Cards, Cards, and more Christmas Cards!

Good morning everyone!

Hope you are all enjoying the holiday season!

Today I am sharing some handmade Christmas cards that are full of holiday cheer!

The first pretty and festive card is from Lynne, using our
Scraps Of Elegance December kit: Silver Bells.


Lynne did a lot of fussy cutting of the beautiful Graphic 45 Christmas Carol paper from the kit, using foam dots for added dimension and twine for texture!  She also dabbed a bit of glossy accents on the berries to add a bit of shine!

Next is my turn with 4 cards I created for friends, using the 
Scraps of Darkness December kit, Wilma's Winter Wishes.
 I used the Cafe Ole cardstock from the cardstock add on

to create the layers along with the BoBunny Whiteout papers from the main kit and patterned paper add on!

The beautiful glittered paper adds a lot of sparkle - perfect for my card!
 I used the Tim Holtz tattered poinsettia die to create my flower that I highlighted with Prima midnight blue glass glitter and used a BoBunny Sleigh Ride Brad for the center, both are from the Elements Add On



My second card I think is my favorite....

I LOVE the glittery paper....

Using a pattern I had, I created the shape of the card.

I die cut three poinsettia's and used the tree stamp from the October SOD kit.  To create the snow I used I mixed gesso, modeling paste, and the mica powder from the Scraps Of Elegance December color add on.

I misted a doily with Lindy's mist from a previous kit.
I also used the BoBunny Sleigh Ride brads from the Elements Add On for centers on my poinsettias. 

I outlined the card with perfect pearls - also from a previous kit,

and punched a few snowflakes.
 This was a fun and sparkly card to make! I created the card using a piece of the Ocean side cardstock from the cardstock add on for the base. I then added a few layers of the kit paper and I die cut a few wintery flourishes using the Wild Rose Studios 'Icy Wind' die from the Elements Add On


I added some other elements including ZVA gems from the Elements Add On and a piece of BoBunny Sleigh Ride Layered Chipboard from the main kit.  I also added some of the awesome Prima midnight blue glass glitter from the elements add on.


I also created a masculine Christmas card for a friend of ours...


I cut out one of the images from the BoBunny paper then added the die cuts for a simple but sweet card!

Thanks for stopping by!
