Frosted and Sparkle & Shine Christmas Cards

I had lots of fun making these cards. I used the Workshops on the Go® Frosted Cardmaking Kit(G1063) to make the first set of cards. This kit is found in the Autumn/Winter 2013 Close To My Heart Idea Book on pg 69. With the kit you're able to make 3 cards and 5 of each.

Here are some close-ups of the cards

Included in the kit are card patterns. I decided to use the same card pattern from the kit with the Sparkle & Shine Paper Kit(X7176B) which is found in the Close to my Heart Holidays from the Heart Gift Guide 2013.
Here are a close-ups of the cards.


The Emblishments that I used were the:
Bitty Sparkles(Z1263)
Ruby Mini-Medley Accents Collections(Z1861)-metallic baker's twine
Red Shimmer Trim(Z1848)
The Inks that I used were the:
Here's another look of the cards from both paper packs.
