Purple and White stamped Christmas verse

This is the latest Christmas design. The card itself has been embossed and layered up with a stamped Christmas message. Finished off with a few gems on a band of colour.

Joy, Peace and Hope, originally uploaded by believehandmade.

This was a favourite card of mine from last Christmas as its just so simple but still elegant.

The card itself stands landscape style and is stamped as you can see with 3 snowflakes which have been embossed with silver embossing powder and then set with a heat gun. Each snowflake has a gem attached in the middle. The wording Joy Peace and Hope then leads us nicely into the verse printed inside which reads...

"In a small and humble manger, on a night of peace on earth,
God gave us His greatest blessing, the gift of Jesus' birth.
May the wonder of that evening continue all year through,
and bring the joy of peace and hope thisChristmas day to you."

When they saw the star card

Unfortunately the quality of these pics aren't the greatest as I took them a few years back with not the best of cameras, but it says

When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.
On coming to the house,
they saw the child with his mother Mary,
and they bowed down and worshiped him.
Then they opened their treasures
and presented him with gifts of gold
and of incense and of myrrh.
Matthew 2 10&11

Joy to the world card

For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given,
and the government shall be upon His shoulders.
And His name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
The Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6

A batch of thank you cards

Well, I've been working like a Trojan all night long and all 15 cards are made. I'm delighted with them and it was great fun crafting them.

Girly thank you card

One of my friends asked me to make some thank you cards that were very pink and girly. These cards are always fun to make and I thoroughly enjoyed making this card. Now just another 14 to go!!!

These cards are just slightly above A6 size but square. I used my big shot sizzix and polka dot embossing folder to make the patterns on the pink paper as well as the card itself which is a new idea. I then used my big shot again along with my scallop cutting plate to make the gorgeous scallop shape. I then punched the scallops with my small hole cutter to add to the cuteness.

Then by using various circle punches I have built up upon the scallop with the top circle printed with "thank you".

A lovely striped pink paper and a few bots of bling bling just finish it off!

I'm really delilghted with this one and hope you like it too!
