Quick Christmas cards

Hello there I hope you had a fabulous weekend. We spent ours in the company of good friends, we visited Zoe and her beautiful family in Lincolnshire and we had an amazing time. Currently we are in London spending a few more days with my sister our Brother in law and our delicious Luca Sambucca.

I said I was going to post every day this coming week and I will try my hardest to. I actually have TONS of projects that I made since September that never made it onto this blog so I will start with easy card ideas that will hopefully help you churn out your remaining cards FAST

And here it is today example

mitten make

Make a mitten is such a sweet set and I really used it a lot lately, is no news that i love a stamp set that has a matching punch purely because for a lazy stamper like myself it makes life so much easier, you simply stamp these beauties and with one push you cut them out, EASY!!!

The single stamp Heart of Christmas was used as the sentiment and this is the stamp I will use for all my personal cards this year I simply love it.

Here’s a close up of the mittens punched and layered up.

Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake , Cherry Cobbler and some of the wonderful glimmer paper in silver. This paper is so effective I cannot tell you how a little strip of it makes such a big difference to a project, I have been using it a lot in all three colours and of course with the silver you have the added bonus that you can colour it every colour you wish. Check this post here to understand what I mean :)

Thank you for joining me I hope you like today’s card and i look forward seeing you again tomorrow. Till then big hugs xxx
