Well, I was determined my first batch of Christmas cards would be done tonight. Here they are. There is a post from about a month or two ago with the initial layout that links to the card that inspired them on splitcoast. I made 32 of them. As you can see from the picture of all of the cards, I still have two sheets of the paper I used for the main images. I ran out of ribbon though. I found some thing close at Michaels, so I might make another 16 with the new ribbon since I have all the dimensions. This gives me the freedom to make what I like for the other Christmas cards I will send. I do love these though. They are on vanilla paper with gold cardstock. The snowflakes are stampin up and embossed with a mixture of gold powder and iridescent ice. There are some plain iridescent ice snowflakes too to fill in spots. I thought these would be quick and easy until I started mass producing them. It was not bad, but a lot of steps since it was embossed twice and all the small snowflake pieces are on dimensionals. Oh well, it is still better than the cards I made last year. I mass produced cards with origami Christmas trees then stamped and spounged multiple layers of paper. I have got to find someone that still has one to take a picture. They were amazing but time consuming.
Enough of that, check out these!!! Here is the group shot.
Here is another shot with the color altered some.
Here is a closer look and a shot of the Peace on Earth stamp inside.
Here is a picture of Delilah because she was standing there watching me take picture of the cards.
Hope you have a great day.
