Christmas Cards are DONE

Yeah!  My Christmas cards are done.  I finished them up this morning.  Now to lick, stick and mail.  Here is a sample of the different cards I've made.  For the first time in years, I have not done one, mass card.  I couldn't decide on one style.

All stamps, inks and papers are CTMH.

 Stamps: Wonderland, Snowflakes, and December Word Puzzle. Colors: Cranberry and Cocoa.  Snowflakes and Square Lattice (on mittens) embossing folders.  Scalloped circles cut with Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.
 Stamps: Holiday Wishes, Love Life.  Colors: Cranberry, Key Lime. Ribbon is OLD from CTMH.  I sponged the edges of the tree (cut with Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge) before embossing in white.
My husband's favorite.  Stamps: Share the Magic, Oh Christmas Tree. Colors: Clover Meadow, Holiday Red, Outdoor Denim, Honey, and Pacifica.  Reindeer colored with Copics.
 Stamps: Share the Magic , Oh Christmas Tree, Wonderland (border). Colors: Black, Kraft, Cranberry.  Snowflakes embossing folder. Snowman colored with Copics
 Stamp: Oh Christmas Tree.  Snowflake cut with Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  Colors: Cranberry, Black.  White detail embossing powder from Stampin' UP!
 Stamps: Remarkable Wreath, Oh Christmas Tree, December Word Puzzle.  Colors: Cocoa, Crystal Blue. Prisma glitter on wreath and snowman. Blue sparkles from Jolee.
Stamps: Pair-A-Phrase, December Word Puzzle. Colors: Ocean, Breeze, Cocoa, Petal, Bamboo. (B&T is old CTMH.  Snowman colored with Copics. Prisma glitter snow.

Well, there you have it.  My cards for the year.  And now maybe you see why I was so far behind that I needed the card from yesterday's post to finish out my list.  And since Heart 2 Heart decided to make this week's challenge a virtual Christmas card exchange, tell me which one is your favorite and I'll get one out to you right away...in a virtual sort of way.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.  May the season be filled with light, peace, joy, and love which are all gifts the Christ child brought from heaven to earth with him.

Until next time,
Becca

  1. So hard to choose my favorite they are all fabulous. I think it would be a tie between Rudolph and the red/black snowflake card....

  5. I think the wreath is my favourite ( I LOVE that stamp!); but the embossed snowflakes in black is a close second. ;0)
