My christmas crackers

Every year I buy cheap crackers and put my own gifts in, minature bottles of perfume, cufflinks, jewellery and nice chocolates. This is the picture of them straight out of the box

The finished crackers. i have decorated them with my borderabilities in cream and gold papers, tied nice gold tinsel round them and added toppers made from gold card cut from oval nestabilities, I added gold holly leaves (I bought a big bag years ago from lakeland) and little snowflakes which were from a christmas garland I cut up.

It's a side step again!

Inspiration was lacking at the last minute so all my cards have ended up as a variation on a theme - that being my favorite side step! I have embossed the mirri car with the swirls embossing folder and added gems and glitter

vintage santa

A4 size side step card. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the gold card, I have added gem stones and glamour dust although they are not showing up too well.

holly stamped card

here you go nettie, your christmas card. I stamped the background with a tiny holly stamp and stamp pens, it took me ages! LOL Each little spring was stamped individually. Then I mat and layered my circle nesties and stamped a greeting. there are also touches of glitter and gems that do not show up very well.
