Batch Baking.

It's Rudolph Day time again  and as I made 6 cards last time thought I had best keep up the momentum otherwise I won't keep up my tally. I have chosen a theme of blue cards and used  two freebies from magazines  to make them with. I used grey silver card blanks for them all. 
Paper, sentiment and topper by Jennifer Ellory  free from Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine
silver and navy  pearlescent papers from stash
pearls from stash

Freebies same as above card.
Silver pearlescent paper from stash along with pearls.

Happy Christmas satin ribbon from stash
Anita's Glitterations  in black  sentiment.

Freebie papers by Jennifer Ellory as above.
Die cutting  Tree stencil free with Simply Cards & Papercrafts.

Papers and die cut as above
sentiment is cut using Britania word  dies.

I really, really love this colour scheme!

I found an abandoned nest full of mallard eggs in the garden - must have got too chilled last night.....I feel so sad for the mother duck.....all that effort!

Notes by Nina said...

Fabulous set of cards, Thank you for joining us for Merry Monday.

Sarah said...

Oh dear, Mrs A, I'm going to run away and stand in the corner with my head hung in shame! You are sooo organised with your Christmas cards - I'm one of those terrible people who start their Christmas cards on the 1st Dec.

They are gorgeous cards, love the silver theme - it's fab.

Great projects in your posts below as well. Bad idea tho to have those particular tubes of crisps in our house - I eat them and get fat!!!!

Hope you've had a nice weekend,

Your 'batch baking' is absolutely yummy!! What a fabulous set of cards; love the blue to investigate them more closely...too pretty not to give them some more 'gazing and admiration'....
