I'm here to share my last two Christmas cards for 2016. I run out of time and energy in the end and not everyone that I would have wanted to send cards to received one from me... But that's life I guess. :) However, I got some extra boost for these last cards: at Inkspirational we DT members have done a Secret Santa for a couple of years -we all get a person to send a small present to and everyone receives something from their Secret Santa too. This year I received a wonderful craft package from my Secret Santa: it contained die cuts, stamped images, sparkly enamel dot-type embellsihments, pre-made brush water color sheets and even some Christmas sentiment dies. Amazing package!
Here's the two first cards I made with the supplies. I used the brusho sheets (my Secret Santa tipped that they would be great for die cutting but I just couldn't bare cutting through them! They were so pretty!), the dies (for the word "merry"), the die cut bauble and those lovely sparkly embellishments. In the first card I also used a Uniko stamp for the "string" of the bauble and a Sugar Pea designs bow die + Christmas sentiment by STAMPlorations. My second card is super simple, I've only added a heat embossed Finnish Christmas sentiment and a snowflake I had. I so love these sparkly enamel dots, they look amazing! Thank you Secret Santa!
With this post I want to wish everyone the most wonderful Christmas. I hope you'll enjoy the holidays by celebrating, resting, hanging out with loved ones... And by crafting of course! :)
I'd like to join Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday (use dies) with my first card.
