More Christmas Cards

Because I bought a couple of Debbi Moore CDs at Alexandra Palace, I was rooting about the website looking for ideas. I didn't find many ideas, but I did find a whole load of freebies, and I've put a couple to work in my attempt to get ahead with Christmas cards.

For this card, I took a paper, image and greeting from the freebie collection. I added some glitter to the image and matted with gold mirriboard. To finish I used a Marianne Creatables die set to cut and emboss the poinsettia.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
A Little Bit Crafty where anything goes,
Digi Galore where they want 'one for the girls',
Card Crafter's Circle where they want die cutting/ dry embossing,

Again, the image, sentiment and paper came from the Debbi Moore freebies section. I added glitter to the image and matted, then finished with some gold ribbon and a poinsettia made using a Marianne Creatables die set.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Card and Scrap where they want die cuts,
Marianne's Design Divas where they're 'going girly',
Pattie's Creations where they want us to 'make it sparkle',
ABC Christmas where they want 'girl or guy creations'.

These cards are really wonderful! The images are beautiful, and I like them being a bit different from what one usually sees on a Christmas creation. With your choice of colors, elegant papers and beautiful poinsettias, these cards definitely have a Christmas feel to them!
