A few Christmas Cards

A quick share in my lunch break of some really quick and easy Christmas cards I made the other evening. Not had a lot of time to make very much for sharing this week as I am working flat out on samples for a new Stamp Addicts programme on Create and Craft later this month.......all top secret at the moment but I will share with you as soon as I can.......really exciting stuff this time and some really yummy products and techniques........but that's as much as I can say right now.

All of the cards are made using my K & Co Winter Wonderland 12x12 pad - these ones really are so 'strokeable' with lots of glitter and foiling which unfortunately do not show up too well on my pictures.

The layout is very similar to the white on white card I did for this week Penny Black challenge and thought I would try it out with some colour and really quite like to finished article.

The square and circle panels have all been run through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder and cut with Nesties and the flowers which I hope look a bit like Christmas roses have been made with various punches. The swirly branch has been cut on Cricut Joys of the Season and the sentiments are a variety of different stamps.
