Happy Christmas(ish) Saturday,
Well Mr ND collected and we start our drive through Spain in the morning to, hopefully, arrive back on British soil Monday evening! If anyone wants to follow the progress just friend me on Facebook as I am going to try updating and checking in on the journey on there!
You will all be happy to hear that this is almost the last of Christmas in July! Today's project is a set of simple Christmas cards and tags as well as a box to keep them in. This is an idea I will expand on as we get nearer to Christmas. I love the idea of gifting people boxes of cards and Christmas cards are always welcome!
Now there are a lot of pictures of this one as there is little description. I simply die cut the centre filigree die from Sue Wilson's Umbria die set in white hammered card. All I then did was mount this onto mirror card in three different colours. These toppers are then mounted onto hand cut card blanks (12 x 12) in hammered card and a matching gem added to each corner. I have used Green, Red and Silver (how traditional can you get?)
The tags are made from hand cut tags at 8cm x 8cm when folded. I simply cut the die off the edge of the front flap creating the impression of a wreath. I then added small squares of the remnants of the mirror card on the back flap of the tag.

'tis the season stamp (random set)
The box is a simple 4cm tall box with the die cut into the centre of the lid. I added the same sentiment and a few More silver gems. simple...
...really simple so should be on tomorrow lol.
Especially for Mrs B who wanted a head start on the marathon of cutting some of my Christmas Projects sometimes need there will be a bonus post going on tonight at 6:30 giving a sneak peek of some of this years Christmas Projects, there will also be a new page appearing to house this called Christmas 2014 so keep an eye out!
