I've started my Christmas cards!

At last!
Every year, I say I will start making my christmas cards in half term
(late Oct, and I always start them in December!) but I really have this yr!
 Infact, half term is next week and I have made 7 now...all different!

 I got some new stamps recently...
like tapestry stamps, or morsel stamps.
It took a few goes, but after a bit of practice, I worked out this wreath made of snowflakes.
I added stickles to the centre of each flake
and embossed the edges of the card.
Stamped sentiment in the middle...I forgot I had this stamp!!!
It's so much nicer in real life!

 I'm not sure what this flower is, but thought it quite christmassy,
 with the wreath of twigs and a gold gem in the centre of each flower.
I embossed the edge again.

 This is my mistletoe wreath.
Stamped and glittered with stickles.
Computer generated sentiment inside the wreath.

This final one is my holly wreath.
Its hard to see, but I have dotted each berry with a red glittery pen
and added some tiny gold gems onto some of the wreath twigs.
Stamped sentiment.
Embossed round the edge.
Thanks for looking...
