Four more for Christmas

Here are four more Christmas cards, a bit different to the others I've done :)

This one uses the cuttlebug Holly embossing folder, which I cut some leaves from, painted silver, and gave a pewter effect with black paint over that. The greeting is from Stamp-It.

Simple patchwork effect using Basic Grey papers, and some machine stitching.

That cute House Mouse stamp again :)

And I think this is my favourite, 12 squares of card, all covered in foil, carefully placed in the Holly embossing folder, embossed, and then black paint used on each square for a pewter effect. It was like assembling a puzzle, putting it on the card. The greeting was done on my computer then embossed in Platinum embossing powder, and coloured in with black pen.

Hi Hope, thanks so much for dropping by my blog and for your lovely comments! I just adore your cards and particularly love the technique you've used for the pewter look! I'll have to try that myself some time! Have a wonderful Festive season!
