Beat the Christmas Rush - July

I have managed to be a little more organised for Krafty Karen's BtCR this month!  I have made five cards, yes five!!! That must be a record :-)
I decided that I really should use some Christmas stamps bought last year, which have never seen ink......!!  This snowflake lace stamp from Indigo Blu was stamped and embossed in white on kraft and also silver on white.  I matted the kraft onto red cardstock and the white onto silver mirri - which I don't usually use but I had got some free samples at work, couldn't waste them, could I? LOL.
My original plan for all five cards was this:

But after I had attached all five images to their mats and card blanks, I saw there was a small space in the design which was perfect for a tiny sentiment, so I did the other four cards like that.  The silver is difficult to photograph, I promise it is more 'silvery' in real life :-)

Five more for the box :-)
