It's Beginning To Look Alot Like Christmas!

I thought I would share some cards I have been working on lately. I was bit by the Christmas bug.
I used the Cuttlebug EF Forest Branches, and sanded them to add dimension. I used Prisma Glitter to highlight the snow banks. I finished it off with Liquid Applique so that it was gently snowing.The photo is blurry, but it shows the Prisma Glitter. Ooooooo, it's so pretty.

This card I made last year. First I wrinkled the CS and then I brayered over it with a darker blue to highlight the wrinkles. The edges are sanded. I added Prisma Glitter to the wings, and Gold Embossing Powder to the halo.Again, the photo is blurry, but it shows the Prisma Glitter glittering away.

This card was inspired by my friend Lydia Dueck. I like the simplicity of it. I stamped the background wood grain and then stamped the pine boughs on top. I Clear Embossed berries on Cranberry CS and finished it off with a Black Hemp bow.
The 'Happy Holidays' is Gold Embossed.

This card I copied out of CTMH's Autumn/Winter '06 Idea Book. It was a card kit, but I liked the colour combination, so I made from scratch. For the Christmas trees I cut triangles, and then cut little slits out of them to make it look like a tree. How cool is that? I finished the trees off with a gold brad on top.

This card was inspired by another CTMH Consultant (sorry, I didn't write her name down). I Gold embossed the letters, matted them, and used scallop scissors. I used Liquid Glass to attach the ribbon.

Enjoy and thanks for looking.
