Trio of Christmas cards

Hello again,

Back to share a few more Christmas cards, these three cards all feature images from DigiStamp Boutique, the first has three of the cutest and fluffy penguins which I coloured brightly to go with some of my Doodlebug Designs Paper, adding a die cut sentiment and a few stars to finish off.
Note:- DigiStamp Boutique are having a sale at the moment 50% off all in store.... apologies for enabling you 😁

The second card has a super cute Pug decked out in some reindeer antlers, teamed up with a sentiment from Memory Box set ‘Here comes Santa Paws’ a very clean and simple design for me.

My third card features a little robin carol singing, with a corner holly die and a poinsettia to finish off the card, the sentiment was embossed in 32C heat and the embossing ink was much faster in drying out, at least I didn’t have the heat gun on for long.

I added plenty of sparkle to each of the cards, on the first and third card with Glitter paint and on the little Pugs antlers and star ornaments a liberal coating of Wink of Stella.
What I used:-
5x7" card blanks (12.6x17.8cm)
Cardstock-teal, red, white, olive green
Patterned papers from my stash-various brands, Kaisercraft, doodlebug designs, some magazine freebies
Derwent and Faber-Castell Pencils
Marianne Design Star punch die
Marianne Design Poinsettia die
Impression Obsession Holiday Top word Edger
Impression Obsession Holly Flourish
CCD Scalloped border die

P.S. To those in the northern hemisphere please send cool air south, for those in the southern hemisphere I'll happily send you some of our hot weather 35C today and I live in an area where hot days are few and far between, no air conditioner as it is not worth it.
