Take 2 stamps

Today's set of cards are some quick and easy Christmas cards. They are variations on a colourway and all use the same stamps. The colours are taken from this weeks Colour Create Challenge - Burgundy, Gold, Green and Cream. The optional extra on the challenge is to add some dimension so I popped out the trees with 3d foam pads.

The first card uses burgundy as the main colour with stamping done in Pirate Gold embossing powder. I think this one looks rather rich.

The second card has gold for the card blank on which the swirl was embossed with clear embossing powder. The background behind the trees was made with alcohol inks.

The final card is a cream base that has been embossed once again and a little bit of glitter glue was added to the middle tree.

Stamps Used:
Papermania Joyeux Noel clear stamp set
Fiscars Continuous Stamp - Elegant VineSwirl
Papermania - PMA10038 Merry Christmas

I'm entering these into the following challenges:
Top Tip Tuesday - Layer it up
Crafting When We Can - it's Christmas almost
Stamptacular - You Choose

Please take a look at the wonderful creations that the rest of the Colour Create Design team have created.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
