Getting ready for CHRISTMAS!

Well, it's been way too long! I can't really believe that Thanksgiving is over and we're heading rapidly towards Christmas. I need to get myself moving on my Card-Making .... here's a quick start with the Hearts Come Home bundle. I love, love, love this set with the houses framelits. Perfect for shadow cards ....

 I made a simple shadow box. 2 pieces of 4.25x 6.24 scored at 3/4" and 5.5". I just folded the edges in and glued the 2 pieces together. The back of the card has a sheet of glimmer paper (I used the silver and the champagne) the Church at the front is attached to the inner oval with dimensionals, then the back row of houses is also attached with dimensionals except I layered 2 up to make it sit a little higher on the back-side.

I made one with Cherry Cobbler too, but the white ones remain my favourites.

I made up some gift boxes too. This is some older, retired cardstock which came embossed with different patterns. I brayered 2 sheets with Alway Artichoke ink, it gives it a shaded/faded look which I like.
