Christmas Cards 2015 - Part 3

Hello my blogging family and friends I do so hope you are well. I know for sure that it was strange going back to "Work stuff" today, I suspect I am not alone for those still working. I am preparing for my up and coming work trip to Dubai and have just put all my gear on the bed in our spare bedroom - it'll be a miracle getting it all in the suitcase - invariably it all does go in!!

A few more Christmas cards to show you today.

Card One
This first card is one I made using my new Heidi Swapp Minc machine.

I did share with you the YouTube site where Becca Feeken shows how to do this technique. It enables you to put a foiled edge to any of your dies.
If you missed it you can check it out on my December 28th 2015 posting>>> HERE.

In this card I used American Crafts white card stock and Kaisercraft Scarlet cardstock for the base. I used a Sue Wilson Noble square stitched die as well as her New York collection die. (Details listed below).

The stamp is from an image I found on the internet which I have had for ages and I coloured it with my Copics.

Card Two

As you can see there is a theme going on here! I used a Labels 22 Spellbinders die for the centre, then added some Sue Wilson dies for the Holly Leaves and Poinsettia. The sentiment stamp was from a set I got when I was in the States. I used American Crafts white card stock for the base, the background Christmas papers were a Magazine freebie 6 x 6 inch pad. The hessian/burlap was from Spotlight.

Card Three
A couple of variations with this style of card. Pearl if you are reading this post you will recognise the Simply Cards Magazine "Freebie" Dove - which I know you mentioned that you also have!

I used a Spellbinder Ironworks Accent die and the Circle Delight die, Sue Wilson's Merry Christmas Die and the Noble stitched square dies with the card base made from American Crafts card stock. It has a lovely weight for cards and goes far particularly if you get the 12 x 12 sheets.

Here is my last card for today and is a variation on the two above.

I used the Spellbinders curved border die and an Elizabeth Craft Design Merry Christmas die for this one. So simple yet so effective.

So here are the main ingredients that I used to make these cards:

Thanks for stopping by again today. I hope you liked this next selection of Christmas cards.
