Little Christmas







Hi everyone and I hope your week is going well so far. I have set of cards to share today with the gorgeous new Little Christmas collection stamps Cozy Christmas Bear, Tilda with a cute lamb and Coco with present. They're all watercoloured with watercolour crayons and markers and then cut out with a circular nestabilities die.  

I've made circular shaped cards to give the impression of a Christmas bauble with a snowflake embossed front piece, a scalloped nestie circle behind the image, a punched snowflake and a DooHickey die cut snowflake. The embossing and all edges of the card have been swiped with iced spruce distress ink and I've added some sparkly pearly embellishments to the snowflakes and pretty wired ribbon. 

Tilda's Town have a challenge of vintage this week and I'm entering my card set into that.
