Playing with winter cards

Last night I spent some time playing with holiday card ideas.  Now anyone who knows me knows that I do not actually send out home made holiday cards. I order fancy photo cards and send out pictures of my kids.  As much as I love crafting and creating I'm very self conscious about my art.  I really create thing s just for me.  I have boxes of ready to go cards that I may never use but I love the process :). 

This is such a simple and lovely card.  I used a CTMH stamp set from the current idea book for the image.  I embossed and inked up a mat layer to coordinate with the stamped image.  Matted the stamped layer on silver glitter paper and added a ribbon. So simple yet the finished look is beautiful .

This second card used a similar technique.  I used a CTMH stamp and this time used an embossing ink pad and red embossing powder.  I embossed a mat layer and inked it up to match.  Matted the stamped image on silver glitter card stock and added a ribbon to finish it off

The two cards have joint the others in my stash just waiting for the day the will get used.

Thanks for stopping by. 



  1. I want one of the homemade ones and a picture of your family. I am picky and do not want a bought one because yours are always beautiful.

  2. Very pretty cards. Send these out!

  3. Since you don't actually send card, maybe I will use your ideas.
