Christmas cards - embossed border, layered snowflakes and some bling

A friend called me tonight wondering if it might be possible to get a few Christmas card kits because she was short five!!  Being in the process of getting kits made up for my class I went looking for a few extra supplies and assured her I could get five kits made up for her.  I used what I had on my desk and made up some new snowflake embellishments which were a bit quicker than the ones I have planned for later.  I used a silver brad, added a blue sequin, a white snowflake punchie (MS) then a larger blue snowflake punch (MS) to finish off my 3D embellishment.  In my snowflake stash I found some of the smaller snowflakes which were just the right size to offset the larger one. I did not have enough for the five kits so I die cut a few extra.  I added bling to their centers and used my clear glitter gel pen to highlight the arms.  The blue layer was embossed with the swirl embossing folder and then it was adhered to a white card front.  The oval was die cut from colour printed decorative paper (Nestibilities) and adhered in the center of the embossed design.  I mounted the large snowflake element using double sided tape and then used 3D foam tape to adhere the small ones.  I like the way these turned out!  Maybe I will be changing my design for the class!!    Therese

Giving Tree tags

These tags are for our Giving Tree!!  I die cut the red circle using my Nestibilities dies and then
I cut a hole at the top using my Cropadile.  Added yarn for the hanger and the bow.  We will be able to staple our gift request to them.
