Seasons of Joy!

Morning all. A couple of quick cards to show you today that I have made recently with my most recent SU purchase the 'Seasons of Joy' set {available from the wonderful Jules}! I just love this set and it perfect for making all those bulk christmas cards.

I have gone with a choc chip, Kraft and white colour theme and whilst I recognise these are not traditional christmas colours I think they look very alternative and elegant together (although my OH would disagree, he doesn't like the colours, he's a more traditional red and green kinda man! Lol}!

Again I have used no DP on either of these cards, but instead have used the 'Sparkling' SU Jumbo wheel to create the background pattern. I have embossed the main images on both cards with white embossing powder, I love the effect this gives, so striking on the choc chip CS.


Images: Seasons of Joy set from SU. Stamped in white ink and embossed with white powder

CS: SU Choc chip and Kraft

Sentiment: Best Yet set SU

Tools: Oval nesties, 'sparkling' jumbo SU wheel, xcut snowflake punch, EK Success 'Dotted Wave' border punch, Scalloped SU border punch, New cuttlebug embossing folder 'Kars Snowflakes'

Misc: adhesive pearl and gems from papermania, ribbon from stash

I also want to enter these two cards over at this weeks Secret Crafter Challenge. I have obviously chosen the winter season!

Thanks for all your well wishes for my graduation. It went really well yesterday and we all had a fab day. Although it did rain all day so I couldn't get very good pictures. I am still trying to sort through them on my computer but I will post some at the weekend I promise.

Thanks for stopping by today and for all the comments you leave me. Have a great day everyone {careful you don't get blown away! Lol}!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
