O Holy Night

Hello again,

Well not making enough of my Christmas cards all year long came back to bite me on the you know where, I think I have made about fourteen cards this week (and still have a couple more I need)👀, some were batch makes of the Aussie Santa in Sydney, I didn’t even worry about taking pics of them.

I had bought a new die from the recent craft show I attended, from a shop who has begun creating their own designs Catchy Crafts are also one of the biggest stall holders at the craft shows, the new die is called Bethlehem Town and I made two cards with the die, one is winging its way to my 94 year old Great Aunt who lives in far north Queensland and the other a hop across the road.

I must say that I have been severely influenced by Shaz in Oz in these cards, love the embossing with the scroll like sentiment on the first and reminds me I should dig out embossing folders more often. Thank you for the inspiration Shaz!

Here are my cards:-

What I used:-

White card stock to make card blank measuring 11cm x 17.5cm

White and Black AC card for embossing

Kaisercraft Lattice 5x7 embossing folder

Kaisercraft Damask 5x7 embossing folder

Impression Obsession Stamp ‘Jack Frost’ sentiment stamp

Adhesive:- Double Sided Adhesive sheet, Foam tape, double sided tape

I would like to enter these cards in:-

I think all our Christmas cards have been written and will get popped in the post tomorrow, minus a couple of hand deliveries and two to my friends who seem to move around a lot. Holding theirs in reserve until one of them confirms an address or two.

Thank you for looking in...
Have a wonderful weekend...

P.S. A Huge Thank you to all the lovely visitors who take the time to leave me a comment, I truly appreciate them all!

P.P.S. Could someone in the northern Hemisphere send some cool air this way, looking at the fourth day above 27C and no end in sight, I don't do heat well!
