Blessed Christmas to you all! Today is Christmas Eve and the last day of my Christmas Cards posts for 2018.

I am looking forward to being with my lovely family tonight and tomorrow. May all your celebrations be filled with joy and laughter….and of course, yummy food.

This card is absolutely stunning when you see it in person!

Supplies: Birch Press Grace Dies A, B, & C; We R Memory Keepers 3″ Circle Nesting Dies, Neenah Solar White Classic Crest card stock #80, #110; Spellbinder‘s Glimmer Hot Foil Plate – Joy; Go Press and Foil Gold Foil, American Crafts Core’dinations Kings Crown Glitter Card stock.

To make this card you cut one of each Birch Press Die A, B, & C. Stack them one on top of the other and use liquid glue to adhere them together. On a piece of white card stock, use Go Press & Foil machine to foil the word Joy onto the card stock. Center and cut out the foiled Joy with the 3″ circle die.

Glue the circle in the center of the background die cuts. Put the gold glitter card stock in back of the card front then adhere to a card base. It’s that easy…and oh so beautiful.

Merry Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you!

Christmas Cards – Day 2

Hello out there! Merry Christmas!!

Today I am even more ambitious, than yesterday, with five cards using one main stamp set. Today’s featured stamp set is Concord & 9th’s Snowflakes Turnabout Stamp Set. I love this stamp set and will continue to make cards with it throughout the winter months ahead.

Let me show you my first card.

The second card I have is the exact same layout only using Altenew Crisp Dye Inks in the following colors: Pink Pearl, Rouge, Blush, Coral Bliss and Vineyard Berry.

My third card has an oval stitched cut out as the center focal point with snowflakes dancing around the edges.
