Good Evening everyone! I hope your Tuesday was fantastic. Just a quick post today, to share a few more Christmas cards I made. Things are getting a little hectic as I try to finish as many cards as I possibly can in one week…next Monday Joel and I head back home for a few weeks for Christmas. I’m debating whether or not to take my crafting stuff with me. 3 weeks is an awfully long time to go without my craft stuff, but there’s no way I can bring it all home! Maybe I’ll just make a “goody box” with various things and bring that home. I’ll probably let you know what I figure out 🙂
And now to the Christmas cards, since you’ve been so patient 😛 The first is a snowman. The blue cardstock is dry embossed using Tim Holtz’s Alterations Snowman embossing folder. Each snowflake looks like it’s hanging from silver-edged ribbon and popped up to give the card some dimension.
This second card is simple and fun. The ornaments were stamped using black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder, then colored in with markers. The sentiment was the most difficult part; you see it’s stamped in different colors, but it’s all actually one stamp. I stamped it 3 times, each time covering with tape the parts I wasn’t stamping. There’s a tip for you! You can’t see it well in this picture, but the background is dry embossed with stripes.
Finally, I brought the penguins back 🙂 They’re just so cute, one of my favorite stamps. The background is dry embossed again with Tim Holtz’s Alterations Snowflake embossing folder. The penguins are stamped in black and embossed with clear powder. Small silver brads adorn the oval that’s popped up for dimension.
Tomorrow will be full of baking- maybe I’ll share something with you! 🙂
