May peace be your gift at Christmas

This card uses a piece of paper from my Christmas offcuts box (another opportunity to have a go on the swings at the playground at Pixie's Crafty Snippets 12) and a sentiment panel which was left over from a kit bought two or three Christmases ago.

This is for Craft your passion 102: just sentiments, Lollipop crafts 72: sentimentally yours, both of which call for the sentiment to be the focus of the card.

Sailing by with best wishes

This is a quick card made with a piece of English Paper Company all aboard paper background and a recycled picture from an old card - the picture has a lovely texture to it. Just the addition of the Craftime sentiment and the card was done.

Christmas stocking

This is a Christmas card featuring a stocking brimming with presents for Facebook Sunday's with Santa week 12: presents (bit of a cheat perhaps because you can only really see one present unless you count the candy cane, but the other presents are all tucked away in the stocking - lol!). The card also features dry embossing (stars), so this is for Christmas inspirations 43: dry embossing or heat embossing.

This was one of those cards that's very difficult to get a photo because of all the fold foiling - I had several attempts and in the end had to settle for this. The gold is for Card crafters circle 14: pot of gold and the stars are for Dilly Beans: stars.
