Various Christmas Cards

 This is a Christmas card I have made for my eldest son and his partner.  I have used some Debbi Moore Inspiration Magazine decoupage along with some backing papers.  As they both wear glasses I have added glasses to the penguins!!
 I recently bought The Papercraft Essentials Magazine (Issue 1515) as I saw this letterbox embossing folder and stamps and thought it would prove useful.
 I embossed the whole folder onto white card and then used a light blue Pan Pastel to colour the sky.  I used a snowflake stamp that came with the magazine and a blue chalk ink pad to add snowflakes to the sky.  I then used the embossing folder and embossed with red for the letterbox and black for the base.  This took a long time over a few days as it was hard going with my Grand Calibur.  Once embossed I cut out the letterbox and base and stuck them onto the main image.
 I used various backing papers to mount the scene on and used various stamps to add a sentiment.  Some cards are finished off with cute little images from a recent Debbi Moore Inspiration Magazine.  The others are finished off with the cute little girl and birds which I have coloured with my Promarkers.
I made about 20 of these cards but forgot to photograph them all.  They have been made using a Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine (Issue 167) where you had all these stamps to make into a wreath and you had this stag head die.  I have used the stamps that came with the die to stamp the wreath shape with various leaves, cones and holly.  I have also used some cat stamps that I have had for a very long time.

I am entering these cards into the following challenges:
