Two More 2010 Christmas Cards

Here is another Christmas card that I made. The image for this card is from Just Rite Stamps. It's difficult to see in the picture, but I stamped the background paper with snowflakes and embossed with VersaMark and clear embossing powder mixed with glitter. It has a subtle shimmer that turned out really nice. I touched the snow and branches with glue and sprinkled some glitter on the image as well.

Supplies: Card size is 5" x 5"

Paper - Neena Classic Crest Solar White for image, White Daisy and New England Ivy Cardstock (CTMH)
Stamp Sets - Backyard Birds (Just Rite Stamps), Snow Flurries D1384 (CTMH)
Inks - Memento Tuxedo Black, Versa Mark Watermark, Copic markers, white gel pen
Embellishments - Clear detail embossing powder mixed with Prisma Glitter (CTMH), black metal bookplate (unknown), Rub-on letters (CTMH), Red satin ribbon (Offray), Prisma Glitter & glue (CTMH)
Other - Spellbinders scallop circle, Bow-Easy

This next card is one that I made for my youngest daughter who lives on Vancouver Island. Earlier this month they were getting a wicked snow storm which is unusual for the island, and she actually had more snow than we had in Eastern Ontario. I thought a snowy card was called for. I was inspired by a card created by the talented Tosha Leyendekker. I love the simplicity of white cards. I scored some horizontal lines with a dry embossing stylus, masked the area for heat embossing with post-it notes, stamped with versamark and heat embossed with silver. The sentiment is a glitter rubon.

Supplies - All CTMH except where noted - Card Size - 5" x 7"

Paper - White Daisy, Sky cardstock
Stamp Sets - Snow Flurries D1384
Inks - Versa Mark, Silver Embossing Powder
Embellishments - 5/8" Light Blue Satin ribbon (Offray), Silver Shimmer brad, Silver bitty brads, Glitter Rub-ons - Winter Cheer
