Finally Finished

I had a work friend of my husband ask me if I would make her Christmas cards this year. I was flattered. I showed her pictures of all the Christmas cards I have made to date and she chose 2 that she liked. They are actually ones I made for a blog candy entry on Gabby's blog http://confessionsofastamper.blogspot.com/ last year. Gabby you may remember these. she wanted 15 of each design. So needless to say I have been busy on these for a while now.

I used the same sketch and color scheme for both cards. just changed up the cardstock, DP and images.

The first lot of cards used Chocolate chip Cardstock and Ink. The SU sets are Big Celebrations and Holiday sampler. I colored the image in with pencils. My scallop circle and other circle punches got a lot of use. There is a button brad on the word Joy.

For the second lot of cards I used Close to Cocoa cardstock and ink. The SU sets are Cold Play and All Through the Year. I cut the hat out and mounted it on a dimensional and punched 2 small holes either side of the image to thread the snowman's ribbon scarf through. This time I ran the DP through my Cuttlebug.

Once they were all finished I made a simple bag for them using a brown lunch sack and SU sets Snow Swirled and Riveting. I finished them last week and hubby took them into work for her. She was over the moon.

Thanks for looking
