Christmas Carols


Hi everyone, sorry I've been MIA this week.  I went through my stash of Christmas cards earlier this week, and just about had a panic attack when I discovered I was about twenty cards short.  I did get about 10 cards made over the last couple of days between Christmas shopping, chores and such; and hope to get the rest finished over the weekend.  Although I vowed to make more postage-friendly cards this year, this one had a mind of its own...

 I used a Tim Holtz stamp, added lots of layers and embossing, and finished it with a fun flower I created with punches and dies.   Wonder how much postage this one will take?  

I will be entering this in the Creative Card Crew Challenge -- Anything Goes

Have a great weekend and thanks for taking the time to stop by!

Supplies: Stamp - Tim Holtz Component Collection; Paper - Deja' Views DSP, MM Noel card pad, Jingle Bells Music-Flair Designs, SU! naturals ivory and sage shadow; Ink - Versafine smokey gray; Accessories - Marvy flower punch, Sizzix branch with leaves die, SU! embossing folder, sanding block, deckle scissors, fancy brad and dimensionals from my stash.

  8. Beautiful card, Pat. "A mind of it's own".. Too funny. I make that same vow every year, too, but those cards really do seem to ignore it don't they! lol Well I love all the dimension and textures here!

  9. Beautiful! I love the scalloped bottom and how you did your flower. Good luck with those cards; I always seem to be behind, too. It's fun making them, but I hate having to address the envelopes--ha! ha!
