A Few More Christmas Cards

My sister Sharon and our cousin Carol came over today and we made Christmas cards. My daughter Allie came by too, and we all zipped over to my Mom's house (she lives next door) for some fresh baked Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip cookies. What a great day!


This one is made with a new Squigglefly image called Bare Tree by Pamela Lehto. Such a cute image! I am entering this in the Christmas Card Challenge #49 - Dimension.


I did this one for the MIX41 Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. The challenge is to use no paper other than as a card base. I used some foil tap which I embossed and cut out using the Tim Holtz Tattered Flower die. The center of the flower is a Jolee's sticker given to me by a sweet friend for my birthday. I added a bit of Stickles to the greenery from a Dollar Tree pick.


This card is made with an image new to Squigglefly by Dawn Collins called Patchwork Bird. I love this bird and I have several more ideas for Christmas cards made with it.

Hugz!

  4. Nancy I just adore the color scheme on these. Your first card has such great texture, and I love the raffia and the piercing you did. Your second card looks like a vintage Christmas card. I love all the different embossing textures on your flower. The last card is really cute and you picked a great sentiment to go with it. You are getting quite a pile of Christmas cards!

  7. Nice productive day you had making these beautiful cards, but the best part, I'm sure, was spending time with family and eating those delicious sounding cookies. Maybe I'll come down to visit your Mom someday soon and get some of those cookies for myself. YUM!! LOL Enjoy your Sunday

    Loving your cards I especially like your first one, not that there is anything wrong with the others of course.

  13. Awesome cards. I love the little tree with the ice/glitter effect. It's so very sweet. Very creative putting the tree die behind the focal point to.
