A Kaiser Christmas

Good morning

Today I would like to share with you a couple of Christmas cards made using Kaisercrafts Just Believe range. 
Ths first card is a 6 x 6" card blank in red card. The background paper is cut form the 12 x 12" paper. We then cut a length od red paper and punched it with a scalloped border punch. We then stuck a length of green cotton lace onto the paper. The sentiment was cut from a sheet of the papers which had smaller die cuts on. Between the ribbon and the die cut we cut a flourish frame from the green paper and we used a Marianne Flourish die. A cream ribbon bow and a snowflake embellishment finish the card off. Sorry the photo really does not do this card justice.

This second card also uses the same paper pack. This time we used a 5x7" card base. The bottom of the card used the pale blue paper and then for the top of the card we used the red flourish paper. One thingh I love about Kaisercraft papers is that on the reverse of the index strip on the bottom of the papers they put a matching design. This is what has been trimmed and used to cover the join between the two papers. The topper was cut from the die cut sheet, snowflakes punched in the corner and then matted onto pale blue pearlescent card. The village scene on the bottom of the card was cut with another Marianne die. Although it doesn;t show very well on the photo, I used a quickie glue pen on the roof of the buildings and then sprinkled Glamour Dust over the top as a bit of snow.I think the hardest part on this card for me was tying the cream bow, it just would not go right!

I hope these cards have given you some inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by. 
I appreciate all comments you may have on my cards.
