Christmas cards a comin'

Okay, so I did get 2 Christmas cards done but just didn't get a chance to upload until now. One is just a more wintery card but I'm sure I will send it for Christmas. I'm not the kind of person that makes all of the same Christmas cards. I can't! I love taking advantage of all of the sets and paper that I have at my fingertips. If I do make multiples they are usually in 5 or less. I don't think I have ever made the same card more than 5 times unless it was an invitation. Cudos to those that have the disipline to do so!!! I however have none!

I started with wanting to do a card with no layers. I have tried it before and the results have been so so but I actually really like the way this one turned out!

  • Certainly Celery, Real Red, Positively Pink, Garden Green inks (SU)
  • Distressed Designs set (TAC)
  • PSX Snowflake
  • Joy from Small Script set (SU)
  • sheer red ribbon
I sponged Celery around the whole botton and the top edges of the card. I also colored the Joy stamp with a marker so I didn't get the long lines on the j and y. Once everything was stamped I cut a slit in the side of the card to slip the ribbon through.

This one is made from Die Cuts with a View paper. It's from the Christmas Stack from last year.

*Side note* I really don't care for the new Christmas Stack this year! I figured it would be more 'trendy' but I was really dissapointed. I guess that is a blessing though, well at least for my wallet!

I used my coluzzle to cut the circles and just glamed up the outer circle with some glitter. A really simple 5x5 card.

Howdy Heidi!
Both cards are beautiful...I especially love the blue. :) I'm hoping to sit down and make a couple of cards this afternoon, I'll let you know how it goes.
