Quick Cuttlebug Christmas cards


Well I don't know about everyone else, but I'm just starting to feel a bit of pressure now to get on a bit faster with my Christmas cards. Generally each make takes me at least 2 1/2 hours, so Ithought I'd better pull my finger out and make a few more quickly. So I pulled out my new Cuttlebug embossing folders and got going. The results are "quick" for me though still probably painfully slow by most standards LOL ... last night I managed to make 4 cards + toppers for 2 more in under 3 hours.

The Christmas trees have been embossed onto pearlised card using the Cuttlebug folder, and decorated with Papermania gems + an individual gem from my local craft shop. Flowers are from the Prima gold Christmas bubble, rub on greetings and ribbon from my stash.

The winter scene has been embossed using the "Winter House" folder onto dark blue pearlised card, (doesn't look as dull in real life as in the photo LOL!) then glittered with peewee glitter. Blue buttons are by Doodlebug, white button and ribbons from my stash.
