Christmas cards made with Hunkydory die cut toppers

I had fun making these Christmas cards, using the Hunkydory die cut topper sheet In the Snow, from the Christmas Festive Fantasy range, which features a unicorn and foal.

I used the largest topper and a greetings topper from the sheet on the 8 x 10" card above, the card is covered with a Basic Grey paper. I embossed some white pearlescent card using the Cuttlebug snowflakes folder, and edged it using straight peel off border stickers. To finish off the card, I added a couple of swirls, die cut from silver mirri card and adhered using a Sakura Quickie glue pen, which is great for sticking all sorts of fiddly items.
I thought I'd go for an alternative colour scheme on the card above, using a 6 x 6 inch backing paper. The topper is mounted onto light blue card and silver mirri card, the mats made using rectangular nestabilities. The topper used is half of a tag topper - I added a ribbon bow to cover the silver circle in the top left hand corner. To finish the card, I added some toning grosgrain ribbon and co-ordinating flowers with brad centres.
A very simple card - the 6 x 6 inch card has been covered with a toning backing paper and finished with a dark blue organza ribbon tied into a bow.
The cards above and below are 5 x 7 inch cards, covered with co-ordinating Hot off the Press papers and the toppers mounted onto mats made using long rectangle nestabilities. I embellished the card below with a stamped swirl, and rounded the corners of the card using a corner chomper.
The foiled and die cut Hunkydory topper sheet that I used to make the cards is pictured below.
Each topper sheet contains a selection of picture and greetings toppers for your card craft projects, so you can make several cards from each sheet. Toppers can be matted and layered or mounted with foam pads or silicone adhesive for extra dimension.
