 This card was simple to sew as it was basically straight lines. I added the peel off border mounted onto red card and added the holly flourish and sentiment.
 This stitched card is the only embellishment on this left over Christmas card stock. I added a few star shaped jems.
This snowflake card was simple and quick to make. The large snowflake is the new Tim Holtz die which is concertina folded and then connected to make a circle then "flattened" to make a flat circle. I just added the silver snowflake from a Martha Stewart punch on top. Job Done !!!

 This card i made using "Dee's distinctively" dies. I love the copper paper which was from some envelopes that i bought ages ago with some iris folding cards, but I didn't like the designs so i recycled the envelopes to make this card.
 This card is stitched on paper. I then mounted onto red card and then onto some Christmas card stock that i had from hunkeydory - i think. I then made the poinsetta from spellbinders, but didn't cut the leaves as I used bought holly leaves. I embossed the poinsetta then used inks to stencil through die to show veins. The Christmas message was originally on white card - so I used my promarkers to change to Red.
Another stitched card. I had the topper in my stash and couldn't believe my luck when the colours matched beautifully.

I made this card after watching create and craft with Sue Wilson. She made a similar card and I was very impressed with how simple but effective it looked so I decided to do one myself!!. I used the spellbinders Christmas tree and embossed it twice on either side of a A4 sheet of card. Then I cut out three trees in shiny copper thick paper and stuck them together. I used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch to create the borders. Then stuck clear beads on top.
