The Christmas Cards keeping coming :-)

I had a day at home to create a couple more Christmas cards to put in the mail yesterday.  Now I only have a handful of cards left to make for family here.  If I have forgotten anyone they will be getting a New Years Card.  I was given this wonderful laser cut frame from Blue Edge Crafts.  I traced around the edge and cut a gold piece of paper to go behind it.  Then I diecut a piece of green glitter card to place behind the holly leaves and added red sequins for the berries.  Finished with stickers from the Sticker Store. I really like the way the holly turned out on this card.



I started with the sticker for this card from Sticker Store.  Layered it on to some acetate and cut around the oval.  Decided to have a purple card with a black layer then used another of Blue Edge Crafts laser cut backgrounds.  I attached some black glitter card stock to the rear of the laser cut snowflakes.  Then finished the card with sticker stars. 

I really like this card.  The stockings are laser cut outs from Blue Edge Crafts which I trimmed with pearls and bling.  Then I used my Merry die cut for the first time ever and teamed it with a Christmas die from another set.

These clear glitter bauble stickers (Sticker Store) are so pretty.  I will have to play with them on some more cards.  I'm not entirely happy with the card so will have to keep trying. :-)


Happy Wednesday everyone.  I'm off to pull out some weeds from my Mums yard then we are heading to the Cairns Art Gallery to check out an exhibition which one of the art teachers from the local high school has some of his works displayed.
