Now onto my project I have made 4 cards, The two below are in traditional Christmas Colours Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla with some Gold added. I have sponged the Embossed Very Vanilla mat with Crumb Cake, the Cherry Cobbler piece under the Snowflakes is embossed with the Snowflake Flurry Embossing Folder.
Each card has two pieces of the Venetian Lace to give the impression that it is wider.

The tags are made with Vellum card stock then embossed with the Snowflake Flurry Embossing Folder and added a tag of Whisper White card stock under.
