Beat the Christmas Rush - May

BtCR is now hosted by Krafty Karen, you can find the details here.  Thank you to Sue for inventing and hosting the challenge so brilliantly.

I have made four identical simple cards this month, completely non-dimensional so they can be easily posted!  I still don't have the space to set up my photo booth, so for the time being all my cards are artfully posed on my mini guillotine :-)

The paper is from Simple Stories and the stamp is from Just-rite.  The image is stamped and embossed using Stampendous Pearl Champagne embossing powder, it's a lovely soft gold.  I die-cut the image using a Nestie label, I think it was label 22.

I hope you'll join us for this challenge, hop over to Karen to find out more :-)


  1. These look lovely. I've been sooooooo bad this year and I really need to get some Christmas projects underway.
