12 Weeks of Christmas–week 3

Good evening! I’m sorry that this post is late, it has just been one of those days.
Today I am going to share my first 5 designs for my monthly Christmas card club.  I really enjoy making these cards!  I keep them fairly simple as they need to be wast to reproduce and also 'post friendly' too so I don't use any big embellishments.  I do a lot of web browsing and sketching when planning these cards, but don't always note down the details, if you think any of my cards may be based on one of yours please let me know so I can give you credit.


 The colours for this first card are Baked Brown Sugar, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White and Soft Suede.  I have used the Ornament Keepsakes set which is on carryover from last year.


Colours in the second card are Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White and Chocolate Chip with a touch of Silver Glimmer paper.  The tree is stamped using Pennant Parade.


Another pennant card but this time using the punch and some lovely Coastal Cabana dsp teamed with Raspberry Ripple.  Super quick and easy!


 Apologies for this picture!  This card is based on a swap I received at a team training session in August, I think from a lady called Claire.  I've used the 'splodge' from Gorgeous Grunge and the Mosaic Madness set with it's coordinating punch.  Colours are Real Red, Gumball Green and Whisper White.


Finally a card using a super fun set called 'Happy Hour'  We used markers to colour in the individual parts then built the image up.  Texture from the Northern Flurries embossing folder finishes it off.
