A Merry Little Christmas

Here is another one of my Christmas cards that I am sending out this season. Very traditional colors for this one. I just love the embossing folder! It looks like little poinsettia leaves, and is so super elegant in white! The ribbon is double sided which makes it so versatile! The other side is polka dots!

The sentiment is embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing powder. Can't have a Christmas card without a little sparkle!


Stamp Set: Christmas Punch
Ink: Versamark
Paper: Garden Green, Real Red, Whisper White

Let it Snow

Here is a little Christmas card that I did. I just love this stamp set, and is so fun to color! I put a little Liquid Applique on the snowman and puffed it up with my embossing gun. Boy is that fun! I also ran the white layer through my Big Shot. You can't see real well in the photo, but it has little dots (like snowflakes).

Are you ready for Christmas cards yet?
