Two Christmas cards this time using a mix of dies and stencils from spellbinders, Britannia and memory box .
I used this card by Pam for inspiration and although I didn't have the exact dies I tried to improvise.
For my first card I used a memory box stencil as a base layer for my card on top of a white base card. I haven't yet used my stencils in any conventional way by colouring through them but am loving using them for embossing.
I used fancy music border cut in glossy black card to create my musical backdrop.
I used Eliana bauble again from memory box,cut it twice and inlaid one with the other.
I used spellbinders poinsettia and used 3 yellow pearls for the centre.
No sentiment on this card as the stencilled background says merry Christmas though I could add a sentiment later not sure yet.
For my second card I decided to hand draw my music score and just used the notes from fancy music border , no background this time other than the music. After looking at my photos I need to fill the gap in my treble clef.
I ued the remaining pieces of my bauble die-cuts and pointsettia dies but this time added a Britania die cut 'seasons greetings'.
I quite like both cards but think the stencil embossed backing just adds that little bit of Christmas magic.
