Let It Snow!! - Two Cards for St Lukes Charity Challenge

Hello lovely bloggers!  I'm late posting tonight, and because of the drab, dreary and miserable weather here in West Yorkshire today, my photo's didn't turn out too good.

I've made these cards for the St. Lukes Charity Card Challenge. The challenge is to make a Christmas card.  I need to get them off in the post this week, along with a few others I've made for such a wonderful charity.  


For my first card I used several layers from the Spellbinder Fleur Di Lis set.  Before layering, I rubbed clear VersaMark all over them and then sprinkled Kaleidoscope EP by Stampendous, then heat embossed. I had to lie my cards flat to to take the photo's, to show the effect of the beautiful EP.  The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat.
For my second card, I punched out lots of snowflakes and covered them with Glamour Dust, then arranged them at an angle across the card front.  This time, I used the largest die from the Spellbinder Ironwork Motifs set, (it makes a beautiful snowflake).  I did exactly the same technique with the EP as my first card.  For the center, I used a sentiment from Pink Petticoat, punched it out with a 2" circle punch, then went around the edge with Glamour Dust.
Thank You for stopping by!
Have A Great Day! xx
