Chrismas again

Here are a few items I've been working on. I think the top card is my favorite of the Christmas ones I've been making. All card stock for everything here is from Stampin' Up!. I am really trying to use up some of what I have.

The verse in the first set is from Stampendous and I have used it very little until today but
love the way it fits this card. The border punch is from Martha and I borrowed it, guess I have to get my own now don't I. Love how it finished off this card with the Organdy ribbon that I "heated" up. In the navy one I added tiny bead pearls to some of the bottom openings. I have to do this one in green and see which is my favorite. Do you have a favorite colors?

The second card uses the same border punch but I double punched the strip. I like the way it turned out but didn't know what to add to it. I decided on the ornament punch from Stampin' Up! that I spritzed with shimmer paint. The rub on is from Hambly Screen Prints.

The bottom item is going to be a Christmas gift and it is all retired Stampin' Up! designer paper. I cut our the letter with my Cricut and my new favorite cartridge Ashlyn's Alphabet. On the inside I printed off a calendar from print free calendars and added to the page. There is a pocket also inside. Hope the one that I made it for likes it.
