Merry Christmas

Good morning all.

Just realised this is my 1200th post....gosh that's a lot of crafting!

Another simple Christmas card to share today.

Stamps all from Clearly Besotted (another recent purchase) all stamped with versamark and heat embossed with silver EP. Finished with some silver cord. I had the bright idea of embossing the star with gold EP.....pity I didn't also think to put the excess silver back in it's tub first lol. Image is matted onto silver mirri card then popped up on foam tape for dimension.
Unfortunately the photos aren't picking up any of the shine on the embossing.

All finished inside and another flat one.
I don't actually know why I'm making loads of flat cards as I have several books of large 2nd class stamps left over from last year to be used up!!

Challenges entered:
Allsorts - embossing
Clearly Besotted - Christmas
Stamplorations - stamps and embossing
CHNC Extra - anything Christmas goes
CAS on Sunday - emboss it
Fairytale Stampers - something new (stamp)


  1. This is a fabulous Christmas card Carol, I love silver and white.

  2. Another lovely CAS card Carol. Like you I have quite a lot of Large 2nd Class stamps but I decided to keep my Christmas cards as flat as possible so that I can use the more expensive stamps for all the lovely raised birthday cards etc. Have a good day. Christine xx
