Simply...

...wing Bling it !!!

Despite all my good intentions to be more organised with my Christmas cards this year, time has run away from me yet again. So I thought it was time to make a dent in the lacking numbers.

This lovely digital set of images from Nicecrane designs are fabulous...
...and so adaptable for Christmas cards or notelets.
As the images all have a blue/grey tint to them, I grabbed the following stash...
 ...smooth white CS, aqua glitter card and some aqua gems.
I cut the CS to A5 then folded in half before running the front of the card through my Big Shot...
...using a "Couture Creations" embossing folder called 'Moonlit Berries'.
The images were printed and trimmed...
...and some "Cosmic Shimmer" twinkles applied to the bows on the ladies hats.
I cut a snowflake from the glitter card using a DoCrafts punch (the punch didn't like the glitter card and I ended up banging the punch on the ground to release the cut-out - should have stuck with my dies)...
 ...the snowflake was added to the card and then I used some gems to pick out some of the embossed berries.
This is the finished card...
...fairly quick and simple (if you don't have to fight with a punch - LOL) and a way to boost the numbers of Christmas cards you have ready before the posting deadline.

If you are fast running out of time, don't panic - pop over to the Nicecrane Design site and grab some lovely seasonal images and if you are stuck for some inspiration, hop over to the Nicecrane blog as there are some wonderful Christmas ideas over there........................................................
