Christmas Cards

It's time to start thinking (and making) Christmas cards so here are some ideas.

I love this new Merry Background stamp.  It is a bold stamp so I inked it in black on white cardstock then embossed it in black.  Then I added color to the words using the new round ink blending tool or jumbo daubers and Memento or Hero Arts inks.  The color on the blue card didn't photograph well -- it's a lot prettier in person.  Quick and easy and colorful!  And the new Curled Ribbons die is fabulous -- it really adds the perfect touch!

This is even easier.  Ink stamp in Versamark and emboss in white on red cardstock.  Cut out and layer with colorful papers and the Pine Tree Background die.

Cut the ornament and curled ribbons from gold mirror card then inlay the pink ornament and green leaves and berries.  Mount on an embossed background, add a few sequins and you're done!

This photo makes the snowflake look like an embossed stamp, but it is actually a die cut snowflake that's mounted over silver glitter paper.  Just emboss the sentiment in silver!
