Merry, Merry!!

The holidays are just around the corner and time to start thinking about Christmas cards.  I usually make all of my Christmas cards and have already started.  Hope to have them done by Thanksgiving and in the mail by Black Friday....


This card was created using the October Early Christmas Deal of the Month.  I just love the Fuzzy Daisies and used it on this card to make a poinsettia by pinching the ends.  Added the Clear Vintage Jewels for the center and colored with copic markers to make it look like the yellow brachs in the center.  For the background I used the Sizzix Powdered Sugar embossing folder and cut the holly leaves on my Cricut expression using the Make the Cut software.  For the sentiment I used a Rubber Stamped stamp and punched it out with the SU oval punch and added the green background with a SU scallop oval punch.  Added some red ric rac ribbon and backed this all with green glitter cardstock.







Here are some Christmas Cards I made for World Card Making Day.  On this one I used one of the new Creative Charms Christmas Twinkle Multidimensional Stickers for the sentiment.

This card uses the new Vintage Accent Frames to make my own embellishments.  Also used the JustRite Hearts Come Home stamp set for the center. The bottom border was created with a MS border punch.  Used Bazzill CS for the card base and SU designer paper from last year.

I love how these embellishments make card making so easy and so quick.

OMG Ellen, I need those red poinsettias now in the early deal--that is way too cute--very vintage looking.
