Let it Snow Christmas Card

I looooooove the Basic Grey ribbon. It adds a gorgeous upholstery detail to the card. I don't have it going all the way under the raised middle panel because I only have two feet of this trim and so I feel the need to ration it.

Two Scroll Christmas Cards

My little 10 year old card-making apprentice designed this one. She picked the papers, greeting, tree, corner punch, and really wanted the glitter on the scroll work. I think she did a great job!

Here is the one I made at the same time with the ice Stickles on the snowflakes. I had fun with this. I like how the movement of the snow and wind is captured by the swirl.

Christmas Card

Embossed with Winter Wonderland embossing powder, which is essentially white with silver glitter in it. The tree really isn't large enough for what I wanted to achieve here. I will do it differently next time.

Holiday Cheer Snowman Cards

I was having a bit of fun stamping and using my markers.

Precious New Baby Card

I love how this one turned out. I didn't know if the baby was a boy or a girl (it was a boy) so I wanted to send a card that would work either way. The baby carriage is heat embossed with clear sparkling embossing powder over blue ink. The picture isn't the best since I had the camera on the wrong setting (oops) and the card is now long-gone. Ah well.

This way or that way?

Here are a pair of note cards suitable for pretty much any occasion. I tend to design my cards as tent cards or horizontally. I was pleased to see that these could be turned on their side and used in either orientation.
