Christmas cards

This year as a change, I did a few cards that were stamped instead of using the Cricut. The first one is done using a stamp that was embossed with black and then the cardinal was colored with a red and yellow marker. Adding a little dimension by using a a gel on the cardinal. Finishing the card by adding red paper cut 1/8" to the white card stock and added to the bought set of blank cards. I did mount two stamps on the clear block to also get the wording done at the same time. The two cards below were from the same stamp but the one in silver was made at Achievers with silver embossing powder and just a portion of the stamp used on white card stock mounted on a red card.

Another stamp bought at Achievers is the "Noel" and done like the sample of the free card showcase. Added green and white Stickles to the details of the stamp. I stamped another :"O", cut it out and added it with a pop dot. The red and green card stock was run through the Cuttlebug and glued on glitter card stock.

A simple tree and "JOY" , then embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and the corners were cut with a corner punch. The red are brads added to the corners and tree.
