Christmas 2013

Don't look now but Christmas is not far away!  In fact, from all accounts we're only talking about just two months or so.  So high time for me to start making my Christmas cards.  So over the next few days, I would like to share some of my cards that are going to feature in my 2013 collection!

I've made a few of these cards, as they're really simple but classic and beautiful.  Going outside of my comfort zone (for Christmas that is), I've used Coastal Cabana, Whisper White and silver.  Very elegant!

I've cut out ornaments using my Ornament Keepsakes framelits which are still available from last year's Christmas catalogue.  I've pierced all around using my piercing tool and my own spacing.  I've added silver ribbon from the latest Holiday Catalogue and added DSP to the background for contrast.  A gem or two, Merry Christmas stamped and embossed in silver ..... well it makes for a lovely card.  Any colour combination would work with this design too!

To make this card I used the following SU supplies:

Stamps: Greetings of the Season
Papers: Coastal Cabana & Whisper White CS and Winter Frost DSP Paper Stack
Inks: VersaMark
Accessories: Big Shot & Ornament framelits, silver embossing powder and heat gun, Silver 1/8" ribbon & gems.
