Kaisercraft comes to the rescue

When we were in Eastbourne in September I bought a few goodies from That Craft Place  - just couldn't resist the Kaisercraft turtle dove papers and die cut shapes. So today I'm showing some cards I made last evening - they almost made themselves because the papers and die cuts really need nothing more added.

This is the first one I made using various papers and elements. Colours are for Pals paper arts 148: seasons greetings colour challenge:

  20. lovely card thanks for joining us at crafty mess xxx

  21. Yes, I did the same with a Kaiser set this year - sure cut down the time need to make a set of cards. However, I found that I could not use about half the die cuts (not suitable for us) so it was a bit of a waste for me. I ended up giving the rest away. However, it certainly made cardmaking less of a pressure activity for me and enabled me to spend time on other things, so guess it was worth it. Thanks for joining in all the fun at Unstampabelles this month for Christmas!

  22. I love the vintage feel of your card, great job. Thanks for joining us this week for "Anything Christmas."
