A few Christmas cards....

I have had quite a productive weekend making lots of Christmas cards - I have been so good this year and bought hardly any pps or embellishments - I did buy a couple of stamp sets for Christmas - but haven't yet tried them out. So people keep saying it's too early to start with Christmas preparation - but it's only 8 weeks away - I do have tons of cards to make so I am pleased that I am nearly halfway through now.

These cards were made for a couple more Poppicraft DT projects - I am loving these poinsettia flower packs - you get so many flowers in them and they do layer up so nicely with any type of bloom as well. This first card was made just using the poinsettias and the other two using the small ones layered with some of the lovely Blooms to go - also from Poppicrafts.

All ribbon, buttons, eyelets and blooms were from Poppicrafts, pp - a mixture of scraps from last year, various stickers also from my stash mountain. So how many Christmas cards have you made then girls?

Lovely card, the colours and papers and sentiment work really well.
As far as chrissy cards - struggling with mine, but I have made 90+ tags and 18 cards that I'm selling with the proceeds going to our local Breast Cancer Unit. I think I shall tell friends - no cards from me, but I will sell you one!
Enjoyed my visit, Ikki x
