"Christmas Sunday"

Well, these two are the last of my Christmas cards for this year. Yippee!! I still have to stamp on the insides, but at least the outsides are all done. I have the labels ready for the envelopes, too. I'm keeping up with my plan to be ALL ready for Christmas by Thanksgiving.

Both of these cards use a Lasting Impressions brass stencil and embossing paste - different kinds of paste, though. This first one uses Glossy White paste. After spreading it through the stencil, I sprinkled it with glitter. I matted with white and mounted on foam squares. The background was embossed with a Sizzix folder.
This second one uses what is simply called "Embossing Paste." Before spreading on the paste, I stippled with Real Red. I added glitter to this one, too, and mounted on foam squares. The patterned paper is from Recollections and is matted with New Leaf from Papertrey Ink. The sentiment panel is matted with Real Red. The ribbon was laying on my table - from a package of some sort, I believe.

EDITED TO ADD: I'm linking these cards up the the Christmas Card Challenge blog once again.

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