Merry Christmas! x 5

Well hello everyone!

How are you all?..well I hope.
Feeling the change in the weather here in the UK that's for sure..heating on and winter duvet!

 I can't believe we are into October! So I thought I had better get cracking with a few batch Christmas cards.

I used a die that I bought in 'The Works', some small base cards and some oddments of other card, mostly glitter. Here they are in no particular order and oh so difficult to photograph!

This first one was liberally sprinkled with Glamour dust on plain white card.......

Silver glitter card on this next one...encapsulated.... and I found it hard to die cut even on the Gemini! The true sparkle does not show unfortunately.

Silver mirri card though it does look a bit gold on this picture.....

A red and gold combi glitter paper.....

and lastly bronze glitter card on pearlescent chocolate card......

So 5 cards to add to the box and very quick to do once I had decided on the colour combos. Which is your favourite?

It's a sunny day here today but cold, but still a welcome change from all the rain we have had lately. Autumn is really here and I have to say I am DEFINITELY not a winter person with dark days and long nights.

I will catch up again soon with some more festive makes from my monthly trip to card club/class.

Someday I will hopefully find the time to play with some inks and try some more background techniques but at present it's got to be quick and easy so I am not at the last minute come December! (because I have left it till now to start maybe)

Take care everyone and have a good rest of the week and weekend.
Love Carole xx


  1. Super array of cards, it's amazing how different they look just by changing the colours. Now my favourite, easy peasy... you included my favourite word Carole - chocolate. Looks good as a colour combination on a card and tastes yummy in my tummy :) x

  2. Now these are rather nice!!! Busy girl you have been! I quite like winter - gives me an excuse to hole up in the craft room to escape the wind/rain/snow!! xx

  3. Totally agree about the weather Carole and like you am not a winter person, love the colours of Autumn but not the dark nights. Your cards are lovely and I've been back to look for a favourite, I do like the warm reds but I'm rather drawn to the coppery bronze one.


  4. It's fun to see the same die cut in different papers! I love the elegant!

  5. What a great collection of cards Carole and they will be a fabulous addition to your Christmas stash. I love that die and it looks gorgeous in the different card-stocks. I'm with you about winter - it seems great in theory but it doesn't take me long to get fed up with it and once we pass Christmas, I just long for spring!
    Have a great weekend.

  6. Yes it is feeling cooler but I like the cool nights. Your cards are lovely and that die is perfect for quick cards... I should be getting into making Christmas cards but I can't find the enthusiasm...sigh. Enjoy your weekend Carole
