Holiday Cheer!

Hi everyone. I've just completed a marathon 24 Christmas cards in the last 2 nights! I used Sizzix Hero Arts stamp and die cut set (657780) ' Holiday Cheer'  which was an early Christmas present from my gorgeous friend Linda. How kind is she? and so thoughtful, so thanks Linda, xxx. This set made it very easy to complete a batch of cards quickly -though I took forever as I kept gazing at my lovely papers! Anyway I've posted a picture of the completed cards here. I've also posted a seperate picture of one that I'll enter for a few challenges -so wish me luck! I used the picture that comes with the set for inspiration.

Products used:

  • Sizzix Hero Arts stamp and die cut set -Holiday cheer
  • Various papers from stash, main image is Do Crafts ,Daisy and Dandelion A5 Paper Pack
  • Images stamped in Distress Inks - Pine Needles, Broken China and Fired Brick
  • Ribbons and Bells from stash
  • Red card blank
  • Papermania shimmer dots
  • Nestabilities petite scalloped circles
