Christmas Cards

I have started making a few Christmas Cards. Some are to sell (the LSS sells my cards for me) and some are to send out to family and friends. This first image is a bit washed out, and it is hard to see but the red cardstock is embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder before being sewn around the edges.
Supplies: SU cardstock in real red, basic black, whisper white, marigold morning. Image by Stamp-It. Coloured with Prisma pencils and gamsol. Dimensional magic used on the berries. Long rectangles nestabilities for matting and just some sewing around the edges. I made 10 of these ones :)

I thought this might be a nice card for my friends over the ocean who celebrate a white Christmas. Supplies: card in white and cool caribbean, snowflake stampset by Kaiser, CB Embossing folder, nestabilities for the circular matting and some ribbon. I distressed the edges with the Heidi Swapp edge distresser.

We're definitely going all out... now if I could jsut catch my blog up to the present I could actually show people what I've been doing!
