A whole bunch of Christmas cards

I managed to be quite productive for a change on Sunday - I didn't have the computer on to distract me and I managed to get half a dozen of these identical Christmas cards done for the girls in my office.

I love this Poinsettia stamp.  It's one of those Medallion stamps that were all the rage quite a few years ago.  I never quite managed to do the layering thing - my cutting out wasn't good enough and it just looked rubbish. So, here it is just coloured with Promarkers.  Oh, and I found some lovely glittery gold embossing powder amongst my stash so they're all beautifully shiny.  I tried to capture it in the next photo:

Hope you can see it!

I cut an aperture frame out using square nesties and then used some 3D foam to mount onto the card base which makes the image look like it's in a photo frame.  The sentiment is from HOTP and has also been embossed with the same glittery gold powder.

Well, that's another few cards done and dusted.
