Christmas Card Variety

I had great fun participating in a Christmas card swap with a few of my dear friends...below is the card sets I put together.

I had a blast making this card. I saw the design concept used by fellow CTMH sister Jennifer Rubio. I love the versatility. Not only can you use it for Christmas, you can make Birthday, Wedding cards. Maybe I will work on one of each to show the difference. The paper used is Sparkle & Shine. I distressed the edges using black ink. The bow was cut using the Artiste cricut cart.

I used retired Pear & Partridge paper for this card. The shape of the focal point was cut using Art Philosophy. I used the Remarkable Wreath stamp set. Added some dimension to pop up the bow and a bitty sparkle. I used cocoa, ruby and topiary ink.  The card stock is Topiary and Colonial White.

 I fell in love with Frosted when I saw this patterned paper. The snowflake was cut using the Art Philosophy cart. I glittered it up however the camera didn't capture it well. It made it so elegant looking. I added the silver shimmer trim which is always fun as it already has adhesive on the back. Did you know you can purchase shimmer trim in black, red and bronze??

How cute is this penguin?? ADORABLE...this stamp set is from the Hostess Rewards set. The card base is a Center Step Card. I used a youtube video to instruct me how to cut and score. I added some glitter to the santa hat and a bitty sparkle to the snowflake. The paper is Sparkle & Shine with White Daisy card stock
I hope you enjoy and find inspiration in these cards. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!
