A Really Quick One!

Good Morning All and a very Happy Thursday!

I know how many Christmas cards we need to make and with that in mind, I thought I'd show you a really quick and easy one this week.

So, let's get started.....

Cut a square of Coconut White card to size and emboss with the A4 Tied Holly Folder.
Matt and layer onto Foundations Ruby Card.

Ink up the 2 Turtle Doves from the John Lockwood 12 Days of Christmas stamp set with Perfect Medium Ink.  Stamp onto Coconut White card 3 times and heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Bright Metallic Gold Powder.
Cut out then matt and layer into squares of the Ruby card.
Attach to the main card with 3d foam pads.

Die cut the Festive Collection-Dove of Peace twice, one in white card and one in Ruby.
Ink up the tree from the 12 Days of Christmas-Partridge in a Pear Tree set of stamps with Perfect Medium and stamp over the white Dove.  Heat emboss with the gold powder.
Glue the ruby dove into position then add the white one, slightly offset, with 3d foam pads.

And there's the finished card!

It would look lovely with blue card and silver embossing powder as well.  I think it's a handy card for batch card making, hope you agree!

Well, that's all for this week....I'm going non-Christmassy next week!
Don't forget to watch the new craft channel with John Lockwood, Julia Watts and all your favourites!

Until next time, have a happy, crafty week!
