - my blade is probably not as sharp as it was as I have been using it a long time.  I've decorated the mat with beads, and also the upstand.  It will be quite flat for posting and you can get two base cards out of one sheet of A4 so it is quite economical!
