Jingle Joy and Noel Tags

As promised on yesterday's blog here are some more of my workshop cards.  These 3 designs are based on a simple stamp stick with the Striped emboss folder giving a texture to the background of two of the designs.  The third as the Top Note die shapes layered in two colours for a contrast.
I used the emboss folder for vertical stripes on the Joy card and horizontally on the Noel card. For both I embossed twice leaving a plain flat band in the middle section of the card for effect. 

The lettering for both cards is the Broadsheet Alphabet, this is such a great lettering set.  It is fantastic for initials on stationery or project items or dressed up as I have done for Christmas cheer on cards.  The lettering has perfect places to add jewels or pearls for those extra special touches.                                    

Christmas trees made simple with the little Pennants Parade stamp set finishes off the Joy card with it's Christmas theme and is also used for the three trees again. The set even includes the mini star for the top of the tree and the tree pot, all that's missing is the fairy! All the pieces for the Joy card were easily cut using the Square punch and then mounted again on coloured card as borders. The three trees on the third card were punched with the co-ordinating Pennants Builder Punch - easy cutting - I love it!

For the Noel card too I needed to add to the punched Tags (X-Large Tag Punch) so I used the holly from the 'Make a Mitten' set from this Autumn/Winter's catalogue.  I purposely set the tags at a slight angle from one another as a contrast to the straight lines of the Joy card. 
If you like these cards, why not come along to my next workshops on either Thursday 8th November or Thursday 6th December to make some yourself!
Hope to see you soon
