Day 4, and the final day sharing my Christmas makes for this year.

And beginning with some plain White Card Bases, a selection of printed sentiments & a large pile of various die-cut, punched & purchased snowflakes, these 2 cards were my favourites of the many Snowflake-themed cards I made this year : )

Finished with just a touch of sparkle : )

A French Country Christmas

Day 3 sharing my Christmas makes for this year : )

And to make these two Cards, I've layered papers from The French Country Christmas Collection with sentiments from the new 'Happy Noel' Sentiments.

There are some new additions in The French Country Christmas Collection. They are not brand new designs. They are designs that have only been available in The Colour Collection Colour Palette up to now. And not in The French Country Colour Palette.

And vice-versa. There are also a few designs which had been available in The French Country Colour Palette which had never been included in The Colour Collection Colour Palette.

This means that every design that is currently available in The Colour Collection is now available in The French Country Collection too. And in the respective Christmas Collections as well. The designs in the two Colour Palettes are the same now : )

& The French Country Christmas Papers Collection *here*.

Happy & Merry Sentiments

Day 2 sharing my Christmas makes for this year : )

And as you will see over the next few days, my cards this year have been very tactile designs - combining different textures, with lots of depth & a little bit of Christmas sparkle. All made using a mix of hand-made and purchased card toppers.

I've made quite a lot of this design. It was simple to produce in quantity, like a mini production line! And I loved it's all-neutral tones.

To make it, I printed my Sentiment onto an ever-so-slightly-textured paper from Paperchase & mounted it onto an A6 Card Base. I then layered a die-cut Star cut from silver glitter card & a translucent die-cut Snowflake cut from vellum to create a background for my feature embellishment - a purchased wooden Stag - tying a silver metal bell around the antlers with cream crochet cotton.

I then finished my card with a selection of sequins & crystals, also in neutral tones. And a metallic gold envelope to highlight the colour of the feature Stag.
