Better Late Than Never?

Well, here are some shots of my Christmas cards that I made for December 2010. I made a couple of different variations on the same design, just used different patterned paper. I used a cut file from My ScrapChick for the ornaments. I typed up the lyrics to 'Joy to the World', and copied it enough times to fill up my card base. I printed the song onto my craft cardstock card base. Any questions? Leave me a message with a way to get back to you :)

Birthday Card for my Cousin

Here is a card I made for my cousin Julie. I made the dog house for the front. For the roof I used my Martha Stewart embossing board to add some texture. I cut a circle for the sun and trimmed it to fit the corner and then I colored some rays on with a prismacolor pencil. I cut a door with my spellbinders nestabilities and made a fold line so you can peek in through the hole cut in the card front also cut with my nestabilities. Any questions? Leave a comment with a way for me to get ahold of you :)

Papertrey Ink Contest

Here is a card that I made for my cousin Melissa's birthday. On the front of the card I cut a circle with my circle spellbinders nestabilities. I made a circle frame and used strips of paper to make a lattice design. I then attached the frame and lattice to the front of the card. Then I added a hero arts butterfly stamp I colored and cut out.

On the inside of the card I used two stamps from the In Bloom set. I stamped the flower and then made a mask of the flower so I could stamp the leaves. I placed the paper that I cut off from around the flower mask to mask around the flower so I could use some milled lavender distress ink to color the flower. I then added some shading to the flower and colored the leaves with some prismacolor pencils. Then I went around the outside of the flower and leaves with a grey copic.
