More Christmas Cards

Good Morning!

Ugh! I stayed up too late last night creating cards and now I feel like a zombie! But I did have a fun and productive night. I made some Hanukkah cards that I will share with you another time because I still need to photograph them. 

Meanwhile, I still have Christmas cards to share with you. I once again used dcwv glitter paper for the cutouts on these cards. As you can see I cut the light bulbs and ornaments out twice and then layered them. You cannot tell in the photographs, but I put pop dots behind the bulbs and ornaments to add dimension to the cards.

I ran the glittery layering paper on this card through a Cuttlebug Christmas tree embossing folder. The trees were punched with an EK Success Christmas tree punch. I cut off the patterned tree trunks and then free cut some brown paper to create new trunks.

I used a Sarasota ribbon tree wooden stamp to create the image on this card. I pressed the stamp in a
glue pad and then stamped it on the card. I sprinkled glitter over the paper and shook off the excess. The glitter stuck to the glue creating a sparkly ribbon tree. I free cut a tree stand and added a rhinestone star to the top of the tree. The text is a Recollections sticker.

Toni has taken the day off and we're going out for a day of shopping at Ink About It in Westford. Will let you know how we did!

Have a great day!

I love the process for the ribbon tree. I'll have to try that with my new tree stamp that I purchased on my last hoarding spree, I mean shopping spree, to Michaels. (I've decided that I'm just a pig when it comes to paper and ribbon. :D)
