Merry Christmas Tall Christmas Cards with DECK THE HALLS collection

 Hi everyone , Welcome to the first day of September ( Springtime  in the Southern Hemisphere !!) 

Adriana here today with my first CHRISTMAS CARDS for 2021 !! Using the wonderful brand new release collection from Couture Creations


This collection is full of wonderful dies, stamps, papers and some wonderful embellishments.

I created my cards using the NEW Golden Age Alcohol Inks for the backgrounds
and coloured the poinsettias with the ALCOHOL INK MARKERS 
All these fabulous products available now from your local papercraft store!
Here are my two Merry Christmas cards. Using the same Slim line die from the DECK THE HALL collection - I created the backgrounds with GOLDEN AGE Alcohol Inks.

The first card centre piece is created with Golden Age FUSHIA Alcohol Ink - with specks of Golden Age Gold Alcohol Ink, the second one is created with Golden Age Pearl Alcohol Ink
I just love the effect on the SYNTHETIC  ALCOHOL INK PAPER
- colour flakes of gold - set a nice touch for the backgrounds.

Cutting cardstock with the dies from this collection
I have the list of all the products in the list below..

I coloured in the Poinsettia flowers from the Poinsettias Greetings stamp & colour outline stamp
