.This first card was an oops, lol. I made the card thinking the contest was for showcasing the new stamp sets. The contest for cards needed to showcase the new papers. So I added the thin strips of Mistletoe, and still submitted it even though I know it wasn't showing much of the paper.
.All Card Sizes: 4.25" x 5.5"
The tree is from the Tannenbaum Stamp Set. I embossed it with Gold EP, I clear embossed the tops of the tree on the White Daisy CS. I used the Corner Rounder to make the scallops, and finished it off with pearls and rhinestones.
This next card I wanted to show that the Olivia papers could be Christmas-y too. I used the set of trees from Holiday Trinkets to stamp a background. I used the Blending Pen to colour in the tree.
I embossed the tree with Black EP, and finished the card off with rhinestones and colonial white grosgrain ribbon.
Here's the card I made to showcase the Mistletoe papers (since I oops it on the first card:)). I used the stamp set Snow Days, and the sentiment is from Everlasting Life. I used the Blending Pen to colour in the house, and Prisma Glitter to add sparkle to the snowy areas.
I embossed the sentiment with Black EP on vellum, and attached it so the edges were not flat but curled up a bit.
I made a total of 5 cards, and none of the 5 won. Oh well, there's always next catalogue release:)
