Christmas Cards

 Yesterday was finals for me, so today I am re-couping, relaxing, and making some cards.  This first one I made for Frosted Designs 5th day of Christmas Challenge : 5 things of gold

These are the stamps I used
It has 7 gold brads, the background is stamped in gold ink, the edges are done with a gold leaf pen, and there is a gold cord wrapped with the ribbon.  I liked this one so much I made 6 of them.

The next one was done for Cas-ual Fridays Knotty or Nice Challenge.  The ribbon is in a knot, and I knotted on a bell too!

Doh, I got sidetracked and missed the deadline for this one by a couple hours :(

Next I made two for the Less is More One Layer "in a row" challenge.  My snowflakes are sort of in a row, so hopefully they count.  I used punched snowflakes as masks and then sponged on some blue.  They look sort of blotchy in the photo, but they are quite soft in real life, I liked them so much I made several to send out.  The second entry is a $1 stamp from Micheals I've had for years, its a cutie.  I used a score pal and cuttlebug folder to emboss.

Thanks for looking!  Tomorrow I'm working on gifts!
