Christmas projects - card, stars and crackers

 I've been using my Tonic Studios Indulgence Elegant Vine Square die again. This time I cut the two dies out in Papermill Purple Grape and Rich Cream card and offset them to create a shadow effect. Then I cut out a Cracker Tag die in cream, decoupaged the centre and embossed it with a dotty folder and added some glitter. The flowers are made with the 2 petal sizes from the Carnation, Sweet William, Peony Punch and Stamp set. The beautiful swirls are from the Frond Finesse die set.
The background paper is First Noel 12x 12 paper pad.


 These cute little star boxes are made with the Tonic Studios Star die and Papermill White, Forest Green, Kraft and Ruby Red card along with some Stickles, silver card and ribbon.


 The crackers were made with the Tonic Studios Cracker die. The one on the left is made from Papermill cream linen card with a Multi Detail punched Snowman and Gothic border punched pieces glued on behind.
For the 2nd cracker I have used the Tonic Studios Vintage Christmas Cracker die pad and added a border punched with the Gothic border punch onto Papermill cream linen card to elongate it.
