Merry Christmas and Final Week for Unstampabelles challenge

 Hello Peeps

Sorry this is up late - I took a few days off! I hope you all had a great Christmas if you celebrate it - and that the New Year will be fun and full of much better things than this one has been.

I made a couple of cards for Christmas

This first one is using an SU die and embossing folder, some scrap sparkle card and sentiments from Uniquely Creative. Oh, and some bling. Mustn't forget the bling. 
I cut a rectangle in the top of the topper - then I embossed the topper. 
I die cut the Santa image and positioned it behind the empty rectangle.
Then I put the glitter paper behind that. I added the sentiment and bling and then put the topper on a card. Done. 

This one uses an image from Uniquely creative behind the Santa but is basically made the same way as above. I made a few of these as my cards this year - I had a system going and could make 10 in under an hour. 

This one I made using s similar technique - except here I diecut the image three times across a piece of card and then made this the topper over a background. No embossing here but bling and sentiment strips. The background was DP from SU (2020) and I just smooched ink on it change from white to this. I added the underlay of aqua before putting the whole onto a card. 

This one had a different piece of DP and some gold card but is basically the same card.
I made this one in various colourways about a dozen times. 
I used this for Unstampabelles latest challenge.

This one was super easy but had a stamp - again I set up a system and made quite a few.  Again it was an idea from Pinterest. A strip of glitter with a flag ending, a diecut star, some bling and a stamp. The stamp press was most useful here. I stamped directly onto my actual card. 

A switch between the card used for the pennant and the star changed the look beautifully. 

See you soon!
Have a safe New Year.
