Three more Christmas cards

 Hi there.   Today I have a couple of Christmas cards to share.  These were made over the time I had off.  

My first one uses a little gel press focal image. 

I was playing with a circle gel plate and different mediums.  I tried inks and some acyrlic paints.  This one used some Jo Sonya paints.  I brayered the paint and then used a Gina K stamp (Holiday Tapestry) to rempove some of the paint before pulling a print.  I then used a circle die to cut it out.    I used one of the sentiments from the stamp set to make a the panel.  I used an embossing folder to add some texture to the background.   There are a few other circle backgrounds... but this was my favourite.  

Card Two - started with some bits on my desk.  

The plaid background was made a long time ago... It's a Catherine Pooler stamp inked in some CP ink. The die cut is a Catherine Pooler one as well that I had die cut last week and never used.   I used an Altenew stamp and die set - Sophisticated Wreath.  I used a variety of Altenew inks.  I stamped the base layer straight onto the panel and then stamped the die cut the flowers and leaves.   I added a Christmas sentiment and some red gems.  

And my last one I did yesterday after looking through my patterned paper packs for Christmas papers

I used Gina K Master Layouts to cut my papers and the layers.  I wanted some gold layers so added some washi tape around the edges of the layers.  The sentiment is a Lily of the Valley digital sentiment.  I printed the entire page of sentiments and trimmed them out.   I used an older wooden stamp Poinsettia.  It is from a now defunct NZ coy.  I gold embossed it on vellum and then stamped it on red card.  I fussy cut and layered together.  All in all a CAS card.  

thanks for stopping by.  Take care out there.

Three beautiful Christmas cards, Dawn - just love each one! Great gelli print on card one, fabulous wreath on card two, and fun use of patterned papers on card three! Great idea to use washi to get a metallic border!!
