And ....... they're done!

Happy Friday ........

Well, that was cutting it fine ..... my Christmas cards are done!  I think.
Can I apologise now for any that arrive late.  Oh! and also the two birthdays that I forgot this week too ....... sorry ladies!  I'm not doing very well am I.  Cards are on their way, I promise.  I'm going to blame it on the booster jab that set me back 48 hours!!
Every year I find myself saying the same thing ....... I'm not going to leave my Christmas cards to the last minute but, here I am again, a week to go and I'm still busy in the craft room.  It's tags and gift wrap next though ...... the fun bit!

Here's the last of my Christmas cards for 2021.  
First up,  a copy of a design I did last year I think, updated with this year's favourite festive die.  I do love a snowflake, or two!

Lots of stamping and heat embossing, using Tim Holtz's snowflake stamps in various sizes.  

I did a whole batch of these, and becasue I used the MISTI to do the stamping they didn't take that long at all.

A mixture of sparkly gold, silver and white embossing powders for the larger flakes, with a few tiny snowflakes just stamped inbetween to fill any gaps.   And then lots of white paint splatters over the top

I layered the die cut sentiment to add a bit of dimension, gave it a touch of sparkle with some fine crystal glitter,  and then attached it over the top of my snowflakes ........ love it!

I love it even more with a bit of mat and layering, for one or two special cards.

My final card for this year was made especially for the team at our favourite little wine bar/restaurant ......

Says it all really!

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day, and have a lovely weekend.
I'm off to the post office now!

Cheerio until next time ........
