6 Christmas Cards

I have a treat for you today! I did my last Christmas card Gathering on Sunday....yippee. So I thought I'd share with you my samples.

All 6 card sizes: 4.25" x 5"

Here are the pieces of paper I gave the ladies.
Recipe: CTMH CS-White Daisy, Outdoor Denim, Spring Iris & Lilac Mist

Here's the first card I made up as a sample of what you could do with the pieces.
I used White Embossing Powder for the snowflakes. I've always loved this colour combination. I used Stickles to add a little sparkle to the angel.

The inside:
Recipe: CTMH Ink-Spring Iris, Lilac Mist and Black, CTMH SS-Gracious Greetings, Snow Flurries, Angel Sent and New Fallen Snow, White Embossing Powder, Nestabilities Circle & Scallop Circle DC, Rhinestones, Martha Stewart Punch, Foam Squares, Stickles.

Here's the second example I showed. Aren't they cute!?! One trick that I LOVE about Acrylic Stamps is that you can take a straight sentiment and curve it on the block, and that's what I did here.

Here's a close-up of the snowmen, I added Stickles to the snowflakes and buttons on them.

Recipe: CTMH Ink-Outdoor Denim, Black, Spring Iris & Lilac Mist, CTMH SS-Christmas Scripts, Winter Wonderland & Snow Flurries, Cuttlebug EF-Snowflakes, Foam Squares, Stickles.

Here's the third card I showed.

Recipe: CTMH Ink-Outdoor Denim, Spring Iris & Black, CTMH SS-The Beauty of Christmas & Holiday Trinkets, Cuttlebug EF-Snow Dots & Winter Jelly, Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch, Rhinestones, Foam Squares.

Here's the second set of cards I showed. Thanks to Melanie L., I was inspired by the colour combination of the card she sent me!
Recipe: Heavenly Blue, Colonial White & Tulip.

Here's the first card I made. Nothing too fancy shmancy.
Recipe: CTMH Ink-Tulip, Black, Bamboo & Chocolate, CTMH SS-Shining Star, Say It In Style & Peace on Earth, Cuttlebug EF-Snowflakes, Rhinestones, Foam Squares.
Here's the second card I made.
I couldn't resist using Nestabilities Fleur De Lis DC.
Recipe: CTMH Ink-Bamboo, Chocolate, Black & Tulip, CTMH SS-Spot On Backgrounds, Snow Flurries, Peace On Earth & Snow Friends, Nestabilities DC-Fleur De Lis & Fancy Tags, Foam Squares
And last, but not least, Card #3.
Here's a shot showing the Stickles.
Inside. Again, I curved the sentiment, just to add a little variety.
Recipe: CTMH Ink-Tulip, Black, Heavenly Blue & Moonstruck, CTMH SS-Holiday Trinkets, Cuttlebug EF-Swiss Dots, Nestabilities DC-Scalloped Oval, Rhinestones, Foam Squares.
Hope you enjoyed the cards,
