Creating some cards

Well, I have been busy creating my Christmas cards.  Christmas card making falls during hunting season and Thanksgiving and I am only half done with the cards I need to get done to send out for Christmas.  I will (again) ask Santa for more hours in the day this year.

Here is a card that is 2 types in one.  I made a box card and mounted it on an easel base.  The background is cut from 2 copies of the same image and cutting out parts (house, bushes, tree, etc.) and popping them out with dimensionals and adding stickles.  The box card is stamped and colored with colored pencils before cutting out the inside frame.

This card was made using my spellbinders Poinsettia and the styrofoam lid from a take out container.  I inked the flower with chalk inks before assembling it and putting it over the embossed background.

This card is done with a teabag medallion.  The paper came from a paperstck of Christmas papers that I got.  The medallion is made from tiles of my own creation.

That's all from now!  Time to get back at making the cards.  Don't want to spoil any more surprises for family or friends that may look at this blog..
