It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

So I've been a card making fool trying to get a bunch of cards made for a craft show on Saturday! Here is a sampling of Christmas cards I've created. If they don't sell I have a good start on my own personal holiday cards, LOL!


This reindeer is from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge cut at 3". I used Christmas Red Stickles to bling his nose and red flocking on his scarf. The sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts and I dotted the "i" with a star brad. I also used my i-rock to add the rhinestones to the card.


Santa was created using the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. I cut him at 4". I used the red flocking on his suit. He is so soft and fuzzy!


This Christmas Tree is a die cut from a Paper Stack (K & Company I think) and so is the paper. I used some CTMH Liquid Glass on the ornaments to make them pop.


This reindeer is similar to the first one. For this card I used my Glimmer Mist to turn the sentiments background green. I also used the i-rock to add a few gems to this card. I also used my Cuttlebug to emboss the white background sheet. I like how the plate didn't have to be holiday themed to look fantastic on this card!


I use so thrilled with this last card. The wreath is cut from the Christmas Cheer cartridge at 3 1/2". Then I used an already embossed piece of green card stock to do the leaves that are layered. Next I cut the word "Joy" using the Opposites Attract cartridge at 1 3/4" from gold glitter cardstock. I used the Christmas Red Stickles to color the berries after I applied them to the wreath. Then I embossed the red background with the Devine Swirl folder.

Thanks for looking at my cards! Remember to check back October 1st for detail about the blog candy giveaway... right now I can tell you that I will be including a brand new Glue Glider Pro in the package so stay tuned!
