Last of The Christmas Cards

That's it for another year I really will try to start earlier as it has been quite stressful getting all the cards finished! Before we know it it will be Mother's Day!

Everything on this first card has been recycled - the lovely purple card started life as file dividers which were going to be thrown away at work. The ribbons were cut from clothing and the big silver snowflake was pulled from one of last year's cards.

I cut the baubles using two small nestie circles and embossed two of then with dots and swirls - to highlight the embossing I've coloured them with silver paint - very effective. I love the challenge of making cards like this from nothing.

This second card was actually a nightmare to make - it took ages to thread the ribbon through the holes in the Nellies die. The image is once again Ice Pop - the cutest snowman on the block. It's hard to see on the pic but the background is embossed withthe swiss dot embossing folder.

I love this final card - it's so touchy feely. The tree is made from a long triangle of card with grooves cut up each side then wound with fluffy wool. The baubles are big pink diamantes and it's finished off with a silver star and a ribbed silver pot. Very girly.

I'm now looking forward to making normal cards again!
