2014 Christmas Cards … no. 1 & 2

Christmas 2014Hi bloggies!

I am so excited to share some of the creations I have made for Christmas this year! I have scaled back the number of cards that I send over the last couple of years. I have also found it much quicker to make 4 of each design. Much more efficient use of time … at the time of year when time is so precious! Yep! I never seem to get on top of my Christmas cards early enough! 🙂 Here is the SECOND ……

The snowflakes are die cut from Vellum … I used sponge daubers to add the circles of soft colour … a little bit of bling (see below) to finish off! Easy! The sentiment is from a gorgeous Verve set called “Holiday Greetings”. Card Inspiration: Laura Bassen (a fav of mine!)
