That Winter Feeling!

Morning All

I have finally finished making my Christmas cards for family and friends.  I have made over 100 which took me 5 days.  They have all got inserts too and embellishmets.  So glad that it is all done for this year.  I have a few orders to do now and then I am done for this year! 

I keep promising myself that I will make a few Christmas cards each month, but I never do, time just keeps marching on!

Here is just one of my Christmas Cards!

White base card which I have rounded the cornes using my corner punch.  Navy blue embossed card from Hunkydory which I have cut out using my Spellbinder die Grand scalloped rectangle.  The decoupage is Popcorn and Friends at Christmastime made by Reddy which I bought from Crafter's Companion.  I have edged the first layer with gold peel offs and added a few gold snowflakes  where they join.  I have added glossy accents to the pond to give the illusion of ice and added Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Twinkles to the tress, horizon and the base of the trees.  I have added the sentiment which reads "Have yourself a Magical Christmas" and to finish off added gems to the 4 corners of the card.

Thank you for stopping by today.
