Christmas Cards

Well I've had quite a productive day today!  I started making some Christmas cards.  I used my new Cuttlebug for cutting shapes and for embossing and was pleased with the results.

I've kept it quite simple as I hope to sell these cards at any fairs that I do.

I cut the mats using Nesties and then embossed them using a snowflake folder. I used sandpaper on the embossing and then rubbed chalk over it and then edged it with Distress Ink.  I used a die to cut out the postage stamp style square and then a snowflake die which I coloured with Distress Ink and then used stickles to glitz it up abit!!  The sentiment was printed using a 'Candle' font and I put frosted lace stickles on it and edged and coloured it with Distress Ink.
I made 9 of these and was quite pleased with them.
