Christmas Thank You Card

I used one of the WMS frame stamps but inked the reverse side around the edges for a 'grunge' or distressed-looking frame, added the holly and berries.

For the pine branches, I masked the frame area and then stamped off randomly; some branches are stamped off and some aren't.

I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch the two circles on either side of the berries, and wrapped PTI baker's twine around and through the holes, tied in a knot.

Also, I applied glue to the outer edge of the frame, holly leaf tips and berries, then "frosted" with SU Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

Thanks for visiting!!

Festive Foilage

I am so sorry for missing my day the last two weeks, the holiday season has me out of town and running here, there, and everywhere! Hopefully I am home for awhile now. I have a couple of festive foliage cards here. Simple, one layer and easy to mail! Enjoy and happy holidays!

Tree card

WMS Tree

Happy 1st of December!

I created this card using stamps from Nutcracker Sweet: the tree and the bow image. I stamped and then colored with my Copic markers. I'm still debating on adding a sentiment to the front, or just making something on the inside.

Thanks for looking!

Stamps: Nutcracker Sweet
Ink: Rich Cocoa (Memento), Pure Poppy (PTI), Walnut Stain (Ranger)
