Christmas Cards I Made This Year

Hi Everybody!

I just want to say Merry Christmas to all of my card making friends.  I did not have as much time as I wanted to make Christmas cards this year so I wanted to post the two types that I did make. 

I love this stamp from Crafter's Companion called Let It Snow.  I colored him with Copics.  There is another cute one with Barkley on it called 1st Class Christmas.  This card got a lot of attention on some of my card groups and people were saying they couldn't find it or everyone was out.  I'm not sure how I got so lucky to get both.  I buy a lot of this kind of stuff from a lady on Facebook named, Deb Sclafoni.  I buy stamps and dies from  her and she is fabulous, ships fast.  I buy my Copics from Terri Olsen from Stamps Alive.  She has great prices on markers and refills and ships super fast as well.  

How cute is this stamp?  The inside stamp is from I Brake For Stamps called Best Wishes Christmas Tree.

I love the inside stamp because it can be embossed.  I embossed it here in black and have embossed in silver as well.  It's the perfect stamp to say everything you want to say.  

I used a Spellbinder's die for the other card that covers the entire card front called Holiday Greetings.  

I put different color backgrounds behind the die and different dies inside and some of the punch outs from the die on front, such as here, I used the snowflakes.  These were pretty fast to make.  

I have heard many people say they didn't have time this year to make Christmas cards so they were going to make New Year's Cards.  I think that is a fabulous idea because people won't expect to get a card after first of the year.  My post tomorrow will show a New Year's Card......

I hope you have a wonderful holiday!  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
