5 for the price of 1!!

Hey Blogland... Well, after a brief respite from Christmas so that I could post my Dad's Father's Day card, I'm back on it!!And here is a selection I made in a very short space of time.. Once I had come up with the idea I churned them out in no time at all and in as many colours as I had to hand!!Using the Marianne Creatables Poinsettia (LR0122) I cut out 2 shapes in White card stock and 1 in Green.Layering them all together and off setting them slightly, adding a gem in the middle as a focus point...I then embossed a piece of White card stock using the Marianne Designables Embossing Folder called Classic (DS0911).This was matt and layered onto the same Green card as I had used for my Poinsettia leaves so as to keep the theme running through the project.I then mounted my completed Poinsettia on to the embossed imageand then added the two elements to my base card to which I had already added a small strip of the Green card to..
Quick, simple and effect!! It says "Christmas" to me! How about you??
So, that one done and out of the way, it was only a hop, skip and a jump to make a few more samples...Something a little more contemporary!!And something a little more traditional!Then back to contemporaryfor my last couple...I hope that these simple examples give you some inspo to get your Crimbo crafting under way, if you haven't started already that is!!
Thanks for checking us out & see you soon.
