Christmas Blues

I thought I'd have a change from red and green, much as I love them.

I do like navy on a Christmas card, so did these two.

I used the Cuttlebug Winter village embossing folder on white linen card.

The main card is navy linen.

I curved the bottom of the card with my Rotatrim hand-held cutter,

(Based on an idea I got from one of Jennifer's cards).

then added Glamour Dust for sparkle.

The edge of the navy matt was done with the Threading Water border punch.

I think this one needs no explanation. :0

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Viv, love these cards, I do like the Threading Water punch, not seen that one before.

You've done a great job there Viv ..... The colours are just purfect and that ribbon finishes the first card off as does the punched detail on the second one. (I really must try and get to grips with my hand cutter thingy)

Love Pam xx

I love these cards. So elegant. I really like their simplicity and the monochromatic color scheme.
