TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS CARDS

Hi all I made two cards yesterday for my mum I had a look at the challenges that are about and decided to go for the traditional theme.
The first one is made using an 8x8 white scalloped card base, red mirri card, Ooh-La-La Poinsettia and Holly set of both papers and toppers, I added some flowers, lace, ribbon, gems bow, bell and a tag which I embossed with Judikins Bronze Metallic embossing powder.
My second card is one that James will give his Nan, I have used a digi image from Vintage Milly, she has just brought out a range of gorgeous digi images available HERE this one is called Reindeer Emily, I have coloured her using Copics, I printed the image twice the second one I cut out and adhered her to the base one with silicone glue, I used gold glitter for the little string of bells, I used papers from my stash, black card for mounting, gold metallic card for the base, TH Die Cut, punched snowflakes, gems, sentiment embossed with Judikins Bronze Metallic powder and some Poinsettia flowers from Wild Orchid. 
I did the inside card with a flap so I could put in a little gift of a special tasting cocoa.


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I hope you like my cards and have enjoyed your visit I will be seeing you all soon so take care, hugs to all.
