A Merry Christmas

Well, this one was dreamed up in my sleep!  Yes, I obviously went to sleep thinking about my next cards, and this is what I "dreamed" up.  LOL  Not a bad dream at all, if I do say so myself.  I am very pleased with this one.  As I make many of the same cards, I get better ideas and more creative.  So since I am making about 4 of the same, then next three will be slightly different than this one and probably better! 

I used:
Plantin SchoolBook Cartridge for the oval cut
Christmas Cartridge
Stampin up for the Holly leaves and sentiment, Bells & Boughs
The house stamp is one I got at my neighbors garage sale a few years ago
DCWV the glitter card stock stack for the snow
Clear glittered embossing powder
Ribbon from Michael's (last year)

Thank You so much for taking a peek, and I hope you have a blessed day!

The Most Precious Gift of Christmas...

I LOVE this sentiment!  It is so true!  I was shopping around at Michael's for some Christmas stamps, and supplies to help broaden my Christmas designs for cards, and I saw this sentiment and fell in love with it.  I just had to have it!  My plan is to make four of the same cards and just changing them up a little bit.  That way there are no two alike, and I won't get bored doing the same one over and over.  I am very pleased with these.  I will be reusing each of these stamps on other cards, but they will be different in their layout!  

I used:
The Nativity was a set is Recollections Cling Stamps from Michael's
The Sentiment stamp is a Stampendous! Stamp and is also from Michael's
Gold Embossing ink and Powder
Cuttlebug Folder "Stars"
Various different Christmas Papers
Christmas Ribbon from last year

Well, thanks for stopping by and taking a look at what I have been doing and I hope that you have wonderful day!
