And some more ....

Are you totally bored yet? Here's a couple more Christmas cards:




The first card uses the Ornaments set from Our Daily Bread that I got bundled with the nesties that coordinate - I just love these stamp/die combos! I embossed the stamp on some gold paper, die cut it and popped it up on some Always Artichoke (SU) paper that I had stamped with a Tim Holtz stamp in Versamark and embossed with clear ep. Easy, peasy!

The second card uses a totally cute little cardinal from pcCrafters that I mounted on Riding Hood Red (SU) scalloped squares (nesties) and arranged on some wonderful Christmas dp from SU. Added a poinsettia nestie and a sentiment (SU) and ended up with a card that I really like.

The third card is also a digital image from pcCrafters that I printed out on some Naturals White (SU) and distressed the edges. It's mounted on a piece of Always Artichoke and the card base is some of that toothy white that I'm so in love with these days. I took my AA pad and wiped it across the cardstock to add some color and added some AA ribbon to finish it off.

I'm still working on the tea light box tutorial and hopefully it will be up tomorrow!

Thanks for visiting!

Gorgeous cards Chris! I haven't been posting lately. Been grumpy,tired and yesterday,my husband's brother went in the hospital with a Heart Attack. So we've been at the hospital twice a day. We'll know more today,but he's still in ICU,so we'll just have to ask the Lord to keep him with us!
Have a good weekend!

I can't pick a fav of the three because I love them all! The ODB die/stamp is beautiful and the gold against the green is stunning. Love those red birds with the holly sprig and your layout of the card. And the tree one(if I had to pick) is the most awesome because I love tree stamps. Love the inked background. Great cards Chris! Best, Curt
