Stenciled Borders - Christmas

Six more Christmas cards for this year - for me to use or to give away. These all use some of my new Christmas stencil borders. They are finished in various ways and include stamps from many companies. This first one also uses a Sizzix folder.
I added Stickles for the holly berries.

Stenciled Birthday



I got some stencils for Christmas, and I did a lot of pieces with them. I guess it's time to start sharing those. I used two (possibly three?) colors on this one. I added a thin strip of black cardstock at the bottom of the panel. The "happy" was the last of the die-cuts that I did with my glitter cardstock. The "Birthday" is part of a stamp from Stampabilities.

Tiny Butterfly Hello



I used up some more card parts on this card. I'm not sure how I can still have SO many to use!! I had die-cut this tag a short while ago as an example for my husband. Instead of tossing it, I decided to put it on a card. The little butterflies were left over after our granddaughter's stay here in October. She drew them, based on a stamp that I had. I had colored them, cut them with a tiny circle punch, and put foam squares on them. I also added Wink of Stella to them. The sentiment was one that I cut while on a die-cutting spree recently. It's made with glitter cardstock. The patterned paper on top is from an old Recollections matstack. I embossed the bottom part of the panel with a Darice embossing folder. I also lightly added soft pink to the tag, the butterfly circles and the bottom of the panel. I scored lines on the white panel and on the tag with my Scor-Pal.

And Even More Valentines!

Lots of glittery die-cut hearts. They are all mounted on foam squares. The backgrounds are all embossed with Darice folders. The sentiment on all of them is from Inkadinkado. I cut the sentiment into a banner and mounted it on foam squares, also.

More Valentines

Two more valentines, and more to come tomorrow. Not sure what I'll do with all of them. I won't be seeing my friend who works at the thrift store, so I can't donate them. They are too "pink and feminine" to give to my grandsons. Maybe they'll keep til next year when I can donate them. Or maybe I'll figure out someone to send them to. At any rate, I'll be sharing them here. The die-cuts (the main image and the bow) were die-cut when I did so many the week before last. The background panel on this card was done many, many years ago while cleaning off my brayer! The sentiment is from Inkadinkado.

Same thing - different background. The paper on this one is from a Recollections paper pad.
