Cool Christmas


I was inspired to make some Christmas cards with this week's Less Is More challenge to use paper piecing.  I combined some lovely patterned paper from Lawn Fawn along with Uniko's dove which is one of my fave stamps:

I silver embossed the dove on to patterned paper and the card base.  I combined it with a sentiment from Clearly Besotted. 

As I had paper left over I went with the same idea but used a banner die to create a bit of visual interest.

Finally, whilst I was playing with my Lawn Fawn paper I used it with this My Favourite Things Christmas die.  Backed with acetate it is perfect for a shaker card.  I added a Uniko snowflake in the middle.  This is an easy make which would work in a heap of different colours.
I hope you like the blue and silver combo for Christmas!
Thanks for stopping by,
