Some Christmas Cards

I decided to mix up my crafting a bit and I created two similar Christmas cards with some of the products I have recently purchased. I used the Create and Craft Die-Lectables - Christmas Wreath and BowCraftwell Cut'n'Boss Machine (but if you are shopping today, the better option is Craftwell Teresa Collins Cut n Boss Die Cutting Machine), Tattered Lace Seasons Greetings Embossing Folder Set - Folder, 2 Borders and Corners and Sizzix Big Shot (I have had this machine forever - it is the red version) on both cards. I used the Big Shot to control some of my embossing by being able to reverse the direction of the "sandwich" mid-emboss.

On this card I used one layer of cardstock for the wreath. I also used Create and Craft Pack of Single Sided 50 A4 Mirror Board to mat the focal panel. The second embossing folder is from Sizzix. I think it was one that was included with the Sizzix Texture Boutique Embossing Machine, but I do not remember the name of the pattern.

On this card I cut the wreath a second time from a darker cardstock and layered under the light color. The embossing folder is also from Sizzix, but I do not remember the name.

The card bases and cardstock are from my stash. I used CTMH 3L® E-Z Dots® Adhesive (Z3022) and Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive to assemble my cards.
