More Christmas Cards

I've really been enjoying making these Christmas cards for this weekend's Christmas Card Stamp & Swap. I used the On Board Simon Lower Letters for the "H" and covered it with papers from the Dashing set. The Happy Holidays (from "Many Merry Messages") is stamped on Wild Wasabi and underlined with Wild Wasabi double stiched ribbon. The tree is from "Loads of Love" and the card and grossgrain ribbon on the "H" are both "Real Red". All items are SU! copyright 1996-2007 Stampin' Up! (r).

The first time I was the "Holy Triptych" stamp set, I was extremely excited to get it in my hands and start playing with it. Well, I've had a really hard time actually producing anything I was happy with. . . until this card. The greens include, "wild wasabi", "handsome hunter", & "certainly celery". The paper is from the "Wintergreen" set. I'm fairly pleased with the way this one turned out.
This next card didn't turn out quite the way I had imagined. I used my versamark pen to silver emboss the end of the ornament (from "Sparkling Sayings"). The paper is from "Dashing" nad the tree is from the hostess set "Perfect Presentation". The silver eyelets seemed to tie in well with the silver on the ornament and the silver elastic cord from the mini catalog.

I also like this card. the paper is from the set "Wintergreen". The stamp is from the hostess set "Sidekick Sayings".

I'm really excited for the upcoming party, and also excited about the World Card Making Day party the following weekend. Come join us!
