Australiana Christmas Cards with Adriana Bolzon

Hello and welcome back... Adriana here today and I have been creating some Christmas cards to send to my overseas family and friends. 
I have created them with an Australiana theme and using Couture Creations
teamed up together with the New
Christmas collection these are a perfect combination of
papers, dies, ephemera and stamping to create my Australiana Christmas Cards..

I created a couple of them, some are really easy and some involve a little bit of
stamping and layering.

The ephemera collection 
CO727908 The gift of Giving Sentiment Set have the most perfect 
sentiments to add to any cards..

Holiday Greetings by Adriana Bolzon

Layering some ephemera images from the
The Gift of Giving CO727909 ephemera collection, these images are so beautiful.

The papers are from the small paper pad CO727896 - 6.5" x 6.5" and the postcard
is from the The Gift of GivingCollection pack CO727895 
(there are 6 postcards in the collection pack)

Adding a stamp sentiment from the Fair Dinkum mini stamp set
from the "Sweeping Plains" collection CO727989 with the word "G'DAY"

Using Mirror Board Vintage GOLD to cut
the The Gift of Giving DIES CO727918 The Gift of Giving -Holly Sprig mini die
CO727917 The Gift of Giving - Holly Corner Frame mini die

for my second card "MERRY CHRISTMAS" card
I created the background with the papers from the small 6.5" x 6.5" paper pad from the
SWEEPING PLAINS collection..CO727967

Adding a foiled oval frame using the GoPress & Foil machine, 
I then stamped and coloured the eucalyptus leaves, kookaburra and flowers..
CO727984 Sweeping Plains Kookaburra mini stamp and die set
CO727985 Sweeping Plains Eucalyptus mini stamp and die set,

adding the
stamped word Sweeping Plains "G'DAY MATE" from the Fair Dinkum mini sentiment stamp CO727989

How cute is that Kookaburra !! - I coloured him, flowers and leaves with watercolour pencils and ink.

I also added a CO727920 The Gift of Giving MERRY CHRISTMAS die cut with Vintage Gold Mirror board in the top right hand corner.

Here are two more cards using Papers for the background from the 6.6 x 6.5 small paper pad from the SWEEPING PLAINS collection and just adding the word ephemera sentiment collection from the Sentiments collection of the - The gift of Giving - Ephemera set CO727908.
These are quick and easy to create layering the elements with doubled sided foam tape.

The Gift of Giving - Mini die cut Holly sprig CO727918

Until next time, stay safe
