Christmas card Number 5

Good afternoon crafter's hope you are all well on this wonderfully not wet afternoon (in Preston that is). Another Christmas card for you to see today.

This has been made for a friend of mine but I have also made one nearly the same for my mum and dad so I hope they like it.

The card is an 8" X 8" card.

For the image I used my favourite Santa stamp.  I'm sorry I can't tell you who the stamp is made by as I can't remember where I got it from.

The background card was one of hunkydorys from there Christmas collection.

 I have used marianne dies to cut the snowflakes out of white and silver card, I then topped them with mother of pearl sequins.  I must admit I have used a lot of these this year as I do like to add them on my cards.

The sentiment was printed using my computer.

To make the white poinsettia's I used one of my old dies from quickcutz.

The Bling Appeal

I used sequins, peeloffs, blue jems, card candi and stickles to add the bling that I love on my cards.

Thank you so much for taking the time to view my blog, I know we are all very busy people especially with the run up to Christmas. I hope you like this card as much as I do,  I think this is one of my favourites for this year.

Christmas Cards 2012 - Number4

Well better late than never here is number 4.  This card is not as big a card as the others I have shown you so far but sometimes I think you can make some really cute cards which are smaller.

To make this side easel card I used a sheet of Hunkdory snowflake card and some paper /i stamped with pink /purple snowflakes.

The Sentiment was produced using my computer and then using a spellbinder die.

The Bling Appeal - I used Gems, Beads, Silver Snowflake confetti, silver card candi and peeloffs.

Thanks for taking the time to take a look.

Christmas Cards 2012 - Card Number 3

Good evening crafters hope you all well.  Well as promised below is another commissioned card that I have just made for a friend.

I used a Hunkydory piece of Gold embossed card for the background.

I used gold and white glitter to make the glitter image which has then been matted onto gold card.

The Snowflakes were made using mariannes designs snowflakes dies which have been cut out of gold and white card.  To finish the centre of the snowflakes I have stuck on mother of pearl sequins.
The sentiment has been printed using my computer.

Thank you for taking the time to take a look at my card, I hope you like it.  Please don't forget to take a look tomorrow as I will be posting another card tomorrow.
