Free Christmas papers and a card sample

Hello all, hope you are doing well....
I thought that for those of you who need some quick cards still, I would share some free papers, created specifically with cards in mind. They are designed to be printed in post card size, about 6" x 4 ".



I finally have a colour printer again, so I was able to print them and made a quick card using one of the papers, adding a little inking, stamping and some die cuts, this made for a super quick card.
Below a couple of close ups:


Well, that's it for today. I want to say thank you to the Graphics Fairy, as many of the elements used for these papers come from her site. You can use these papers for whatever you like, no need for any credits, just don't try and sell them as they are. Oh and if any of you would like some matching tags, - let me know and I can post some to print in a few days. Enjoy and happy crafting!!

As always your card is just amazing and soo beautiful Astrid, you always makes such wonderful cards.
And thanks sooo much for these beautiful papers, they´re really gorgeous, and as I´m missing a few cards still, I´m definitely going to use them right away, and like you I just got a new printer, so it should work klike a dream. I would love some of your tags for them too, but only if you have them ready, as I don´t want you to sit and make for us, when we know, all have sooo much to do in your own home. I hope things are nice and cosy in your house for Christmas.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
