Festive Friday - Winter Foliage

 Happy FriYAY! 

I think I am more ready for the weekend than The Beans - haha! It's been a long week getting used to an early start routine again and I didn't think them starting 10 mins earlier would make much of a difference. How wrong I was on that front! 

I shouldn't complain too much as I get a peaceful night off as they go to swimming lessons and then stay over with the grandparents till tomorrow. That means more crafty time for me - woohoo! 

I did however find some time earlier to make a little teeny tiny dent in my Christmas cards crafting and made a couple using my favourite Winter Foliage and sentiments from Christmas Wishes.

First up is this simple holly wreath I have created using the holly leaves from Winter Foliage. This clear stamp set does have Designer Dies to match, that hopefully will be back in stock soon. But today I quite enjoyed sitting and fussy cutting them out. 

I drew round a circle die so I could stamp and place the leaves in a fairly nice circle. I then stamped the sentiment from Christmas Wishes which is quite apt for this design.

My second card today I used all of the stamps from Winter Foliage to create another CAS design. Which had less fussy cutting and was a fairly quick card to put together. 

I rarely make the same card twice, but just in case I run out of time making different Christmas cards or loose the mojo, I have a design or two I can turn to and whip up a few. What about you, do you create batches of all the same designs or are all your Christmas cards different?

It's been a muggy, thundery, rainy day here in the North East, so not quite the Christmas card making weather, but I still had fun anyway!
