Merry Christmas & Stamplorations Cutaways

My first card is stamped and silver embossed on watercolour cardstock. Watercoloured with
Zigs and plenty of water. Very simple card to do.

Silver mirror cardstock for the die cut 'Merry Christmas'. I am loving the mew
dies I got from Stamplorations as you probably saw on my reindeer cards and my penguin cards
and now my next lot of cards as well. I sat in front of the TV and die cut to my hearts content silver, gold, pale pink metal look, bronze, white, black, glitter papers, anything and everything I could get my hands on. Then of course I had to untangle it all. They look wonderful

Remember all those cute little reindeer with the little Santa's helpers from Tiddy Inks I coloured during the colouring challenge.

Well they are all made into cards, cards that went off to the Caring Hearts
Card Drive. I grabbed a picture of each colour done to share here.

But when I decided to post I found the girl dressed in red was blurry so she isn't here
for you to see but hey the others are so you can just picture her. In her red dress.

Each with a different sentiment, most with Christmas mentioned but
some with just Best wishes or Joy.

Very easy cards to put together. Die cut the coloured image with the wonky stitched rectangle die. Then added a piece of Christmas type paper to the front of the card. Added the coloured image at a tilt  then the die cut word. Inside each card is an insert  with a stamped sentiment and a written comment wishing the recipient all the best.
