A Couple of Quick Christmas cards

Well it seems that I have neglected my blog since I have started back to work and my card making so here are a couple of cards I made last night.  I hope you like them.

My first card has been made using Kanban black glitter card, Kanban snowman stamped image from the Winter Wonderland collection and the snowflake border has been punched using the EK for success snowflake deep border punch.

A word of warning if purchasing one of these punches make sure that the snowflake that sticks out cuts out properly as the first stamp I purchased had a chunk of metal missing so it wasn't cutting properly.  When I took it back to the shop and we went through the rest of the punches there was another like it so there must be a batch that are faulty.

This second card has been made using the same stamp set as above and using the same border punch.  This time I cut the snowflakes out of the side of the card so I have a fancy border and then sponged through to the back of the card with a blue distress ink.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and for any comments you may like to leave.

Happy crafting
