Merry & Bright and Just Because

Working my way through all the diecuts and stamped images I had left over from last Christmas. 

How easy was this little Christmas card, the white glitter paper is enough to decorate the front of a card and I used the 'Merry & Bright' diecut from Lil Inker stamps. Cuts so smoothly and looks great.

I only made a small Christmas card to go with it and that is in red cardstock. The panel behind was made from a tissue paper technique I learnt from Loll Thompson the link takes you to a video she made on this. Can you see the gold embossing on the crinkles -she taught that too . The card looks crooked here but its not - its my photography. 
One day I will have time to learn how to do this properly.

This card is a Stamping Bella stamp and I have coloured her with Copics. I cut down the panel with this sweet lace die from Gina Marie Designs Ohhh I do love their dies and such a good price too.

The Just Because diecut is a Kaisercraft but sadly is discontinued.
I decided to use another coloured cardbase so went mint and then lined inside with white.
