More Christmas Cards

Well, I have to admit, I am about done making Christmas cards.  I have so many more stamps that I wanted to try out and make cards from, but I am ready to move on to another theme, now ;-)   Of course, as I say that....I am thinking of more I could make.  Eventually, though, I need to start thinking of birthday, Valentine's day....oh...wait, I could do WINTER cards and that way could still use my snowmen :-)

Here are three of the cards I sent out this year for Christmas.

 This card I used a stamp set from Eureka Rubber Stamps.  It's called 17302 Sm Winter Scene Circle.  I just stamped it with Palette Starry Night ink pad.  I added some Icicle Stickles to the little snowflakes around the scene.  Added a white organza ribbon and finished.
  For this card, I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on one side of my white card stock and then placed a punched circle on the right side and used Palette Starry Night ink pad and a sponge to sponge the sky.  Then, I stamped the tree from Embossing Arts Co. onto the card stock.  I added some Stickles to the snowflakes on the embossed part and also on the tree.  
This was a stamp from Hero Arts that I bought from a friend, Vicki, who sells Hero Arts.  I basically did that same thing as I did with the Eureka stamp.  I stamped the image onto a square piece of white card stock.  I added the ribbon to a piece of glimmery (although you can't see it here) blue card stock and then placed my image on to of that.  I added a tiny bit of Icicle Stickles to the star.

I probably won't use the glimmery paper any more....one...it's gone....and two....it didn't stick well to my card stock with the ribbon underneath.

These cards show that you CAN make Christmas cards in the month of December and get them sent off (as of yesterday).....although, now I can think of so many other ways I could have used these sets, time was of an essence and I needed to do quick easy cards in order to get them out by my deadline.

Have a God blessed day!!!
