Three 'Special cards'

Hi there! Have you time for a cuppa?...no! ..........OK then....  I'll make it snappy.

Today I have a few Christmas Cards to show you now that the recipients have received them......yes I just may be back tomorrow...I know that's a first for me.....I usually only manage once a week......sorry back to today and the cards I have made for the 3 special men in my life.....two sons and hubby....

First up for eldest son and girlfriend...........

Made with love using Sue Wilson dies and Creative Expressions card, it's really twinkly navy though it looks black in the photo..................bad light. The snowflakes...well glittered... are Spellbinders and the embossing folder is Creative Expressions.........if you wish for specifics please e-mail me and I will look up the name....although you probably have it too!

 Secondly for younger son and wife and Thomas....on the same theme but with the snowman.......

this looks paler on here, the turquoise card is abit deeper in real life,

and last but of course not the least......for hubby...... a 3D card (diarama I think it's called)....

this time using stamps and dies by Sheena (Perfect partners)...oh and the background again is a Sue Wilson die with really sparkly silver glitter paper behind. The trees were stamped, coloured with a very pale green copic, fussy cut and layered on to the background and the stag was stamped after he was die cut...he is so regal don't you think?

As you can see there was liberal amounts of glitter used on all three cards...got to have sparkle at Christmas!

OK off to make some soup today...ironing you say?...no...did that yesterday.(smug grin)
Have a good day and I will hopefully see you tomorrow.
Thanks for popping in..........I know you are all busy.

  3. Well am back! Didn't get the turkey but got the other bits - if we don't get turkey tomorrow it'll be beans on toast cos I ain't going out again - the world has gone mad!! I mean SERIOUSLY how much food do people want?? And the damn supermarkets are open on 26th anyway!!
    Soap box collapsed....
    Scrummy cards - the snow globes are LUVERLY - but 3d Staggie is SUBLIME! Love it. x

  4. You have a wonderful lot of texture on here, I'm eyeing up the embossing folder and the snowflakes. They are all suitably glittery, it would be wrong not to add it. I hope you have a lovely Christmas. x

  5. Fabulous cards Carole! You should rightly be very proud of these! The diorama is particularly gorgeous!
