I know it has been a while since I posted. This will probably be the last of my Christmas in July. That doesn't mean that I won't be posting more Christmas cards. I have been very busy making lots of cards and I want to share them with you.
I made this last night for a client who wanted something for her older son who is into football...The Steelers, of course.
This one is also one that I sold to the same person for her granddaughter's 10th birthday.
This is such a great stamp set. I used paper piecing on this card. I stamped the entire image onto white card stock. Then I stamped the boxers onto designer paper, cut them out and glued them over the original image. The inside says depends. Don't you just love it? It really makes a great card for a man. I gave it to a friend whose birthday is today.
This card I made for my husband who is away. I stamped the image and colored it. I cut it out and mounted it on 2 pieces of laminate samples. I put the 2 ribbons on the top to cover the holes in the samples. I used Stazon ink to stamp the brush around the stump.
This card was made for a friend who I had lunch with today, for her birthday. Lots of layers. All of the butterflies were die cut from designer paper. The green background was dry embossed on Core'dinations card stock and then I sanded it to get the lighter core. The flowers are punched and then covered with torn, light blue vellum.
Next, I have some Christmas cards to show...These are easy for me to remake for special orders...
Simple but effective. It is colored and I added gold and glitter pen.
I really like this Three Wise Men card. I made it on my Cricut and distressed it to make it look like sand in the background.
This is one of my favorite Santas. I stamped it on white and colored with Copics. I then cut it out and mounted on the ho ho ho designer paper. I have done him a few times with different backgrounds and it always looks great.
Remember, a lot of these cards are for sale or by special order. If you are interested in a special order (any number of cards), please order early! I get pretty busy towards December and I may not get the time to do them if it is too late.
As usual, I ask that you please leave a comment. I really would like to know what you think of my cards!
