Asstd Christmas Quick cards

 Hi Everyone, a few cards to show you today, lots of piccies! These were quick cards for me.

My first is a card that I printed from Photoshop, a ready made image. When I had it printed I stamped the sentiment and embossed it.

this is the side image where you can see the shine.

This an origami Christmas tree, I bought a cheap pad of origami paper and took it to the Craft Club, this was included in the front of the pad, amongst others to make, glad to say they enjoyed doing this.
origami paper & patterns - The Works
star and sentiment - cut on Silhouette 
gold pen - Uniball glitter pen

I had read on Beccy's Place blog that she had enlarged an image to cover an A4 piece of card to make 4 cards from it, so I decided to pinch that idea from her and I made this card. 

It was printed out from Photoshop, then cut into 4, I added them to 4 ready made cards and followed the outline of the poinsettia with a glue pen and the surround of the cut piece of card, to make a sparkly one layer card that had the sentiment on the front, as I had designed in PS. The image is ready coloured for quick cards. 

this is the whole image used on the 4 cards.

I hope you can see the gold glitter in this

Thanks so much for all this great inspiration! I was going to make an origami tree this year too, but it completely slipped my mind! Love the split image in the first card and splitting a huge image into 4 cards is a brilliant idea that produced 4 more beautiful cards!
