Merry Christmas

Here's a couple cards I made yesterday. Yup, they're going towards next year's stash.

I computer generated the Christmas story from the gospel of Luke onto parchment paper to create this card. I then tore a strip of the paper and added it to my card.

The tiny stamps are from Queens Dresser Drawers. Although they may look strategically placed, they are actually there to hide a big boo-boo.

But I liked the way it looked so this is a keeper.

This Christmas Story stamp and little Christmas postage stamps are from
Artistic Outpost. Love the vintage feel to it. I also added a stitched border (Inkadinkado) and the definition stamp (Hero Arts) to the background. The buttons are from Rhonna Farrer.

I stamped the main image on parchment paper with a dye ink.

This is my attempt at using some of my Crafty Individual images to make a Christmas card.

I used a Christmas quote by Artistic Outpost against some lovely Daisyd's papers.

I started this card by embossing the package and bow with my Cuttlebug. I then swiped some gold Brilliance ink over the embossed part. I added another one of these tiny stamped images from Queens Dresser Drawers to the middle of the package. The gold embossed Joy at the bottom is from Art Impressions.

Another vintage image from Artistic Outpost -- children playing with the nativity scene.

The December 25 postage stamp is from Stampington.

Merry Christmas to All! May your Christmas be blessed and your houses filled with joy and peace.

I love the embossed package and bow card so much! It is very elegant. You are smart to be ready for next year; just don't be like me and put your cards in a "safe" place, then forget where they are!
