Quick Christmas Makes

Evening Folks
Hope you are all well.  One more day to go through at work and then it's the weekend.  Yippee.  Mind you I have got lots of crafting to try and fit in at the weekend.  Still got quite a few cards to make, more presents to buy and wrap and all the food shopping.  Oh, I do like leaving things to the last minute, lol.

This is one of my quick christmas makes that I intend making quite a few of at the weekend.

I used my snowflake embossing folder to emboss some white card.  I then cut this into little squares which I mounted onto some glitter paper.  I then raided my toppers box as I have loads of christmas toppers that I have collected over the last couple of years.  A simple sentiment and some gems finished the card.

The best thing about making this was that all the items on it are bits of old stash that I have had for ages.  I have accumulated lots of little christmas toppers and this style of card is ideal for using them.  It is also an opportunity to use up scraps of glitter paper.

Here is another one using a different topper and colour of glitter paper.

Thanks for popping by and look forward to seeing what you think.
