Christmas Spirit

To make the leaves on the first set of cards I drew a holly leaf shape & tore it out.Then I embossed the leaves in an embossing folder & lightly inked the top & the edges. The center leaf was raised with foam mounting tape. Once put together I put glitter glue along the edges of the leaves & drew in veins.
The santas were stamped in black ink & coloured in using tombow markers. On the white areas I used "Ranger embossing Puffs", which is an embossing powder that puffs up slightly when you heat it. The front of these cards fold back on themselves & a u-shaped cut it made to create a flat folded piece where I mounted the santa pieces.

The baubles on these cards were cut out from patterned paper & then embellished with glitter glue & blingy bits. I made the cards with pearl & metallic papers to give a shimmery Christmas feel to them.

Christmas is in the air and some people I know have already done their Christmas shopping and wrapped the gifts already-mind you, they don't scrapbook either!! I made some cards ready to send at the beginning of December. I just love Christmas time and all that comes with it.
