Crafting with Heather

Another lovely day crafting with a lovely lady! thanks Heather, you make crafting days something special.

Today we made another two Christmas cards each (there has to be time for lunch and chatting)
Here are the cards we made (we both made two the same, or at least very similar)
I'll put some details after the photo.

The cards are easel cards. The base card is Stampin Up Cherry Cobbler. There are two different papers used for the green layer, one is  Kaszazz Alpine Flourish, and the other is Kaiser 6 1/2" paper pad Dec 25th.
The red layer is  Kaszazz Greetings / dots
The pearl layer under the fussy cut image is Kaszazz Opal Essentials bling. The image is a Magnolia stamp which was stamped onto Stampin Up whisper white then coloured with Copic's, I'll list the colours at the end. The snowflakes are punched using Martha Stewart punches. The fur on Santa's suit is done with  Alison Ellis Sparkle 'n' Soft Twinkling clouds which I got from Blue Edge Crafts, it gives a lovely sparkly flocked effect.
The edges of each layer were inked with distress ink Aged Mahogany, and the sentiment is from Stampin Up's set called Heard from the heart and stamped in Cherry Cobbler,
The ribbon is 1.5cm wide satin edged organdy ribbon.

I originally posted that the image was from Kasazz, I'm sorry but that is incorrect, the image is actually a Magnolia image.

All the Kaszazz products can be bought from Heather Blencowe @
