Christmas cards.



This weeks theme over at Make My Monday is Vintage/Traditional.
I realy need to get more cards made so this is helping to get me motivated.
Someone told me today its only about 6 weeks till Christmas. Help!
The background is a selection of papers pieces , lying on my desk from other projects.
 . A Martha Stewart edger punch helped make use of a thin left over strip.
 Santa's image is a Paper Artsy stamp shaded with tea dye distress inks.


Other challenge for this card is-
 the Stampman Collage/background collage.



This card is made with paper layers and a ready to use image,  from Lily of the Valley. I bought these at a craft fair in the Spring, they will come in very  useful for quick makes. The tree is an Alterations die cut.

Now this card is about as close to 'cute' as I've made in ages, so I hope it will fit the new Challenge over at C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 128,
which is Cute.


Thankyou for stopping by to take a look. I realy appreciate you calling.
