Daughter & Sons' Christmas Cards

Hello my crafting friends, hope this finds you all well? I promised last week that I would show the Christmas cards I made for my Son & Daughter, sorry a bit delayed but here they are.

For my son's card I used some of the shaving foam technique for a background using Purple Aquatints and printed off one of the Christmas images from the House Mouse CD Collection along with the sentiment. I added the die cut 'Son' that was cut out of Red miri card.

For my Daughter's card I printed off an image from the House Mouse CD Collection along with a backing paper and sentiment to match, I covered the backing paper with a self adhesive sheet and coated it with Micro beads before matting it up onto Red miri card then added the word 'Daughter' which was also cut out of Red miri card.

Items Used:

Basic White and red card stock
Joanna Sheen House Mouse Triple CD Collection
Red Miri Card
Aquatints Purple
Joanna Sheen Signature Dies Son & Daughter
Shaving Foam
Creative Expressions Micro Beads

Thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx
