Christmas Cards Part 2

Barely a week till the big day to go now. How are your preparations coming along? Just food shopping and festive fun left for us. It's the last Saturday before Christmas. The shops are going to be manic so I'm staying home and will be spend the day wrapping up the last of the presents. 
I have some more of my mixed media cards to show today. 

Again these cards involved papers from Maja Design, Dovecraft and Paper Studio. I used texture paste, stencils, gesso and paint on some of them.
The cards all (just about) fit into 6" x 6" (20 x 20 cm) envelopes.

I loved going over the top with the die-cuts and glitter on this style of cards. The pretty laces and trims are from NoorDesign and Docrafts.

The bows are made with white seam binding. Some have been coloured using Distress Inks. The berry sprigs are from NoorDesign and the poinsettias were made using the Sizzix Bigz Tattered Poinsettia Tim Holtz die.
Not all the Christmas cards I made this year are in this style. I still have time to show you different cards next week. In the meantime have a fun weekend and enjoy your Christmas preparations.
