Christmas cards for 2018

Good morning everyone,
Well I`m carrying on making Christmas cards..ready for 2018..
I purchased DL size envelopes last year and decided about time I made cards to fit them.

This red mirri / white card ..beautiful border of snowflakes Joy designs "Winter Wishes".
White panel I have embossed with my old Cuttlebug folder. 
Sheena Douglass .."Snowflakes" die..cut in white and shadow in red.
Finished with pearl snowflakes.

Card 2.
Bottom panel..old Memory Box Tree landscape border die, shaded with distress bundled sage ink.
Sheena Douglass.. "Winter" die.. Debbie Moore "Life Quotes" stamp set. 
Poppystamps "Star Of Wonder" die.

Memory Box. "Graceful Stag Collage"  has been cut in this panel, embossed in the same folder as above ..then edge with Krylon gold pen..I have cut a separate stag and adhered to the one in the panel. 
Background I have inked with Oxide inks blue/purple onto the card base.
my stag panel adhered onto this.
Creative Expressions "Winter Wonderland" CED3097 sentiment. I have used the gold Krylon pen.
Two red "Cheery Cardinals" Poppystamps.
finished with Pinflair "Snow Dust".

Thank you for stopping by Pam x.
Will be back Saturday  23rd ..

Your cards are stunning, Pam, my favourite is the white on white one. So lovely to see DL card, I rarely think to make one. I've started on my 2018 Christmas cards too, I'm determined to keep ahead again next year so there's no last minute rush. xx

Stunning ideas Pam I have done the same this year, I seem to have amassed loads of envelopes this size and run out of my trusty 6in x 6in ones. Love your idea, especially the snowflakes, all three are gorgeous though xxx

Beautiful cards.

Good morning Pam. These cards are gorgeous. I'm not familiar with the DL term so don't actually know what size it is. I only finished my cards yesterday and now have to hope that someone visits today so that I can get them posted. I too intend to start early for next year and I do have quite a number of cut-outs left over so perhaps I've already started ha ha. Wish you a very Happy Christmas.

I love this shape of card, it's my favourite! That snowflake border die cut is divine, and that deer with the birds on his antlers has captured my heart! White on white is so beautiful, and all of your designs are just gorgeous! Sending Christmas hugs :)

Ohhhhh, Pam! I love this size card, all long and lean, and you have the most beautiful dies to decorate them. You always leave me in awe!

Anne said...

Haha Pam you must be the first person to have got started on your 2018 Christmas cards, that made me smile!!
Love the DL for a change, I used to make these all the time before I moved onto square ones and forgot how nice they look.
Love how you've used the dies, you make me want to buy dies that I would have bypassed before!
Have a wonderful Christmas
