Christmas cards - ready for the mail!

I know I said I wasn't going to make my Christmas cards this year but I did anyhow - I just had to! After all, I bought some of the cutest stamps from The Cat's Pajamas and I really needed to use them. So I am finally all done, they are signed, addressed, sealed and stamped and will hit the mailbox Monday morning - just in time for (most of) them to arrive by Christmas Day!

There are three designs - here are the 1st two:




The paper is from Close To My Heart and the white border was run through the snowflake Cuttlebug folder - might be hard to see the details. The images were colored with Copics and I added Diamond Stickles in a few spots to add some shine -



You can see some of the sparkle on this close-up. The third design, also from TCP, is this beautiful, elegant cardinal wreath:



The background paper is holiday stationary I found in packs of red, blue, silver and gold at Target. It has a little shine to it but it didn't pick up well in the photo. The image was stamped with Memento ink, colored with Copics and highlighted with red Stickles. The border at the bottom was punched with a Fiskars border punch. All images were cut with Nestabilities.

So off to the P.O. you go cards! I'm happy to have that project wrapped up!
