Two additional Xmas Cards for my friends and Family 2012


Hi Everyone,
Just adding more Xmas cards that I made to mail out this year.  I started out making the Xmas card for everyone that I have posted below with the Sleigh but I needed to make 26 and I got tired of piecing the sleigh together after card number 7!  So I decided to make another card that would not be so involved for the rest of them.

I took white bazzil cardstock and embossed it with a snowflake design but I used my brayer and rolled beige and green chalk ink on the debossed side of the embossing folder so that when it embossed the design, the snowflakes would remain white.  I used a chipboard frame on both cards and placed a Collections Elements scrolled label with a small piece of cheesecloth behind it on top of the chipboard label.  I stamped the word Joy on the label.  The snowflakes were cut using my Cricut personal die cutter and a Penny Duncan free svg cut file.  I cut two different styles of snowflakes out of thin chipboard, painted them with white acrylic paint and then painted glue over the top and added fine white glitter to them and then touched white paint to the edges and added a rhinestone in the middle.

To finish them off, I added a white satin bow and some rick rack trim across the bottom.
