Christmas Cards Part Three

One more sleep to go then we can all relax for a few days and wonder what all the fuss was for. 
Some people like to make their Christmas cards throughout the year but I prefer to gather all my Christmas themed craft goodies together in November and spend a couple of weeks making my cards. I find it easier than dipping in and out making a few cards at a time.
Today I have the last of this year's Christmas cards to show you.

These cards were made with acetate and stamps from Chloe. Lots of stamping, heat embossing and cutting out was involved.
The papers are from First Edition which were matted onto silver mirri card.

I used my Sizzix Bigz Tattered Poinsettia die for the flowers and a Spellbinders die for the sentiment panels. The sentiment stamps are from Docrafts. The cards were finished with seam binding ribbon bows.

The last variety of cards I made this year were made with all the layers of the Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia die. Some of the papers I used were coloured with Brushos. The background is an X-cut  embossing folder and the ribbons are from my stash. The flowers were finished off with Shabby White Frantage.

All that remains now is to wish you all a 
Merry and Peaceful Christmas.
