Nothing for days, then they all arrive at once..

See? Told you I was having fun! lol ;o) And there's loads more to come! (For those of you who are fed up with Christmas cards, hang on a tick and there'll be something different in a minute or two...)

These three are using up the negative images left after making snowflake die-cuts with glitter card. Way too pretty to waste! Have also used sentiments cut from 'previously used' Christmas cards.

This one is mounted on white leather-effect card from Elzybells. It gives a great snow effect.

One of said snowflake die-cuts, but in red Dufex card this time.

Here's another of the snowflake die-cuts. (They came in a set of three. Sizzix, I think.) Image and sentiment from an old card, Nestabilities Labels #1 for cutting the image shape and border + waxed cord wrap and Basic Grey button.

The images on this card and the next one were originally together layered up on one of those so-called "handcrafted" cards you can buy from posh shops. You know, the ones that are 99% printed, but may have a bow stick on somewhere to qualify as "handcrafted". Grrrr! Anyway, I think these images work better apart, and handcrafted by me!! ;o) lol

This one has an Elzybells text stamp in the background, and an SU stamp for the December 25th roundel.
Lovely, glittery Santa face, cut with Nestabilities again.. Labels #8, I think.. (He still hasn't answered my letter.. I asked him to define 'naughty', but he is playing it close to his chest. Sigh.) Sentiment taken from the inside of an old card, and Kaleidopunch snowflake with lime green Stickles.

Using up more glitter card offcuts... Just can't throw away glittery bits!

Loving this one, though I say so myself. Using up an offcut, but - again - too pretty to throw away, so mounted it on some dark brown Bazzill, torn around the edges and glamour dusted. Stamped PSX's Christmas script in the background, with more glamour dust on holly leaves punched out of music paper. Fern stamp used underneath.
Hope you're not fed up with them yet.. there is more to come! But not just yet.. Have something slightly different for you next..
