Oh what a lovely feeling being able to add Christmas cards in the box. I'm not thinking about sending them as my daughter took all the ones I made last year into her office and sold them all so I'm doing that again this year. I am trying not to put too many layers on them though as postage is so expensive if you go over the normal rate, and that's bad enough.
The first card I have this morning is for the Christmas Card Club. The theme - only words - no images - was chosen by Dawn and she made life very easy for me as the die cut was one of the ones that I recently purchased on ebay. Woopdedoo it was a dream come true!
Bottom die - from Susie Sugar ages n ages ago
Front die - Vintage Noel by Tim Holtz
Pearls - The Hobby House
Glitter - Star Dust Stickles
My second card is for Sunday with Santa on Facebook and the theme for this one is Birds. I rooted around in the pile of Christmas cards we received last year and found one with these cute little robins. A few crafty products have been dropping through the letter box recently and I've used some of them here ... but don't tell Mr C!
Image & Ribbon - recycled
Flower - candy I won from Debby (A Scrapjourney)
Sentiment - from Signature Christmas collection by Clearly Besotted
Die - Frames #8 by Crafts Too
Embossing - Swiss Dots by Cuttlebug
I always put inserts in my cards which is one of the jobs I hate so I've made a decision that I'm doing them as I go along this year ... how sensible is that! This is the insert I'm going to use for Christmas.
