Merry Christmas

Good Morning everyone.  So today I'm sharing this batch of Christmas cards.  Based on my Alpha fishtail design and also on a mission to use up old papers!

Die-namics pierced fishtail banner dies, de'sire alpha dies used to cut the individual letters out of each fishtail to spell Happy and Merry.  I first computer printer the Christmas onto the card blank. I then layered the fishtail onto either silver or gold mirror card and then again onto red or navy cardstock.  Ive only glued the top of the fishtails down so it adds movement. Buttons or Sequins to finish.  Very difficult to get decent photos of these. Simple really, but time consuming doing all the die cutting.

Thank you for looking and any comments you leave.  Wishing you all a happy Sunday. Emma


  1. Brilliant cards...I'm sure they must have taken a lot of time to put together. Die-cutting , layering, and assembling everything harmoniously and're a creative and talented crafter with a lot of patience too!
