All Things Christmas

Before it's too late and the year is over, I am going to post a few of my Christmas projects from the last few weeks, as well as other bits and bobs.  Please be patient while I do this, the blog was neglected again, but that was so I could keep up with work and card orders. Hope you enjoy the selection of cards, there are some recognizable dies used and some a little different than my usual ones ;)

First up is my favourite Christmas card of 2014, and surprisingly it's not a stamped one! Yep it's decoupage and foiled as well, so just a bit of sparkle and not to OTT.
I love what the angel means at Christmas time and this image says it all.

This card is an easel shape, but with the fold at the short side of the card, making it a tall easel.

The decoupage isn't in the arched window shape, I used Go Kreate window dies for that.

Love this Sizzix embossing folder, but can't remember what it's called.

A memory box frosty border and scallop border die from spellbinders was used.

You can see the gorgeous foiled detail on the image from the photo above. And below, a close up of the embossing and the sentiment - stamp found on eBay

Here's a great example of the partial embossing and how effective and useful it is when you have a crisp embossed design.

If you like this angel image, it's a 2014 design from Craft Creations - I have used it a lot already and it's going to be a firm favourite in years to come!

It seems like everyone has been so sick with flu symptoms and bugs, so the frosty week we are having this week is good for killing those little nasties. I didn't escape it either this year, twice in 6 weeks and it seemed to last longer than ever - bleuh :( Anyway if you have been sick or are sick at the moment, hang in there xx

It's going to be a bright and shiny new year soon, too, and that means the days are getting shorter already and warm weather will be on the way, so snuggle up for just a while longer and hope we get through the rest of the winter with not too much bad weather.
