I have been most disorganised this month in relation to my cardmaking - I confess I haven't even started my Christmas cards for this year - but I am hoping to make headway this week (hubby goes back to work and I can get down to some serious crafting ;-))

Now for my DT cards - I confess, these are not new cards - they are put forward as inspiration for not using stamps on Christmas Cards - I wish to highlight punches and die-cuts this month ;-)
Square Red cardstock as a base, layered with Gold Shimmer cardstock cut out with Cuttlebug and Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Pendant, holly leaves punched out from two different shades of green, snowflakes punched out from white pearl paper and glued in a circle, clear and red gemstones added for some 'bling', gold peel-off stickers added to corners. 

This is not my design, I was inspired by
 Hunnybunny cards  many years ago ;-)

All items used in this card, except the punches, are from BlueEdge Crafts.
