Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel Trio of Christmas Cards with Instructions

By Alicia McNamara

Hello Crafty Friends,

I made these three cards for a magazine, but sadly the magazine is having some sort of difficulty and will not be published.  I thought I would pop these on my blog before Christmas to share.  They are made with the gorgeous Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel Collection.  I love the purple shades in this collection.

I love the clean lines on these cards.  I was going for a "shop-bought card" style.  Flat with shiny focal points.  They were fun to make.
