Today has been spent making cards all day, my fingers are about to fall off.  I am making cards for a friend of mine and he has asked for quite a few to be made.  I will show you some of them that I have done.  Hopefully the pics will come out the right way.

This was made using die cuts Noel, 25, holly and berries. They were attached to the card using Pinflair glue and using distress ink for the swirls on the back of the card.

I made this card by using 3 strips of cardboard and heavily embossing it , once embossed and still wet I used a stamp to embed an image across it. Then I added the Merry Christmas and embossed it as well.

Die cut house, tree, lamp post, icicles and fence.  The house was doubled in order to put the curtains behind the windows and a piece of card behind the door window.  There was a piece of yellow card put behind the lamp post. Everything was brought together and glamour dust was used along with glitter glue to give it some sparkle.

This was my very first pan pastel attempt, and even though it isn't perfect  it showed Santa with his Reindeers quite clearly.  I used masks for the hills and sky, and used pan pastels across the card, once finished I stamped the trees and Santa and his Reindeers on the card and then finished it off with a spray of fixative.

This card was embossed and then the lamp post was die cut, the poinsetta's were part of a packet (bit of a cheat) I didn't even make them myself.  The Happy Christmas was then stamped with gold onto the card.
