Cards made at Art of Craft , December 2014

these first two I made in 15 mins each including the decoupage . You can get a production line going.
If you need to make a few. Cutting out several of the matting and layering elements at once is a good start.

These next two were made in under ten mins each.

Then I made a little gift box using Bellissimo Christmas as above 2 cards

Then if you are sick of Christmas cards , how about the lovely new capsule range 
French Lavender. These following cards are adapted from the December magazine.

Dragons lair December challenge.

This adorable Christmas elf is free on dragons lair to people who join the site & promise to make and post a card using the image before the end of December.

I started with an 8x8 stepper card. The front fold has a lovely light gold glitter
Card base with a punched red border. This was topped with a red glitter

The back is covered with an embossed and inked checked paper.

The cute image is matted onto red. Little elf girl is decoupaged
And glittered with red stickles. 

I also printed out the image much smaller to make a matching gift card
