Blue & White Christmas

Hello creative people, I hope you had a great week.

I have more Christmas designs to show you that are flat for easier mailing.  This group of cards were created from one large master background sheet created with Dylusions Inks and Glimmermist.

I won't go into details on each of these cards but you can see that I used different stamps on most of the backgrounds and embellished with white die cuts.  All dies are by Memory Box which I was determined to use as they have been sitting in their folders for a while. 










  

This last one isn't quite as blue, with more of the fuchsia ink showing :)


Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend,
Shirley

Wonderful designs Shirley and love the background which you have used on all the cards but with beautiful variety of the same tones. I love the added stamping to the backgrounds and the MB dies cut in white really show up boldly against the darker backgrounds. If I was on your Christmas list I would love to receive any one of these gorgeous cards! Have a good weekend. x
