Greetings, blog friends! I am posting 3 more of the cards I made last night. I made no more than 4 of each design this year, and I completely finished my cards last night!!! Whoo hoo!!! My husband put them in the mail this morning, and I am SO excited to have them done. Here are the 3 I did last night. Feel free to comment, I would love to know which you like the best. I am not sure how many different designs I did this year, but each card posted on my blog went out, and some didn't get pics taken before I sealed them. Next year, I start earlier!!!
If I had to name this card, I would it Silly Snowmen! I love this one, easy and fun! The base for this card is Ballet Blue, I stamped all over it with the snowflake from Perfect Presentation, then swiped all edges of the card in my Ballet Blue inkpad. I cut a piece of Basic Black CS down to 2 1/4 x 4 3/4, and punched the two long sides with the Spiral Punch to create the 'filmstrip'. This little snowman is from a SU set, I do not know the name. I stamped and colored about 100 of these last year for a card I never got around to making and it is a friends set, but I know it is some sort of tag set. One thing to know, you really need the Square Punches for these cards, but that's the one thing I do not have, so I punched them out with the Large Tag Punch, and cut the top of freehand. Glued those to the black strip, then on the card at an angle. The word JOY is from Perfect Presentation and I used Dimensionals to pop them up a little. That's it. This one was so much fun to make, and snowmen always make me smile.
I think if I had to name this card, I would call it Cheerful Christmas! I love these bright vivid colors, and they just scream Christmas! The base of this card is Baja Breeze, with a strip of Ski Slope DSP down the side (can you tell I am in LOVE with this paper?). I tied some red grosgrain (Offray 1/8" red) over the meeting point, then stamped the little snowflake from Perfect Presentation down the blue side. I stamped the tree from Perfect Presentation on Whisper White CS in Old Olive ink and layered over a piece of Real Red CS. There is a little red blingy on the tree, that's from Hero Arts. I stamped the word JOY from Perfect Presentation on scrap Whisper White CS and cut out and adhered to bottom of card with Dimensionals. Isn't it cheerful?
This one turned out fairly elegant for how little work was involved, and that's a good thing when you are in a hurry! I love the soft hue of Baja Breeze, and the card base is that color, as well as the snowflake DSP called Ski Slope. I used the Slit Punch on the bottom of the card to hold the sentiment, which is from Heard from the Heart. I stamped the snowflake from Scandinavian Season, punched with 1 1/4 circle, layered over 1 3/8 circle, layered over Brushed Silver (love this stuff!) CS punched with the Scallop Circle punch. I put a Filigree Designer Brad in the center, and stuck it on the card with Glue Dots. I hope it's not too simple, and the recipients like it!
Hope you like them all. SU products are in BOLD print, and I always try to give the brand of whatever I use that's not SU. Merry Christmas!
