Saturday card(s): Last Christmas cards

Here some of my final Christmas cards.
The gnome is so much fun to keep on using.
I noticed on the Club Scrap site,
the rubber is sold out, but you can always
downoad the digital version to use here
(thaen you can make the Gnome any size you want).

The stars and the sparkle stamps in the
background are also Club Scrap
The trees (with matching dies)

Now here a little explaining how the cards are made:
Start with the background. First stamp stars or a sparkly
background in vesamark and emboss with white
embossing powder. Then take a post it paper and tear
a strip to create the snowy ground. Use this to
cover the paper and then take blue ink to color the sky.
Because you embosed the stars they come through
the blue ink (you can use a soft cloth to clean the stars).
Stamp the tree and also embos in white.
Now use the dies to cut them out.
put the dieson the marked dots and run it
through your die cut machine.
You can also cut the trees out of plain paper and run
them through the crimper and add some white ink
for snow effect. Or you can add versamark
and  add glitter embossing.
With sticky gold dots I give the stars and the sparkles
some extra glam. Add your wish at the bottomof the 
card and adhere to panel and card.

Here are the finished cards:


And here are some more for your inspiration:





And I guess you also have a line with all your cards. I use pegs for this
and this year I have decorated mine with washi tape:
The (mini) star is also by Michael Strong.


Well, the Holidays are upon us
and i do hope you all have a jolly good time!

Have a creative day!
