Herald Angel

I didn't really have time to make too many Christmas cards this year. This has only been the second year that I have made Christmas cards. I think I need to start my Christmas cards in the summer. I have little to no time in December. It isn't just my personal stuff that I do for Christmas... it's everything else. I also have my kids school stuff and my own class stuff. Crazy. I know there are so many of you out there that are in the same situation.

Anyway, I was able to make only about 10 of the following card. It didn't really take that long to make - it's just that I didn't have the time to sit.The card base is SU Riding Hood Red. The background DP is SU Very Vanilla stamped one of the snowflakes from SU Snow Swirled with SU Riding Hood Red ink. The other DP is from the DCWV Holiday Collection Stack. The image is High Hopes Herald Angel. It was embossed on watercolor paper that I cut with my Cricut with a Shaplie file from Penny Duncan Creations. I colored it with Twinkling H2Os. The matte is is SU Soft Suede. The charm is from Stamp and Create. The ribbon is from the Dollar Tree.
The following is the side view: The next card has the same HH Angel with a few different elements: The base is PTI Kraft Cardstock. The DP is DCWV Holiday Collection Stack. The ribbon is from Michaels. The flowers are primas. The brads are from my stash. The matte is SU Riding Hood Red.

Snow Swirled

This is another one of the cards I made last year. It was so easy to make! I easily made a whole bunch of these.
The card base is Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy. I stamped the background with one of the snowflake stamps from SU Snow Swirled. The silver matte is also from Papertrey Ink. I stamped the tree from Snow Swirled with versa mark and embossed with silver embossing powder. For the jewels - the ones in the this picture happen to come from Joanns, but I had started using Taylor's Tiny Twinkles from Taylored Expressions. I ran out of the red twinkles and ended up going to Joanns to buy some others. The ribbon is beautiful but I don't know what store it came from. I bought it off my neighbor who used to have a flower shop and she got it from the warehouse where she used to get her flowers. I wish they sold those rolls of ribbon that I bought from her at the stores. The rolls are huge!
Anyway, here is a side view:
This next one - I ran the card through the Cuttlebug with the Snowflake Embossing Folder. The tree charm from above and the snowflake charm are from Stamp and Create. The ribbon also came from my neighbor.

Thanks for hanging out with me!


This is one of the Christmas cards that I have made...this one was one I did last year and never got around to posting. I actually had one left over and sent it out this year to a friend

The card base is SU Whisper White. The DP is DCWV Holiday Collection Paper Stack. The stamps are Studio G dollar stamps from Joanns. The ribbon is from the Dollar Tree. The glitter around the snowman is from Joanns too. The following is a side view:
The next picture is basically the same layout except I added some white brads from Taylored Expressions and a snowflake charm from Stamp and Create.
I will post some more Christmas cards soon!
Thanks for hanging out with me!
