Quick Christmas Cards by Alison Bevis

#couturecreationsaus #ultimatecrafts
Hello, it's me...Alison
I looked at all of those beautiful 
Background Gallery dies
and couldn't pick just one

Sometimes we just need a quick card, or a bunch of quick Christmas cards?

Then I thought... I could stamp a couple of backgrounds, have a couple of Glitter Papers for backgrounds and each card should have a die from the Collection and a simple sentiment!!

I started by squeezing a little of the Liquid Drops 3d Pearls onto my Craft Sheet,
pressed the 'Starry' half of the 'Starry Mosaic' from the Background Textures 2 Stamp set,
and then stamped onto the front of my square card - easy!


By lifting the stamp quickly you also get a little 3d texture which is a bonus!


It doesn't have to be PERFECT 
and each time you stamp it is a little different?
There is a lovely sheen from the Liquid Drops - very pretty!!


The matching die 'Starry Eyed' was diecut in white then inked black -
how good is it that the stamp and die match!!

Then I thought I was being a little nifty, 
by adding a few colours onto the Craft Sheet


and stamping the 'Mosaic' half of the Starry Mosaic Stamp set


I have plans to stamp with the Liquid Drops in my Art journal too!!
The 'Mosaic' matching die was also cut in white cardstock and inked black
and a simple sentiment foam mounted.


Did you know Couture Creations Glitter Paper comes in a pack of 10 assorted colours?


Just by punching the corners of your cards and layers it adds a softness - 
The 'Wire and Oil' Stamp set compliments the 'Oil Paint' die perfectly!!


The Silver is quite elegant and would make a lovely Wedding card.
There is also a matching stamp set - Jewelled Lattice!!


It is very important to adhere all parts of the die cut onto the card front.


The gold is quite festive, don't you think?


Perhaps you prefer traditional red?


Maybe you have a friend who likes pinks and purples... even at Christmas!!


The 'Floral Lattice' die also has a matching stamp set - Jewelled Lattice,
isn't it so pretty!!


Hooray!! I have 10 Christmas cards ready to send on the 1st of December!!

Hope you'll have a go at stamping with your Liquid Drops or maybe your Glitzin Glamour Glitter glue on dark cardstock?
Or maybe you'll make a stack of simple cards to have in your stash
