Christmas Cards 2018 - #3

Hello sweet visitors and welcome to my blog!! 

Can you believe it is 2019? 
I know I can't.  Don't know why but time just seems to fly by so much more quickly nowadays!  I would like to wish you all a very Happy and Healthy 2019!  I do hope, this year doesn't fly past me as quickly  as the last one did!!  LOL!!

I haven't been here for ages it seems and I'm sorry I haven't been around to visit your blogs lately, but  I've been quite busy with family coming to stay over the Christmas holidays.  I decided that, while they were here, I would take a bit of a break from all my social media.  So, now I'm back, and looking forward to catching up with what everyone's been up to.

 To start my blogging year off, I thought I would share a few more of my 2018 Christmas cards.  I really don't have anything else to share at this point, so I'm glad I haven't shown these yet.


In my previous posts I explained that my Christmas cards were all made with the same elements.  Same paper collections, same embellies and just a couple of different designs.  I found it was so much easier to get them done by doing it this way and, although it's all the same supplies, they each still have a different look.
I won't bombard you with too many photos, just a few shots of each and I'll try not to bore you too much with the processes either, as I explained a fair bit of that already in my previous Christmas posts.

CARD 1
I layered a piece of gauze under each of the flower clusters and these first two cards have a piece of lace layered in as well.


Card 2
All the branches had their ends embosssed in gold and I also embossed the edges of the sentiments in the same way.

Card 3


I think this might be the only card where I didn't emboss the edges of the sentiment.

 Card 4



Card 5


So, there you have it.  I do have more cards that I haven't yet shown you but, I think I've probably bombarded you enough with my Christmas cards so I will keep those in hand, for now at least.

I'd just like to thank you all for your visits and lovely comments over the previous year and, again, to wish you all the very best for this year.  Lots of happiness, the best of health and all the love your heart can hold.

Take care, stay safe and God Bless.
