Merry Christmas: three christmas cards

Good morning friends and followers!

I wanted to wish you all a merry christmas.
We will spend the day making the last preparations for tomorrow. In Norway we celebrate christmas on the 24th. So by tonight everything must be ready:)

I am so lucky to have you taking time out of your busy lives to stop by my blog and leave me lots of lovely comments every week!  You really encourage me to continue to post and explore new ideas! I love visiting your blogs, you all inspire me so much! Thank you so much!

Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas! 
Hope you will have a wonderful time with your loved ones!

I made these cards for Ett Trykk Magazine earlier this year,  (I actually made these in july!) I thought I'd show them to you today:

The design papers are Maja Design, sentiment stamps by Norsk Stempelblad AS, Postmark stamps are Kort og Godt. 
Flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts, Hearts by Prima, Pearls are Kort og Godt – Halvperler, the gorgeous lace is from the Live and Love Craft store.
Dies used are all Spellbinders.

I colored this Tilda with my Copics. Colors used: 
Skin: E13-11-00-00 (Cheeks E93), Hair: E29-27-25-23-21, W7, Dress: B99-97-95-93-91, Wings and tights: W7-5-3-1-00, E44-43-42-41. Shadows: W5-3-1-00

 The papers are by Maja Design, flowers and berries are Kort og Godt, The sentiments are Norsk Stempelblad AS  and the postmark stamp is by Kort go Godt.

  Dies by Cheery Lynn Designs. I used my Silhouette Cameo for the shape of the card. 


 Here's a closeup of the image. I colored the Magnolia Snowy Tilda, with distress markers and pads. I used frontage, shabby white, around the image to get that snowy feel to it.

My final card today is a vintage one. I went all crazy with the frantage on this, lol.
Sentiment stamps by Norsk Stempelblad AS, desingpapers are 
Pion Design.
The Frantage is by Stampendous Shabby White, The branches and berries are by Kort og Godt, the lace is from the  Live and Love craft store, and image by Pion Desing. The red berries are by Magnolia, I used lots of dies too: 
Spellbinders, Marianne design and Go create. I also used a Martha Stewart edge punch.. 


Here's a closeup of the poinsettia with lots of frontage on it:)

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Wishing you a magical christmas!
lots of hugs,
