Two cards

Morning all.
I thought  yesterday I would make another Christmas card and have quite a few toppers and they are just sitting there. They are surposed to be used with some other card but just thought if I use them on this card I can get twice as many cards out of them .
I used 250 GSM cardstock and with the Hougie board  scored down the middle and then again down the middle of the top piece.
I glued snowflake paper to the flat card and then a piece of purple die cut I have had awhile and glued that to the edge,
Then I backed a sentiment saying "Christmas blessing " onto silver cardstock
Next  using foam pads I stuck the main image onto the card,  so I know how far I have to stick the sentiment. I finished of putting foam pads on the sentiment and putting it in place,

I also made this card yesterday and am really cuffed how it came out. Its an aperture card that I had [ I have a lot] from when I was doing cross sitich and thought I would use it and see how it looked,
The pattern round the edge was already there so that was good start ,
I stamped the flower image into some cardstock, Did not want ot do it onto the card itself as its got quite and shine on it and didn't want it to smudge. I then with pro markers I coloured it in.
Next  using double sided tape I stuck in into the aperture. I then again using double sided tape stuck the card together.
Thank you for looking and any comment you leave I love reading them.
