Christmas cards

Made a start a few weeks ago on my christmas cards, I've still got a lot more to do.

This was an experiment that actually worked!  I stamped the images on to glitter card which doesn't show very well on the photo and very carefully coloured them in with copics. I used versafine ink, then put some kitchen roll over them to blot the ink, though even after doing that the ink was still wet a few days later but didn't smudge, images were matted on to green holographic card, the red paper is from my stash, snowflakes cut from cuttlebug die.
Teddy bear image is Penny Black 'Dear Santa' while the other is Hero Arts 'Classic Christmas Borders' CL112 clear set.

Image from Pink Gem Designs 'Snow Love' coloured with copics. Dark green snowflake paper from a Dovecraft 12x12 pack 'Victorian Christmas' while multicoloured snowflake paper is by Cosmo Cricket 'Silly Chilly' (double sided).

The pink paper is the reverse side of  'Silly Chilly' that was used on  the 'Snow Love' card.  The image is from Penny Black 'Xmas Hat', the hat was decoupaged.

Papers used on this card are from Hot Off The Press Christmas 8x8 papers.  Again image is from Penny Black 'Snow Trot' coloured with copics. Go Kreate dies used to cut the squares.

Paper as before (HOTP) sentiment from stash, ovals cut with Go Kreat dies and embossed with Cuttlebug 'Snow Dots' folder, Penny Black 'Dear Santa'. Copics used to colour.

Pink Gem Designs 'Winter Mimi' coloured with copics. Scalloped circle cut with nestie, white panels embossed with Cuttlebug 'Snow Flake' folder, paper from Basic Grey 'Eskimo Kisses' 'Village'.
I'm not sure whether to put a sentiment on the bottom or something else, card candy?

Green card from HOTP 8x8 Christmas papers, sentiment from stash, card candy from Craftwork cards.  Image is Penny Black 'Sled Ride'coloured with Promarkers. 

Paper is Basic Grey 'Figgy Pudding' 'Pepperberry', red card and cord is from stash.  Penny Black 'Teddy Santa' coloured with copics.

Wanted to make something quick and simple, and this certainly was. Cuttlebug 'Holly Branch' embossing folder with red sticky dots placed over the berries. Red strip of card embossed with 'Snow Flake' folder.  Sentiment from craftwork cards.

The next ones are inspired by Shirley, who does the workshops at Craft Inspirations.

Paper is from Craftwork Cards 'Jack Frost' white range 8x8 pack and 'Jack Frost' Blues. Matted onto silver mirri card, used blue mirri on the blue cards. Baubles are peel offs
