I had a friend over today to make some cards. She is trying to decide what she wants to get to make her cards for this year. These are just 3 of the ones we made and the middle one is not really in the running. Just playing around with that one.
The top card is actually a gate fold which you really can't see since the card was scanned. I love doing gate folds now that I have the Scor-Pal! If you don't have one click on the image to the right for more information. It is a wonderful new tool. Now back to the card, this is A Wish for Peace stamped in Old Olive on Very Vanilla cardstock, sponged on the edges and I pierced the two upper corners before mounting on Old Olive. The base card is one of my favorite new "In Colors" from Stampin' Up! Baja Breeze. The background for the card is Baroque Motifs stamp set. The trees have Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds added for extra pop.
Middle card also uses Baroque Motifs in the background and Snow Swirled stamp set, Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds also added. Colors are Real Red and another new "In Color" Pacific Point.
The last for tonight uses A Wish for Peace and card stock Sahara Sand and Always Artichoke, ink is Always Artichoke. I love the new A Very Merry Christmas stamp from the Punches Three Hostess set, the Ticket Corner Punch and the Scallop Square Punch. For an added touch I used Itty Bitty Backgrounds, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds and Dimensionals.
We did 5 other cards but I think I will wait and show them later. Have a great evening.
