My Christmas Cards

Here are the cards I made this year for some of my stamping friends. I was trying to keep them flat to avoid paying extra postage, so no embellishments!

My husband says this card looks like the commercials for Food Network's Season's Eatings, but it's really inspired by a Pier 1 catalog.

stamps - Snowflake Spot, Polka Dot, All Holidays (I think)
paper - whisper white, chocolate chip, wild wasabi, real red
ink - wild wasabi, versamark
acc - corner rounder, white EP, circle cutting system (CM)

Acetate cards are difficult for me to photograph, but I used the swirl from Season of Joy on the background. You can't really tell as the card is slightly open, but there are two more layers to the focal point, another river rock and whisper white mat. I stamped the word background in river rock, then the tree in versamark and embossed in white. I finished with an outline of the tree with my Sakura Stardust gelly roll glitter pen.

stamps - Season of Joy
paper - acetate, river rock, whisper white
ink - river rock, versamark, white Stazon
acc - white EP, glitter gel pen

Thanks for stopping by - I hope you and your families have a very Merry Christmas!

You do very pretty work!! They are beautiful and not too difficult. I realise some of my cards are more complicated than some people want to make.
