Frosty Festivities Card Inspiration

As I have previously mentioned there was a shopping trolley full of tinsel fueled inspiration over at Jennifer Grace Creates Frosty Festivities last weekend.  Today I have taken that inspiration and finally got round to making some Christmas Cards.

Each month over at SJ Crafts Blog there has been '6 cards on the 6th' and each month I mean to get on with creating cards as they are always left to the last minute each year.  So combining the inspiration from Jennifers Frosty Festivities and the encouragement from SJ and her design team here are my cards....

These are inspired by 'add a little frosting' and feature die cut glittered trees (a freebie die from a recent papercrafting magazine) and small gemstones.


Here are all 6 and you can probably just make out the back ones which had the same shape used for the red and green paper layers using my Spellbinders nesting dies.  


Unfortunately I somehow got one die stuck in the Cuttlebug and this is how it ended up.....


(not sure what I did???!!!) .....so a little sad that I can't make anything with that die again!

I then went for some 'red and blue' inspiration and made these 3 cards


and then another 3...

So I am really chuffed to have 12 Christmas Cards  (I am entereing SJ's 6 cards on the 6th twice!!)and 2 single LO's and " DLO's all inspired by Jennifer thank you xxx

  8. Well done - and what a great freebie die that lovely tree was. Wonder if they are still in the shops? Shame about the other die though ... something for your Xmas list perhaps?!

  9. Awesome cards! I really love the blue and red combo. So sorry about your damaged die. I have some thin dies like that going through my Cuttlebug. You've warned me to be extra careful now! :)
