I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 20 and a daughter Emma aged 17. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 22 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Christmas Cards 2014

Well my plan of making one Christmas card per week has not gone well so far so today I made 4 cards to "catch up" using the same template but different colours and slight differences in layout.


I kept them quite simple and flat to save on the dreaded Royal Mail postage charges :(  Below are piccies of the individual cards.  All are stamped with Black Stayzon for sentiment and distressed with matching ink to the cardstock.  All have embossed backgrounds with different folders.






CARD SIZE:-
UK A6
STAMP:-
Sentimentals Stamps - Mistletoe Kisses from CRAFTERS COMPANION
CARD & INKS:-
Stayzon for Sentiment then Blushing Bride, Soft Sky, Garden Green & Cherry Cobler from STAMPIN UP
TOOLS:- 
Ebosser with oval and scallop oval nestie
Embossalicious folders from CRAFTERS COMPANION

  • Blue - Star of Wonder
  • Red - Let it Snow
  • Pink - Mistletoe Moments
  • Green - Holiday Holly

OTHERS:-
Gems from stash

These cards fit the following challenge:-

ABC Christmas - B for Bare Essentials
