More Christmas Cards

Here are some more cards from the workshops I recently did.  These are more simple, but perfect mass production or for those people who may need the most fanciest of your handiwork.  Let's face it, not everyone understands handmade cards.  

I love the color scheme for these cards.  All of this product was via Stampin UP.  This is basically just layering, adding some snowflakes, bling and sentiments.  

It's hard to tell here, but the white paper below has a shimmer to it (and is really quite pretty).

Elegant Pointcettia Christmas Card

Here is another card from the workshops I did a couple of weeks ago.  This is one of my favorites and not too complicated so it's easy to duplicate for many xmas cards. 

All products are by Stampin up including the very pretty snowflaky bling in the center of the poinsettia. 

You stamp an image on velum with versa mark, pick your embossing powder color, cut it out and voila, dimensional poinsettia!!

Santa Baby

Hellllloooo everyone.  Recently I joined a card class to get a jump on my xmas cards.  I'll be showcasing them in the next few weeks.  All the product shown is by Stampin Up.  We tried it with a couple of different ribbons for different looks. 

I really like the old vintage color scheme we used on this one.  And who doesn't love dazzling diamonds!

First Christmas Card!

I think, like many card makers, that I got into this hobby thinking I could SAVE money by making my own Christmas cards.  Well... that's wrong, mostly cause we crafters want more and more stamps and more and more product!!!  Before you know,  you have an entire room dedicated to making cards.  At least that's what I did.  :)

Tri-fold cards are uber fun with all the space and nooks and crannies they have.

The two copic colored images are BirgittaSanta from CC Designs and the other is Jana (Instyle Stamps).  I used a snowflake punch and the other unique punch both from Martha Stewart.  The snowflakes and bling are from my very old stash of winter goodies.

Here's the tutorial

Hope you've liked today's card,
