Merry Christmas y’all! I don’t know about you but, our December was jam packed this year! I actually didn’t get around to making cards until the days leading up to Christmas and on Christmas. So, my apologies for those receiving cards late this year. It’s the thought that counts though, right? I hope these give you some idea for your cards in the future!

Pink Ornament Tree Card

  • hand stamped tree colored green with pink ornaments and gold star. framed with gold.
  • Straight on view of hand stamped tree colored green with pink ornaments and gold star. framed with gold.
  • side view hand stamped tree colored green with pink ornaments and gold star. framed with gold.

For this card I broke out a piece of alcohol ink artwork I had done and stamped it and fussy cut the ornaments! I hand stamped the tree in brown and detail brushed ink on with green for the leaves. I handmade a star from foil paper because I couldn’t find my star dies. Oops. TO finish things off, I used a rectangle frame from gold paper.

Pink Doe Christmas Card

  • Alternating stripes of gold foiled embossed strips and pink alcohol ink swirled stripes. Framed with a white rectangle and topped with a brown outlined doe on white paper.
  • Side angle of Alternating stripes of gold foiled embossed strips and pink alcohol ink swirled stripes. Framed with a white rectangle and topped with a brown outlined doe on white paper.

I used the same pink alcohol ink artwork from the previous card and cut strips from it. I used gold foil paper and used a embossing rectangular die cut of various Christmas like shapes. I alternated the pink and gold. I put a white rectangular frame on the edges of those. I added 2 layers of rectangles under the doe to raise it up off the card and placed it on top of everything in the center. I hand stamped the doe in brown and fussy cut it out.

  • Happy Holidays hand stamped on Left center in gold shimmer ink. The right corner has gold foiled embossed stripes with a blue alcohol ink swirl stripe in between. A hands tamped blue person holding presents in on top of that.

I hand stamped Happy Holidays in a gold shimmer pigment ink. I embossed snowflake like stripes in foil and adhered them to the right of the card and put a blue alcohol strip piece in the middle. To tie things together, I stamped in blue a person holding presents and fussy cut it out. Then, I adhered it on top of the stripes.

Shiny Embossed Stocking

  • Red and grayish blue foil paper stripes of embossed shapes adhered to make paper. Then die cut in a stocking shape.
  • Side view of Red and grayish blue foil paper stripes of embossed shapes adhered to make paper. Then die cut in a stocking shape.

I die cut several strips of embossed holiday like shapes in red and grayish blue stripes. Then, I glued all of the same color lined up together to make the appearance of one piece of paper. Then, I die cut them with a stocking die cut and adhered it to the middle of the card.

Winter Wonderland Card

I used a Hello Bluebird die cut to make this scene. I colored the trees with green and brown colored pencils and then added white acrylic paint on top of the trees. I made a blue alcohol swirl artwork piece and die cut the pond. I use a sky scrap that I made for a space themed card earlier in the year with distress oxide ink.

Oh Holy Night Card

Stamped this card with Enchanted Gold Pigment Ink and black ink. I stamped the star in gray and put color pop glitter on it and spread it around with a toothpick. I adhered these to a green card base. Fun fact, I made over 70 of these this year! 60 were without the green card base and were put in boxes for Operation Christmas Child! It was such a fun thing to do.
