Xmas cards

Don't you just love thinking about Christmas this early? LOL.  As you can see I'm kind of hooked on using blues at the moment.  The image is a Sherri Baldy digi available from http://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/156596356/instant-download-digital-digi-stamps-big?ref=shop_home_active  .  I have used an 8x8 card blank, then layered with Creata silver mirror card and centura pearl card with a hint of silver.  On top of that is more mirror card ant then some more centura that has been embossed with the 'swiss dots' embossing folder. The sentiment is from Lindsay Mason Designs, sold through Personal Impressions stockists.  I have then used a spellbinders holly die along with a swirl die to embellish.  Flat backed pearls and diamond stickles are also used.

The second card again uses an 8x8 blank card, onto that is added layers of centura pearl card stock along with some art deco papers from Creata http://www.createandcraft.tv/Creata_4_Deco_Packs_of_Craft_Paper_238133.aspx?fh_location=//createandcraft/en_GB/$s=creata  also Creata glittered paper. The greeting is a die cuts with a view sticker.  Two embossing folders have been used on the centura card for extra dimension, again swiss dots and snowflakes. Snowflake border cutting files are available through   http://www.creataonline.com/.  To embellish the card I have gathered some white lace along the bottom, added some clear dew drops and a few pearls which were from Wild Orchid crafts.
