Annual Christmas card

Good morning everyone.  Today I would like to share the cards my Sister in Law and I made for our annual Christmas card night. A lot of the products used come from the Holiday catalog which comes out on Sept 1st. Crafty Lou created a card using the Christmas Quilt bundle and coordinating DSP while I created my card using the Hang Your Stocking stamp set with coordinating dies, the Year of Cheer DSP, and a sentiment from the Brightly Lit Christmas stamp set. We both used a nest of thread on our cards and Crafty Lou added some bling. Take a look at the projects we created and let us know what you think.


Supplies:
.

Additional supplies:Red sewing thread, Gold sewing thread, Jewel brad, ATG, MISTI, Red ink.


We hope you have enjoyed our projects and will check back soon for more inspiration. Look below for a closer look at each card.

Hello and welcome everyone.  I have a new card project I'd like to share with you that I created after watching a YouTube video by Cynthia Maynard(I'll try to link the video below).  Mine may not have come out as well but I'm very happy with the results.  Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think and then head on over to Cynthia Maynard's channel and check out her video.

    4. On scrap paper, stamp the hot air balloons and then die-cut with coordinating thinlits. Pop the stamped images up with foam tape and adhere to the background piece.

    5. Cut a sentiment strip from Whisper White card stock, sponge the edges and stamp sentiment and then adhere to a slightly larger piece of card stock that matches the card base. Adhere directly to the bottom of the background piece.
