Secret Santa Cards - Season of Joy

A group of us decided to take part in a secret Santa Christmas card exchange. I have now posted these to the recipients so I hope it's OK to post photos of them on here now.

The first card is a twisted easel card. These are simple to make and they are great as they fold flat so it is easy to post them too. The base card is made out of Real Red card stock and I stamped all of the images in Real Red too. A piece of whisper white card stock was embossed using an embossing folder and all the stamps came from the Season Of Joy stamp set with the message from the Contempo Christmas set.

A view from the front.

The folded card.
It will fold flatter to go in the envelope but it kept popping up for the photo.

The second card was also stamped using the Season of Joy stamp set and the message was from the Contempo Christmas set. The Old Olive card base was stamped in Old Olive and the Poinsettia was stamped in Real Red.  Two of the poinsettias were glued directly to the Whisper White card stock (that had been glued to a piece of Real Red card stock) but the third one was stuck on using dimensionals.

Oops. I did make three cards, and I've just realised that I did not take a photo of the third so I am not going to be able to share it with you. Sorry.

Hopefully Royal Mail will have delivered the cards by now. I did mail them first class but you can never tell this time of year how long it will actually take.
