Christmas has Come Early at Diecut Divas

This month we are wanting either red or pink or your card over at Diecut Divas and today I am doing another set of multiple cards to show the flexibility of digital kits. This time I thought I would get a jump on my Christmas Cards. I post out atleast 50 christmas cards and I like to keep them to 1 layer to keep the postage costs down. This is what I created:

Card Tip:
With all of these cards I used a Versamark pen and different brand embossing powders over the top, some brands performed better than others (Ranger was the best). It was was impossible to get the lines exactly the same thickness so I did the original printing in grey so that it wouldn't show throw.  I also found that it was really important to use your anti static tool (mine is the one with the powder not the pillow) this made the embossing lines cleaner especially with the sentiment. I decided to stick these panels straight to the card so the warping from the heat tool didn't matter but if you wanted some height I would suggest a piece of foam behind to help keep your card stock straight.
Card Ingredients:
Card Stock: white card base 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", assorted Quill coloured card stock.
Stamps: Hero Arts Christmas Swirls Digital Kit, Free Christmas kit from Australian Simply Cards mag for sentiments.
Ink: Versamark ink pen, Judkins metallic silver, Rangers platinum embossing powder.
Dies: Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangles.
Other: Assorted gems and pearls from my stash.
