My own Christmas Cards

Trying to get ahead of the game and get some batches of Christmas cards made ready for me to send.
I've made variations on this design using different blue coloured distress inks to create the background. I've then silver embossed a tree stamp. I used one from a Chocolate Baroque set and also a Penny Black stamp. I added a metal star to the tops of the trees and added some white glitter card at the bottom for the snowy landscape. I've then scattered some white Frantage embossing powder over the surface to make snow. Really pleased with these - clean and simple.
This one is another distress ink background. I've used yellows, oranges and reds but then covered most of it with Black Soot Distress ink just leaving a glowing area at the bottom. I've then stamped the nativity scene - I think this one is by Little Claire. I've added some text using a set by Altenew and used a versamark pen to do some dots to act as more stars. It's then all been embossed in gold. These will be ideal for my Christian friends and those at church.
