These are a couple more cards I made last weekend.
I thought it would be fun to make a Christmas present card, the printed paper is from K & Company. I used Make the Cut! to create the tag, grunged it up a bit with some Tim Holtz distress ink and embossed the sentiment and little holly. The ribbon is wired, which makes it nice and easy to give the bow its shape.
For this card, I used printed paper by K & Company again (they came out with a couple mini paper pads for Christmas that are perfect for cardmaking). I used a large snowflake stamp by Hero Arts and clear embossing powder to add a little shininess to the background (although it is difficult to see in the photos), and stitched around the edge with silver thread. I downloaded a snowflake image from the web, traced it in Make the Cut! and then created a black-out shadow layer. The snowflake is cut from vellum and the shadow layer is cut from dark blue cardstock. Then I stitched the vellum and cardstock layers together using the same silver thread and added some gems to the snowflake to give it a little bling. The snowflake is adhered to the card with dimensional foam.
