WOW Christmas!

Challenges

Oldie But Goodie - Embossing (Old Peel-Offs/Stamp)
Fab 'N' Funky (182) - Stickers/Peel-Offs
ABC Christmas - Quick Cards
Sister Act (21) - Anything Goes
Allsorts (220) - Use Acetate

Here are a couple of quick Christmas cards I have made.  Both have a white on white and snowflake theme.

For the first card I started by die-cutting a snowflake aperture in the centre of my base card.  After I stamped the sentiment through the aperture, I embossed the card and added acetate to the back of the aperture.  I then die-cut some snowflakes, sprayed with glue and covered with glitter.  I then layered them and attached to my card adding a gem to the centres.  Finally, I added some small peel-off snowflakes to the acetate.

For the second card I simply added some die-cut ivy with a layered snowflake on top.  A peel-off sentiment and gem finishes the card.  Both cards were quick and easy to make.  Hope you like them, thanks for looking.
