As promised, more Christmas card ideas!

So this is a card I actually whipped up pretty quick. It is cased from one I designed a long time ago. I sold a pack of these this weekend- they were the most elegant and formal I had. I will make more I think! The card base is Purely Pomegranate with the Stitched background stamped in Chocolate chip. The "frame" around the sentiment is just done with the crimper on all 4 sides. The Joy image from Illuminations stamp set is embossed in gold. The ribbon is the wide satin in pomegranate also left over from last year. So glad I have plenty left! This card was inspired by one on the SCS gallery (I'll have to go find it again). I'd never really used this stamp set- Sidekick Sayings- that was a hostess set last year I think. I like the idea and design, but I don't like the stress of trying to make out the words. At first, while making this, I wasn't really sure until I layered it on the Soft Sky and added the rhinestone brad. Then it grew on me. Ink and cardstock are Blue Bayou and Soft Sky (old In Colors). The giant snowflake is the old background stamp called Supersize Snowflake that is retired now.
More Pomegranate here. This is a twist on the wreath card I posted a while back. I replaced the brads with a few 1/8" hole punches and voila! I really like how it turned out. I'll probably make more of these as well- quite easy. Stamps include: Snow Burst and retired Fancy Flexible Phrases (one of my favorites!). Ink is Always Artichoke and Purely Pomegranate.

I'm so glad you stopped by today! Come again soon!
