Fast Christmas cards.

Two versions of a Christmas Card. The stamps are by Butterfly Kisses– there are quite a few designs of these trees, available as wood-mounted or unmounted. They all also have a matching background, in this case I used the background to the swirl tree to stamp long lines of the swirl, embossed with sparkly  or holographic embossing powder. These were trimmed and then stuck with DST and the edges covered with peeloff lines. With the holographic powder I found that heat applied for different lengths of time produced varying shades- an unexpected surprise, and looks good for the trees.I added a few self adhesive jewels to the trees, then matted onto opposing colour, then attached to the card front with foam tape. A peel off greeting finished them off. I need to make around 150 Christmas cards each year for friends, workmates, mine & Hubbys friends on forums etc, before I get to the special ones for family, so apart from starting early ( anyone who knows me knows this will never happen) I go for something that can be quickly put together but still look good, so I am not averse to using peeloffs for sentiments or edging.
