First Christmas Cards 2017.


Good morning friends and visitors.. hope you have the sunny weather with you today! great washing drying day with this wind..


These are my first Christmas cards this year  2017.. 3D Christmas Embossing folders..






Three cards using Two 5"x7" Embossing Folders.."Pretty Poinsettia Frame" & "Holly & Ivy" 



Holly & Ivy..



I have made these 3 frames the same..Spellbinders Grand Rectangle for the white and spellbinder with Crea-Nest-Lies XXL Stitched Rectangles for the red! as this made a perfect size frame for these folders.

I added colour with Distress Markers..Dress My Craft  "Sparkling Dust"
Nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss White..few random dots.




Pretty Poinsettia..

These next two card have been made the same..
I have embossed two folders for each card!!! 
Cut the two flower designs away and layered onto the main embossed card for dimensions



I have used my Distress Markers in red and green..just in the debossed area of the Poinsettias, I did`nt want heavy red colour on them!! Not sure if I like or not...

Yvonne Creations...Merry Christmas ..here  

Centre of the three cards..  7.1/2" x 6" finished card size.


Thank you for stopping by today...Pam x

Marie said...

They are lovely Pam but with my reduced vision I don't do well with embossing . I may have another try after seeing your cards with the help of my magnifier.
Thank you for sharing.

Elegant Christmas cards. I especially like the last one where you used the Distressed Markers in red and green on the poinsettias. Thanks for sharing.

Donna Ellis said...

They are beautiful, Pam! I love your white on white loveliness, with the hint of red to bring out a special festiveness in each one. The embossing folders are BEAUTIFULLY SCULPTED and the glitter makes them come alive! Wishing you a great week-end, my friend. hugs, de

PS. I have a question - my husband and I generally watch and thoroughly enjoy - the Masterpiece Theater, which mainly is composed of UK historical eras and actors. Do you know if it is as popular there? Or if it is produced mainly for an American audience? xx
