Promise, I'll put something other than Christmas up again soon!! The top card was inspired by a fellow consultant who's name escapes me. The squares are from the ebony and ivory stamps set. The squares were embossed using the "wine" embossing powder and the ink used was once again Aged mahogany distress ink.
The second card has a white layered look. The cuttlebug was obviously used here for the white background as well as the baubles. The baubles have been coloured using the Fired brick distress ink and the blending tool (love that tool!). The sticky bling flourish has been used for the sparkly string and the "merry Christmas" words are from our mini messages Christmas set. The mini messages are fantastic as they have about 8 different sayings (sets are birthdays or Christmas) and they only cost $15 !! Bargin. Right, I"m off to make something that is NOT Christmas, although, I've just made a 5 projects quick workshop - Christmas cards that's actually quite nice. I might have to post that- it's a current Kaszazz workshop. I'll keep you posted.
