More Christmas

Well, I was very disappointed this weekend.  I had a table at our church's annual Cookies Galore.  I only sold 7 cards and a couple of gift tags.  And no one even looked at the stationery boxes I made.  Oh, well.

So, here are a few more Christmas cards that I made. Some are from a few weeks ago that I'm just now posting.  I also made about 40 photo cards (thinking I wouldn't have enough merchandise this weekend).  I think I need to take a break for a while now.  I have enough cards to last for every imaginable occasion for about the next 5 years!

Both of these cards used stamps from SU!s Holy Triptych. The one at the left also used  Gina K stamps.  The image and sentiment were stamped over a text stamp (Gina K).  The angel was then embossed in blue, with dazzling diamonds wings.  The BP was made from images of vintage Christmas angels that I put into a table and printed.  The card at right is also embossed.  The BP is a color core paper that was run through in a Cuttlebug folder, then sanded.

The card at the left used no stamps.  The patterned paper is divided with a piece of ribbon.  The music is a piece I copied from a music book of mine onto a piece of parchment colored paper.  The snowflake was die-cut and embellished with a green stick on jewel.

At the right is a tag made with a combinations of stamps and embossing.  The stamps are all Gina K.  The BP is embossed with an SU texture plate, then rubed over with red and gold stamp pads.  The
poinsettias were stamped in solid, then the veins were embossed with Red Dragon embossing powder.  The end of the tag is punched with an SU! punch.

These three cards all use the Gina K. Heirloom Ornaments set, as well as sentiments from Fanciful Tags. The BP of the focal image at the left is another piece of scanned music.  For the bottom card, I stamped in red on SU! wedding paper, then clear embossed it.  Then I brayered over it with Glorious Green ink.  The sentiment is embossed in red.  Pearls add embellishment
                                                      The card at right is just stamped.                      

 These cards are both made with SU!s vintage Christmas stamp.  I stamped in versamark and embossed in gold.  The card on the left was then colored with ink and sponge, with the ribbon held on by an antique brad.  At right the BP is a dictionary page I scanned and printed on parchment colored paper.  The sentiment is embossed in red, with a red & gold ribbon added for accent.

 Both these cards are made from copies of vintage postcards.  I then used versamark on the tops of them to be able to add gold embossing powder.  The card on the left has a gold border also made with embossing powder.
