More Holly

I really did well using up my die cuts from our Group Gathering last summer. For this card, I used the holly die-cut from silver. I matted with dark blue. I added red gems for the berries. (I actually used up something! Now I have no red gems left. :( ) The sentiment was embossed with silver and is from Recollections. It is mounted on foam squares.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Holly Season's Greetings

I used another die-cut from last summer for this card. I matted it with dark green cardstock. I added red/gold Stickles for the berries. The sentiment is from Recollections. I first stamped it with dark green, but I didn't like how hard I had pressed. So, I stamped over it lightly with black.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Sparkly Ornament Christmas

This card started with the ornament die-cut - which I did in June. I added a couple layers of sparkly embossing powder on it, and then two layers of ultra-thick embossing powder. I matted the ornament with blue and mounted it on foam squares. The bottom layer of matting is from a matstack from Recollections. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. Hard to see in the picture, but the curlicue lines on the matting are silver.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Happy Birthday, Owen!

Our middle grandson just turned eight on Thursday. He was having a video game party for his birthday party, and they were using the original Nintendo Entertainment System as one of the gaming systems, so this is the card I made for him. I printed the image using an on-line photo, and I used photo paper for it. I cut out a few of the buttons and raised them up. For the control on the left, I made sure to not pop up the middle, since they are toggle switches.


You can see a bit more of the dimension in this photo on the left.

And this is what it said on the inside.

Hope you had a fun party, Owen!

Silver Ornament

Another die cut from June from our Group Gathering. I cut this one out of silver metallic cardstock. I mounted it on foam squares. The patterned cardstock is from a stack by The Paper Studio. The sentiment is from Recollections and is embossed with silver embossing powder.
