A Masterboard Christmas

Hello sweet visitors and welcome to my blog.  Hope you are having a wonderful day!

A big welcome to my new followers too!!  Thank you so much for joining me.  I hope I can pass on a little inspiration now and then.

Today, I am sharing two more Christmas cards made with my Christmas Masterboard.  I really enjoy these Masterboards and am definitely going to do more of my cards this way.   It's a lot of fun  creating them and it saves using up my DP.  Although I still have so much of that I don't think I will ever get to use it up, LOL!!!

These two cards are almost identical so I thought I would share them together.
The poinsettias were made with a die from Poppy Crafts and the Pine Branch die is from Impression Obsession.

  The sentiment on Card 1 was printed, punched out and covered with an epoxy sticker ..
,, and on Card 2, I used a simple gold sticker.
Added a few prills and micro beads although I wasn't really happy with the result on card 1.  I think the colour is wrong but, once they are down, it's impossible to get them off again.
Was a bit happier with the result on card 2 .. but still, not quite what I wanted.
Should perhaps have used green.
Inside Card 1.
Inside Card 2.
Card 1 full frontal ..
.. and, Card 2.

Not quite sure about using the red cardstock base.  I think they may have looked better with a white base.  Still, I'm not unhappy with them so I guess they will do.

Have you started making your Christmas cards and decorations yet??  
Dare I say there are only about 8 weeks to go??  Scary isn't it??

Thank you for stopping by to take a look.  It's always so nice to have you visit and, whatever you are planning to do, make it a great day my friends.
Take care and God Bless.
Hugs xx


  1. lovely cards - loving the backgrounds - great idea , really special cards

  2. 8 weeks is scary, I really must start! Your cards are beautiful, I love your masterboard backgrounds, the poinsettias are gorgeous and the little touch of fabric with the prills and microbeads is such a lovely addition to these very elegant cards!

    I am with you on the DP, I really must try to break my habit of 'one to keep and stoke and one to use' - lol. Hugs, Anne xx

  3. Absolutely love this masterboard that you made! The colours and the poinsettia pattern are so versatile, as you've shown here by making a few changes you get two completely different cards! I love the punch of white with that poinsettia and the red poinsettia looks so pretty with the glittery edges! All the wonderful embellishments are so festive! I really gotta get me some of those prills, they look amazing how you add them for extra texture! Love this set!!

    It's been raining for several days now, making it difficult to crawl around on the ground with my camera. Guess today I will stick to taking photos of the colourful trees. lol. Have a great day my friend, sending hugs :)

  10. Your Masterboards are the perfect base to build your cards. They add so much light and shade and texture which enhances the toppings. Sounds like a cake huh! Hope you know what I mean. Gorgeous work and the prills looks fine on my monitor. I understand that reds can be hard to match, but you've nailed them. x
