My Christmas Card Efforts for 2015

Sharing my Christmas card efforts for this year .
I managed to make everyone on my Card list  Handmade cards.

This embossing folder & stamps were free on 
Simple Cards & Paper-craft Magazine no 142
I made several cards like this for friends & neighbours


Then this beautiful Poinsettia embossing folder was 
also free on Card Making & Paper-craft Magazine no 148 .
I coloured the flowers with chalk pastel's and cut the flower with my Silhouette 
machine . 


Card group swap theme was  " Victorian Christmas card "
Isn't this image beautiful a real Victorian image 
The Christmas Greetings sentiment was
embossed &  die cut using a new Sizzix set .


As was this background .
Here is another beautiful  Victorian image .
 This Green is my favourite colour.


I was pleased with the free stuff from the magazines . 
as sometimes the  free bees are disappointing 
but not this time .


Wishing You All 
Happy New Year
