Blue Baubles

Good afternoon everyone
For today's card I have used papers from First Edition's 'Silent Night' pad.
I've die cut the baubles from the same pad using Spellbinder's '2012 Heirloom
ornaments dies and added pearl flourishes to each one.
I've made the Poinsettia from white Foamiran and
coloured it with 'Faded Jeans' distress ink.
I've added a chipboard sentiment to add more texture.

Monochrome Santa

Hi everyone
Today I'm sharing a monochrome card with you.
I love black and white together and so I chose Gingham card
for the background. I chose this  lovely vintage Santa
stamp by Habico, (this has got to be my favourite Santa ever)
and stamped him onto white card with Memento ink.
I've made the flowers from 300gsm black and white card using
a Memory Box Poinsettia die.
Foliage is Lea'bilities 'Holly Leaves and Pine Branches' die.

Christmas Tree

Hi everyone
For todays card I have used papers from First Edition 'Christmas Promise' pad.
I've made the Christmas tree by firstly cutting a triangle shape from 300gsm card
then layering small pieces of hessian on it that I've soaked in Anna Marie Designs 'Structuriser'.
When it's dry it will be hard so it acts like a starch.
I've covered the tree in voile, and added pearls that I've cut from a
pearl garland. The wooden star I've covered in Inka Gold 'Silver' and
then Sparkle Medium 'Silver' for a bit of glitter.
 I've made the base from corrugated card and also added 
ribbon and lace. The MDF sentiment is also from Anna Marie
Designs and I've covered the tops with Snow-Tex.

For the focal centre piece I have used a wooden wreath and added frosted
