Christmas Wishes

Hi everyone,

Well as you can tell it is that time of year to start the Christmas cards. I need to make quite a few so here is my first this year. I am using a finished card  base that is 5 x 5. The green layer is SU mossy meadow  4.75 x 4.75 and the white layer on top is 4 x 4. I have used a stamp set called oriental Pine. I love the pine needles. I stamped them in mossy meadow ink. I then added the ornament from the set and stamped it with pacific point ink. I then re-stamped it with versa mark and embossed it with wow glitter powder. As usual the photo does not do it justice.  The bow on top of the ornament has  glitter. The sentiment was straight across but it didn't suit my needs so I cut it between the two words. I can put them together as one word if I need to. The pine cones are a spellbinders die. I used kraft card stock to cut them out and used distress inks to darken the edges. They are popped up with dimentional's. I will add my card into this challenge.

Birthday Wishes

I think the set is called layering butterflies

Hello everyone,

School has started here so there is lots of activity in the stores. I stayed home and created some cards. The above finished card is a 5.5 x 5.5 . I added an embossing border  around the edges and then layered neenah card stock layer that I used a grey distress ink for more interest and to make it pop. I embossed the layer with SU butterfly folder. The stripes are a silver washi tape and I added two pieces to the center and used one for the banner. The thread in the center is silver twisted around my hand to make the circles. The top butterfly is stamped in perfect plum and the bottom on in pretty in pink. I colored the pearls to match the butterflies. I cut a banner in neenah white and stamped birthday wishes from another stamp set and added more pearls. 

I would like to add this card in the challenge
