3D Paper Tole Christmas Cards

Hi everyone, yes I have been missing in action again.  My daughter has been childminding over her school holidays, today is the last day.  It has meant an early start for both of us getting out of the house before 8am.  Then when I return home I am doing things around the house and not getting in here to post.  Today, I am changing my routine. :-)  A chilly start we have had to the day too.  It was 9C when I left home but when I returned 1/2 hour later it had warmed to 15C.  The days are beautiful skies and sunshine.

Today I thought I would share the remainder of the 3D Paper Tole cards I have made up to send off to Tracey Hanshaw who collects handmade cards for Aussie Troops serving overseas.  So they can then send them back home to their family and friends at Christmas time.  Details are here.

All the 3D Paper Toles and base cards have come from Blue Edge Crafts and stickers are from Sticker Store.  The background of these blue birds I have used my Swiss Dots embossing folder and sprayed on some gold smooch which does look much nicer and glimmery in real life.

I just love these laser cut cards from Blue Edge Crafts.....such fin detail.  Behind the grid I attached some gold flecked fabric that I have had for ages.  You can see it better in the photo below.

 I must admit I do like my traditional colours for Christmas.  I have used my Victoria embossing folder here on green Linen Textured cardstock.  The sentiment was from a magazine giveaway.

I have used my Herringbone embossing folder for this card and a rub on sentiment.

 This paper tole I have had cut out for ages and never could find the right background or colours for it.  I persisted though and really like the end result.  This embossing folder actually has a frame in the centre which I have covered with the paper tole topper. I am not sure of the embossing folder name but it is new for me and sure to be a favourite.  I like the framed edge of it.  The sentiment is a rub on.

Well I hope your day is beautiful where ever you are.  Thanks for visiting and I hope to catch up with you tomorrow.
