Even though we don't have snow at Christmas, we still love to do our Christmas cards with snowflakes. I coloured matt card with Kaleidacolor blue breeze, stamped and embossed my snowflakes and added a Christmas tree in the corner. I used a rub on for the sentiment and highlighted the card with crystal glitter glue, so it sparkles.

This is an Impression Obsession image and I love it! The background was done with Kaleidacolor stamp pad in Blue Breeze and then I sandpapered over the cuttlebug embossing to give it the white highlights, very easy and I find it prevents the white ink down in the ditch look.

Christmas Card made in a hurray along with four that look much the same, thought I had two weekends to go before Christmas but no, only one. It is very simple, Christmas paper put through the cuttlebug, spellbinder pendent die cut, cut out stamped image, added glitter highlights and my new distress stickles on the leaves.

I made this so long ago, cannot remember what ink I used on the background, have a feeling it was alcohol inks and then I cuttlebugged it, a ribbon to give it a lift, an embossed sentiment and the stars to make it pop... it is on it's way to Nelson today.

I love distress inks, they are easy to work with and after watching Tim Holtz yesterday on youtube making a tag I came home and made this card. Lots of different stamping on top, plus embossing the snowflakes and then highlighting with glitter, easy but effective.

This is my first Christmas Card sent, it is at this very time on its to Dubai, where my niece Sharyn and her husband live with their two children. I used matt cardstock, sprayed with memories mists in three different blues, then ran a Brilliance stamppad in white over the top, a ribbon and a sentiment and the card was done.

I belong to a group called NZ Stampers and a group of us met in Levin at Yvonne's shop for a day of crafting. We all put in for a secret santa and I picked out Jinny's offering and what a masterpiece, I so love it and it now hangs proudly in the hallway.
