A Christmas Wish!

Good Afternoon!

INGREDIENTS -
Old Christmas Card
Trimcraft Design Paper
Gold Cardstock
Cheesecloth & Gold Glitter Organza Ribbon
Berries & Prisma Embellishments
Adhesive Pearls

A Quick & Simple Christmas Bear!

Good Afternoon!
I apologise in advance for another Christmas card, I'm becoming a tad obsessed with the season!
Today's card is one that I made this morning in a rather quick and simple style. Perfect for if you need a batch of cards but still want to give them some layers! 
I dug out this older stamped image that was stored away as I thought it'd go perfectly with a gold star embellishment that I've had for many years stashed away in a pot.

INGREDIENTS -
LOTV Stamp
LOTV Sentiment Stamp
Magnolia Paper
Prisma Gold Star Embellishment & Doodlebug Sprinkles
Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black (originally used when I stamped the image)
