Another simply stamped Christmas card

This is a Kanban stamp inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail gold - shame the shine doesn't show up here.

It's also for:

Stamp, scrap & doodle: bells

Papercraft star 75: a bell or an ornament

The true meaning of Christmas

It was Pinky's turn to choose the theme for the Christmas gang girls for today and she chose 'religious' - I'm so glad she did because it's an opportunity to share cards that depict the true meaning of Christmas. It can be so easy amid all the trimmings and festivities to ignore what the season is really about, so here is an opportunity to include some cards for which I've used the lovely Woodware Mary and Joseph stamp, inked with memento and coloured with copics and marvy le plume.

I made these cards the other day - and quite a few similar ones that you might be seeing over the next couple of days if I get round to blogging them.

The first time include silver foiled papers from a past QVC kit (shame the silver looks black here, but hey ho) and the blue and white paper in the second one is a snippet left from some English Paper Company paper.

The third and fourth cards feature Flowersoft papers:

These are also for:
