Christmas Cards

I received a few cards after Christmas so I needed to make a few more cards to either mail or drop off. I pulled out Unity Stamp KOTM October 2016 {holiday hugs}  stamp set and the 8x8 Pressed Petal paper pack to make some Christmas Cards.

Card #1: Holiday Hugs on white cardstock:

I stamped, embossed with black, then colored in my image. I used the largest Labels 36 die to cut the bottom edge of the card. The envelope is stamped and embossed with blue ink.


Card #2 Holiday Hugs on kraft cardstock:

I did the same process above except I changed out my paper and used silver embossing powder on the envelope.


Card #3 Silver Bells on White cardstock:

I stamped, embossed, colored and cut out the panel. I added some of the glitter enamel dots that were in my kit.


Card #4 Silver Bells on Kraft cardstock:

I did the same process as above and used the Silver glimmer paper for my card base. I'm not quite sure why the embossed snowflakes on the envelope look silver sometimes and at others a goldish color.


Cards #5 and 6 on White Cardstock:

This was the last set of cards that I made. I stamped, embossed, fussy cut my image, colored in the "joy" banner on the bulb then added to a vellum banner behind it. I wanted the background behind the image to be just a little bit subtler.


I added twine around the top of the banner to finish off the card. The envelope is stamped with the snowflake trio stamp and the large snowflake stamp. I heat embossed with blue.

Here is both cards - I forgot to stamp one on the Kraft cardstock so both are on white.


Thanks for stopping by.
