PBSC August - Anything Goes (Optional 'Make the Sentiment the Focus')

It's the first Saturday of the month, so that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...where the theme is:

'Anything Goes'
'Make the Sentiment the Focus'

As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome 1-2-3 Stitch:
Prize - a $20 voucher!

Most of my Penny Black sentiment stamps are fairly small, but I did find this rather lovely large 'Merry Christmas' one in my collection. I used it to make a simple set of one layer Christmas cards, combined with the snowy swirl stamp from the 'A Bright Tomorrow' set. I stamped it on to the centre of my card blanks using Versamark Ink, then added the swirl in a couple of the corners. I heat embossed them using a different colour of embossing powder on each of the coloured card blanks (Metallic Silver & Metallic Silver Sparkle on the navy, Metallic Gold & Metallic Gold Sparkle on the burdundy, and white & Sparkling Snow on the teal - all by WOW except the white).

These were so quick and simple to do (especially as I used my Tim Holtz stamping platform to stamp the swirl - keeping the stamp in the same position, and just moving the card blank around to stamp it in the opposite corner), so I made a couple of each colour:

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
