Simply Faith at Christmas

A quick Christmas card today, using the Gemini Faith cut and emboss folder with a piece of Hunkydory striped mirror card, matted  on to silver mirror card and then on to the side opening A5 card blank.

I'm including two photos of the card, trying to show the shine, but neither of them really do it justice.

This is for:

Christmas Eve

Another card made yesterday, this time using the lovely Gemini cut and emboss folder called Christmas Eve. I cut and embossed using a piece of black self adhesive sheet, which I then stuck on to holographic silver card - this, of course, looks different depending how the light is shining on it. I added some punched out snowflakes. The sentient was stuck on to a small piece of the holographic silver, and everything on to another A5 tent opening card blank.

Apart from the card blank and sentiment, everything else used up offcuts/snippets and so I am entering this into Pixie's snippets 389 - so glad to be back in the playground.

This is also for:

DL Christmas card

I had an offcut of patterned pearlescent card, so I positioned it into the Gemini Christmas angel cut and emboss folder and then mounted on to dark blue mirror card and on to the blue DL card blank, with the addition of the sentiment.

This view shows that the angel cut  out was mounted on to blue mirror card (a lot darker actually than here because the light is full on it):

Christmas angel

One more made yesterday using some Hunkydory striped silver and gold mirror card to cut and emboss with the lovely angel folder, mounting on to gold mirror and using a Merry Christmas band across silver mirror.

Winter wonderland

Another card made yesterday - A5 tent style using Gemini cut and emboss Winter Wonderland folder with a piece of chocolate brown mirror card, with a piece of gold mirror card behind it and the Merry Christmas band across a matching piece of the brown mirror card.

This is for:

Away in a manger

A card made yesterday using another of the cut and emboss Gemini folders, Away in a manger, cut with silver mirror card and mounted on to pearlescent gold, using a piece of them to mount the clear tape sentiment made on my dymo letratag.

Once again, I'm sharing two photos to try to show how this card looks, but neither of them show it as well as it looks irl.

This is for:

Hark, the herald angels sing

A card made yesterday using the lovely Gemini cut and emboss Christmas angel folder, cutting with gold foil and backing with silver holographic foil. The sentiment across the bottom was made on my dymo letratag with clear tape, then stuck on to a piece of the mirror card.

As usual with foiled card, very difficult to take a photo to show it well, so I'm showing two photos, neither of which look as bright and lovely as irl.
