Christmas Cards

(Ladies, I finally got these cards posted! Sorry it took me so long!)

"Snow" Card...I was given the idea when I received my card in the mail made by Karen Pederson, her card is the one with all the ribbon. My card is the one without. I love them both! It is a 6" x 6" card made with the White Daisy Cardstock, Aspen Level II Paper Packet, a little bit of Twilight card stock, Creme Brulee' Stamp pad, and the "All Decked Out" November Stamp of the Month Stamp set. To add a bit of sparkle, I smeared a bit of liquid glass along the face edge and sprinkled with Prisma Glitter (I did this on all my "Snow" Cards. The little "Snow Friend's" saying it from the "Snow Friend's" stamp set.

"Snow Family" Card.
6"x6" Card made with the White Daisy Cardstock and the November Stamp of the Month.."All Decked Out." The Hat, Ear Muff's, and Scarf's are made with the Creme Brulee' Card Stock, base color is Indian Corn Blue, Snow Flakes are second generation stamped for a lighter color and I also used the Twilight Marker for shading. I also used some ribbon from the soon to be retired Outdoor Denim Ribbon (in the Summer Catalog) The Merry Christmas is stamped with the Cranberry ink using the "Say it in Style" Stamp pad (SOTM from last year) I love this card! I am going to see if I can figure out how to fit 3 more snow people on it for my whole family. If I do, I'll post it.

Warm Wishes
4x6" card, White Daisy Card Stock for the base, Out Door Denim Card Stock w/White Daisy Ink,
Cranberry Card Sock for scarf, a piece of the Evensong card kit B & T Duo for the hat, again, the NSOTM - "All Decked Out" stamp set. This was one of the quicker cards :)

Kisses From Heaven/Christmas Cheer Cards:

This card idea is out of the Fall/Winter Catalog by the Aspen Paper set, this card is 4x12" card folded in 3rds. The ends are scored on a diagonal so when folded it creates a 4x4" square. Made with the Snowflake Kisses Stamp Set, White Daisy Cardstock, White Daisy Brads, Aspen Paper. The snow flakes are second generation for a lighter print and the cut out snowflake is embossed with gold powder. The blank center is meant for a family picture.

Christmas Cheer

Same idea as the Kisses from Heaven only using the EvenSong paper. The ornament is embossed with gold and I used a foam square to pop it up. I tied it with a bow from the Holiday Collection Ribbon set. Christmas Cheer, and other stamping came from the December Word Puzzle Stamp set (I LOVE the Word Puzzles!!!)

Cards using the EvenSong B & T Creative Basics Card kit paper, and the December Word Puzzle. The Merry and Bright Card is 3"x 4" card. I used ribbon from the Holiday Collection Ribbon set and a Garden Green brad. Ink is Cranberry. The 'Peace On Earth" card is a 4"x6" card. I used the December Word Puzzle, Colonial White ribbon, a small square of Colonial White Card Stock, free hand embossing with gold by the ribbon and for the star. Tree's are stamped with New England Ivy Stamp pad, Peace on Earth is stamped with Cranberry Stamp pad. I scalloped the edges with my corner rounder. If you would like to know how to to that please leave a comment with and email address. :)

Merry Christmas Y'all!
