Christmas tag cards


It seems to have been ages since I have had time to make some cards, I have started back to work with a bang, its been exceptionally busy and crafting has taken a back seat.
At last today, I have had a few hours to myself and have set about making a few Christmas cards and entry's for the latest Hero Arts Challenge..  The Postcard stamp from Hero Arts makes a lovely shape card and I have made three using it.  The first two have a distressed background that I have splattered with water, I love this Peacock blue. I was lucky enough to win this older Christmas Flourish Tree stamp and have embossed it in white and also gold for the second card. This card I am going to enter in the Moxie Fab World "All that Glitters is Gold"  Challenge. (Thanks for the heads up Lin.)



The last card is very CAS and I have just added some sparkle with gems and stickles.



I am hoping things have quietened down a bit now and I can get back into my craft room again!

You're right Sally, that stamp does make such a nice shaped & size card! Love your embossed tree, perfect for XMas and then your more "cleaner" design is just as beautiful!

Getting back into routine always takes a while! Especially when you're working with kids - they siphon off energy, you know :) lol!
These are absolutely gorgeous! Love the fun inked backgrounds & that swirl tree - and the perfect sparkle on the snowflakes!
