Christmas Is Coming

Yes, it's THAT time again! Time for all good cardmaking peeps to start their Christmas cards!

Today is my first Christmas Card Stamp-a-Stack class and I have been busy making a whole host of designs to choose from. The two cards we are making today are very different to each other but both are simple and fun to make.

Firstly, a classic and elegant card using the beautiful Snow Swirled set in soft suede and very vanilla. The background is dry embossed and adhesive pearls have been added to the tree for that extra little touch.

The second card is a cute little number featuring some little snowmen from Window Dressing, a level 2 hostess set. Once again I've used Snow Swirled, this time the snowflakes in the background, and the sentiment is a non-SU set. Some puff paint snow adds a touch of whimsy!

Well, I'd best go hunt out some Xmas carols to play in the background at class! Ta ta!

Kerry - I have to say that I love Snow Swirled. These cards are gorgeous. Different, one very elegant and one lots of fun. TFS.

Beautiful cards. I love the snow and the white craft ink around the edges makes it seem like a winter christmas. Love both cards.

Two magical Chrissy cards Kez. Love them both to bits!!! (esp the Suede one). The dry embossing lifts the 1st card to another level. Just beautiful!! ooxx
