Merry & Bright

Hi everyone,

Here are a couple more Christmas cards to add to the growing collection:

The Holly Wreath is made from a diecut doughnut shape using nesties circles with Joanna Sheen's Signature dies for the leaves including the ivy flourish which I snipped pieces off before adding for a bit more dimension.  The starburst-type decorations on the second one are also from a signature die and are intended as stamens for flowers but I thought they made nice tree decorations with a gem centre (they look really nice cut in mirri card).  The sentiment on each card is printed straight on to the A5 card blank from the computer.  The embossed tree is a cuttlebug embossing folder.

I am getting quite a collection of Christmas cards now but still have all the inserts to do (don't know why but I always leave this job until the last minute, probably because that is the boring bit).  Do you make yours as you go along?  I really should make the effort!

Have a great weekend, happy crafting!

  6. I am loving these cards, gorgeous colours. With inserts...I tend to make a stack of them with wording and images and even double sided tape attached.

  7. A super pair of CAS Christmas cards - have to confess, don't always do them! Usually I do big square cards, so just do a die cut shape with a printed sentiment inside.

  8. Fab cards, great to see you so well on with the Christmas cards! I've been making them for over a month now, but still have loads to make. Hope you are having a good weekend. Maddy x

  9. What a fab use of die cuts! You are way ahead of me-havent even started yet ;-)
