The Music of Christmas

Good afternoon to you all, I hope  that you are all well and in fine crafting spirit and no I don't mean the gin or the vodka but if it helps then so be it, each to there own method of boosting the old mojo lol! I have to confess I've just had three pieces of delicious Galaxy Salted Caramel chocolate that I had leftover from last week purely to boost the energy levels you understand and here's the empty wrapper to prove it, such a pity that there was only three left it's absolutely Scrumptious: ) you should really try it !!!! 
Ok enough talk about chocolate lets move on to our classes for this week.

This week I have chosen to use quite a few products from several different companies, my main focus was upon the free embossing folder that came with the Inspiration magazine by Crafters Companion as I know so many of you have invested in it, along with a rather sweet little die that we have not used before and it's a music themed die called Treble Clef and is one of the Intricutz Dies by Couture Creations.
Although both these products are geared towards everyday designs I've teamed them up with the Winter Trees and the Holly sprays from Sue Wilson and a couple of sentiments from Sara and Crafters Companion and guess what?.......... they all worked perfectly well together so I went along in keeping with  the Christmas theme  and came up with theses two cards.
Once again you can't really see the true colours in the photo's so you won't get the best view of the Gilding Wax in the background of the 8x8 card, oh well not to worry you already know that they always look much nicer in real time.

Just peeking in at the side of this picture  you will see that I have used the Colour Cloud inks to create the backgrounds of both the large and smaller panels which have also been embossed.

The Treble Clef has been die cut out of red card that has a layer of Stick-it on top, then sparkle red embossing powder from Cosmic Shimmer has been applied before heating with my heat gun, the same goes for the sentiment Happy Christmas which is from the Only Words by Die'sire range from C C
The red glitter glue on the trees is by Imagination Crafts.

Card two is 6x6.

Music embossing folder free with magazine.

This time I have changed the colours to blues and the Treble Clef has been die cut and then painted with the Orchid Starlight paint but for some reason it appears to look more like black in the photo, oh the wonder of technology lol!

Not a lot of elements to this card therefore not much effort is required making it a quick make and that's a good thing if you have quite a large number to get through in time for Christmas.
