More Christmas Cards

So, I am really making some headway on my Christmas cards, but I am no where near done yet...yikes!! Hopefully, you aren't sick of seeing Christmas cards yet!! For this card, or cards, I decided to use Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday sketch from yesterday. I was going to use the super cute snowmen, but I wanted to do something a little more elegant, so this is what I came up with...pretty huh!!! I used the Verve Stamps set, Poinsettia Christmas. I stamped the poinsettias with Black Stazon on Very Vanilla, and colored them in using my Riding Hood Red reinker and a blender pen. I then cut them out and added three of them to my long panel, the center one is up on a pop dot. I then layered them with PTI Spring Moss, SU Kiwi Kiss and Riding Hood Red. The centers were colored in with my gold gel pen. I the DP is from Webster's Pages(Winter Wonderland Collection- Candy Cane) and was on sale in the Paper Prettie's Store. It is no longer available, but there are still some fabulous things there to look at, and it is still marked down 75%!! It was layered with a piece of Riding Hood Red, which I used my SU scalloped edge punch on. The ribbon is retired SU Gold Organdy..yummy stuff!! I embossed my Vanilla layer with my Cuttlebug and Textile folder AFTER I stamped my sentiment in Black. I did some piercing and then added a few gold brads and it was done. The card in the back was my first version, but I couldn't decide which one I liked better, so I decided I would let YOU all see both, and you can tell me which one YOU like better!! That is it for me now...thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
