Christmas cards

I know it may seem a bit early to be mentioning the dreaded C word but for once I'm trying to be organised. Usually I'm still making my cards on christmas eve, but hopefully not this year. I'm planning to make a couple of cards each week so for once I'll have them all done in plenty of time.

I have been playing with the plain cardstock from the March Personal Shopper Kit. It has a white core which makes it perfect for distressing. For the toppers of the first two cards and the background of the third card I used some of the purple cardstock from the kit. I embossed it and then sanded it to reveal the white core and make the designs stand out.
When I first looked at the patterned papers in the PS kit I thought what lovely summery papers, but actually the purples and blues are perfect for christmas too! Pretty much everything used here came from the kit apart from the piece of White Bazzill Ric Rac (check out the other colours of ric rac available here)
