Christmas is coming......

..or so I'm told! thankfully it's a lovely warm, sunny Autumn day here today but I've been making some Christmas cards and tags this week. 

I have used the gorgeous Docrafts Papermania "First Noel" paper with added glitter - candy cane Stickles - and of course, lots of Tonic Studios goodies........ 
 On the card, the "Merry Christmas" is one of the sentiment dies which come with the Cracker die set and the ornate gold corners were cut with the Verdant Vines die set.

I've used the same Verdant Vines corner die to make a top for the tag and snipped off a bit to add to the top right corner. I used the Loopy Lace border punch along the bottom of the tag and also to make the little rosette :)

You'll be very welcome over at my blog - A Passion for Cards - if you'd like to pay a visit to see lots more cards and tutorials etc.
