Favourite Five Christmas Cards

I have decided to join in with Debby's favourite five and post my favourite five Christmas cards from this year and then on New Years Eve I will post my favourite five cards from this year.

It was difficult limiting myself to just five cards but these are the five that I chose in the end.

This was the card for my sister Lucinda and her family.  I used a Cuddly Buddly stamp and Martha Stewart deep edge snowflake punch.  The small snowflakes were cut from glitter cardstock with a cuttlebug die.

And a close up

This card I made for Richard

I made an easel card using large scalloped circle dies from Go Kreate and decorated with a sweet Penny Black hedgies.  The snow is done using Woodware fluffy stuff.

My next card was made for a challenge that I had with my friend Wendy, I challenged her to make me a cute card as she dislikes doing cute stuff and I would make her a traditional card as I tend to usually make cute cards.  This is what I came up with for her.

I used a stamp from Blue Moon and embossed it with red glitter.  The background was stamped using various stamps from Penny Black 'T for transparent' Crystalline set in red, black and white ink.  I highlighted all the centres of the snowflakes with glitter.

I don't get much time to cross stitch cards these days but did manage earlier this year whilst on holiday to get this sweet Winnie the Pooh card stitched.

And finally I made these cards in November and loved making them, they are so cute - I will definitely use this design again next year
