CHRISTMAS CARDS!


I received a request to make a few religious Christmas cards for someone to purchase.  Here are a couple and some tags that I came up with.  Hopefully I'll be sharing a few more within the next day or two.

This first card is a pretty flat card easy to mail even though it has a few layers.
I first stamped the image, cut it out with a circle die, punched the stars at the top of the circle and added some shiny silver paper behind the stars for just a bit of glitz.


PAPERTREY INK BLOG HOP:


This second card is one of my fav's and for the PTI Blog Hop today, I thought it fit to using the traditional Christmas color of green with just a touch of red. I love the look of the old time Christmas song sheets to coordinate with a new sentiment from PTI.  Again an easy mail card with not too much bulk to it even with the added frame and sentiment shape.



So, what do you think, which do you like better?  I haven't shown them to my customer yet, but when I do I'll let you know their preference.

Oops almost forgot here are a couple of Christmas tags also.




Thanks for taking the time to look and maybe leave a comment.

Both cards are very pretty, but I like the silent night one best. And your tags are lovely.

Both cards are beautiful, but my preference would be for the music sheet card. Your tags are super sweet also!

Nancy All the projects are fabulous and each has its own charm. The first one is the "reason" for the season... and l love the palm trees ... they make me think of you!
The sheet music is beautiful and I love the shade of green you used. I can just hear the music coming off your card. Very peaceful.....
The tags are the bomb!! I LOVE that stamp set. I was playing with it myself this weekend with just stamping... having even used the dies. I also purchased their Autumn Rose ink and used on the berries! LOVE IT! It's going to be my new favorite color!
Wish we were making Christmas cards together!!!! MISS YOU!!
