Hello there

Sorry it has been a while since my last post. Unfortunately life has got in the way.

Any way, Today I want to share with you a couple of cards I have made ready for Christmas (Shhh!).

Both these cards are 7x5" card blanks.
On this first card I used backing paper is from a pad I have had in my stash for a while (sorry don't know the make), The decoupage topper is a Forever Friends die cut one. I have shaped each individual pieces before layering them up. The topper is then layered on an white card which was die cut and embossed using the Marianne Petra Ovals die and I used the Iced Spruce distress ink to highlight the embossed areas. The card was finished off with three gold 'nailheads' in the top right and bottom left corner. The sentiment was also inked with Iced Spruce.
On this second card, I again used a backing paper from an old stack. This time I used the Forever Friends Pyramage set. Again the frame was made using white card and the Marianne Petra Ovals die. Inked the embossed areas with Iced Spruce distress ink. Three small pearl gems again in the top right and bottom left corner finish this off.

I hope you like these two cards. I enjoyed putting them together.

Happy Crafting.
