Tis the Season!

Just making Christmas cards is getting me right into the spirit of the Season, it is sneaking up so quickly, only 7 weeks to go! I think there is nothing nicer than receiving a handmade Christmas card from someone…. you know that person put extra special time and care into it …. JUST FOR YOU!

I created this one last week, it’s a very quick simple card, again using the Season of Joy set. I love the simplicity of Gold and White at Christmas, but didn’t have any Gold cardstock, so…… I used Saraha Sand and white cardstock. Next I used the River Rock Stampin’ pad on the background for the swirls, small flowers, and the three snowflakes (this colour almost passes off as Gold). Then, because I didn’t have a SU gold embossing pad, I stamped the main image into the versamark first and then into the River rock and embossed with Gold… worked great!

Always luurv to finish with bling, so with the 2 way glue pen, I applied dazzling diamonds to the background, added the Crystal Effects to the dots around the snowflakes and placed gold brads in the middle of each of them. Hope you can see this.

Also made the little boxes in similar colours, great for making a small gift look that little more special.

I hope you like?

Hi Tracey
These cards are auwsome!! You are very creative.
The White squigles on my card you asked about are done with the white gel pen.. an 's' shape then a 'dot' and a back-ter-front 's'. Does that make sense???
Love Jeanne

You will do fine with your first party, once you've done your first you'll be on fire, believe me. Goodluck with it all and I hope all goes well with your DAD, will keep you all in my prayers.
