My first card used Decosse images and papers from Holiday Hoopla & Santa Clause is Coming to Town
I printed everything up separately and used my perfect layers tool for the sentiment. I used my Scan N Cut for the brads & Boarders
My second card uses the Kitty Bee image - Santa Penguin
First I cut my card stock to make a 7"x7" card base and matting layers. I cut a frame in the centre using Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circles, and then stamped the sentiment before embossing with Spellbinders A4 embossing folder Dainty Dots. I used 2 sizes of the circles to create a frame in navy card stock, this was then placed over the background that was created on watercolour paper with Lawn Fawns Snowy Backdrops, (this is also where the sentiment came from) I stamped in Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then coloured the background with Gansai Tambi watercolours in 3 shades of blue. The snowflakes and Christmas decorations are from 2 First Edition die sets that are exclusive to Hobbycraft here in the UK.
