Another Christmas Card

This is a very quick and easy card to make, the only time consuming thing was cutting out the wreath. I embossed the wreath using clear embossing powder and it really made it shine.  I then cut it out using my super sharp paper snips.  I thank ran some crumb cake through the Big Shot using the Pretty Print Embossing Folder.  I then stamped onto some Cherry Cobbler cardstock using one of the stamp from the Christmas Messages stamp set.  I then mounted the crumb cake onto a white card base and then used dimensionals to raise the wreath and the littlle robin to add dimension to the card.
I then stamped the greeting using another of the Christmas Messages stamp set at the bottom

I find that as I have to make so many cards for Christmas I like to find cards that look good but don't take forever to make.  I plan on making a few more this afternoon as it's such a miserable day here.

Enjoy your crafting

Festive Flurry

As promised, here are 2 different cards made using the same stamp set; Festive Flurry.  You can buy this as a stamp set or together with the Framelits dies as a bundle (if you buy them as a bundle you save 15%!)

On this card I stamped the snowflakes onto Night of Navy Cardstock using a versamark pad.  I then used the heat and stick powder and the stampin glitter to create the sparkle.  I then used silver embossing powder to emboss the greeting from the Christmas Messages stamp set.

For this card I stamped the snowflakes using different colours and then cut them out using the framelit dies, it makes life so much quicker!  I then added glitter to the middle section (it's Christmas, therefore you must have glitter). I mounted it onto silver card and then onto a white background.

It just shows you how versatile one set can be!

You can order any of the supplies I have used on these projects (serial numbers listed below) from my online shop and have them delivered directly to your door, just use the "shop now" button on my blog.  Then you can come back on her and show me what you've created!
