Batch Making Christmas Cards

My inspiration for card making is still hiding away so when I made a CAS christmas card that I was pleased with I decided to make a batch of them - be warned this is rather a photo heavy post.

I love a white and red colour combo for christmas cards so grabbed a load of LOTV toppers (the pile is gradually getting smaller) which I die-cut and matted onto silver mirricard. I used white linen card to make the card bases, added some lovely red gingham ribbon and silver pearls and then the toppers.

and here's a photo of each card

I shall enter these in the following challenges ~

Lili of the Valley Monthly challenge 'merry christmas'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'anything goes'
The Ribbon Girl Card challenge 'christmas card'

Sorry I've not been very sociable lately but I'm still feeling off it. I'm going for an endoscopy tomorrow which I'm not looking forward to (and I shall definitely want the sedative !!) So thanks for being such good blogging friends and your continued visits and I will come and catch up with you all soon.

So pleased you felt up to a bit of crafting Andrea and they are lovely with the traditional warm reds.

Good luck with the endoscopy, normal to be worries but they actually sound a lot worse they are. I didn't have the sedative but it's very much a personal thing. Will be thinking about you.
