Christmas Cards Again

Sorry for the poor photos today, the light is very bad again. I'm back to making Christmas cards once more! Thankfully, only a few more to go and I will have made the number I need. I'm back to my favourite colour, blue, and have used Daisy Ds paper and stamps from Creative Expressions. I used sparkly embossing powder 'Disco Black' from Stamp 'n' Stuff and a glitter Sakura pen in blue to colour in. The stamped images are 3D which doesn't really show on the photo.
These stamps are made to be used with Nestabilities circle dies, but although I love the small scallop circles in the range, I cannot justify the cost at the moment. I have a circle cutter and swivel knife which just has to do instead!
I was inspired by Kaz on her blog 'Slightly Wonky Crafts' to try white embossing on purple patterned paper.

Here I used Graphicus and Papermania stamps and detail white embossing powder.
But I only made two purple Christmas cards as I prefer the black embossing. It's more dramatic I think.
Each to his (or her) own.


  1. These are beautiful cards ...not sure which I like best.

  2. Beautiful cards ... my favourite colour is purple ... but at Christmas I am always drawn to blue and white too!
