Christmas Cards Traditional

The cards today are constructed the old fashion way - with DSP, scissors, paper trimmer, and snail. The first card uses items from the Holiday mini "Christmas Lodge" stamp set, DSP paper from "Frostwood Lodge" set, holly from the "Stocking Accents" die, Cherry Cobbler "Quilted Satin Ribbon" and berries from SU red glitter paper. The card base is Crumb Cake CS, layered with Always Artichoke CS, and topped with Cherry Cobbler CS embossed with the "Snow Burst" folder.The holly leaves were embossed with the SU "spider Web" folderto add some depth.
The next card is a CASE from Connie Babbert and others using a leaf from the French Foliage stamp set. I stamped each petal using SU Very Vanilla on Cherry Cobbler card stock and than covered each leaf with Versa Mark and Iridescent ice embossing powder. In the center of the poinsettia I used a half inch circle punch of Daffodil Delight CS decorated with SU Basic Pearls. The rest of the card is very basic with the card base being " Riding Hood Red, Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla embossed with the "Snow Burst" folder. Always Artichoke seam binding is used as is a saying from the "Four the Holidays Stamp set."
