We three kings ...


Another CAS Christmas card made with an offcut piece of chocolate brown mirror card run through the todo with the Star of wonder embossing folder by Die'sire. The topper was rescued from an old card - too good to put in the recycling bin. There is just a hint of brown with glitter here and there that tones with the piece of embossing, on to a white card blank.

Home for Christmas


This quick and easy card has no patterned paper, but an offcut strip of purple mirror card embossed with the lovely Star of wonder embossing folder by Die'sire. It's hard to get a photo showing it without getting glare.The card blank is a pale lilac.

The centre piece is from a Kanban kit purchased long ago. The photo doesn't show it, but the inside of the frame has an acetate dome to give depth.  And the houses inside the frame are glittered, but, once again, it doesn't show. Greeting is a silver peel off.

I bring you good news ...


... of great joy

Another quick and easy Christmas card using Kanban papers (the top one is foiled, but can't get it to show on the photo). The image that I've printed out is one that I've had for some time and I can't remember where it came from. If anyone recognises, please let me know.
