The first one uses the Snow Village stamps. I fell in love with the elegant look of the "Christmas" stamp and used it with Fresh Snow ink and white embossing powder on white cardstock. The Snow Village Ephemera package has a ton of die cuts in the package and even some gorgeous vellum pieces as well, which is what I used here with a chipboard poinsettia over the top.
Parisian Lace Doily die by Papertrey Ink, then added a vellum Ephemera piece and a chipboard piece. Really simple card to make, even though it looks more involved.
I love these layered chipboard pieces from Snow Village!
On the third card, I chose an Ephemera piece - a golden reindeer -to be the highlight of this card. He's shiny in real life. I used a vellum frame from the line over a journaling card (from one of the 12x12" papers) and stamped "Christmas" on it.
The last card was a little more involved. I began by stamping Christmas on white cardstock at an angle for the background in black. I wanted to add more items over the top, but didn't want it to be too busy looking, so I added a sheet of vellum over the stamping. It tones the look down, but you can still see the saying peeking through.
I framed out the stamping with 2 pieces of patterned paper, one on top and one on bottom. Last, I added some Ephemera pieces and a chipboard flower on top. I love to layer to create more interest!
Always feels weird making holiday cards in July, doesn't it? I suppose it's better to get a head start than to wait until December. Enjoy your weekend. We are getting new windows put into our home this coming week, so our job this weekend is to move all furniture away from windows and take down all blinds and curtains. Sounds like fun, huh. But I'll be glad when it's done. :) Thanks for swinging by. Hugs,
