Gifts of Christmas 2

I have again used the Gifts of Christmas stamp set and this time chose the dove image. The image was embossed in gold and die cut with Nestabilities. Prior to removing the die I sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink. I really like the way this Nestabilities set looks like an open book, in this case it would be the Bible.
I added a little bling with clear rhinestones in the center of the three flowers.
I really love the way this card turned out, and it was so simple to make.

Gifts of Christmas

I used the flower stamp from the Gifts of Christmas set and colored it with Stampin' Write Markers in Real Red and Handsome Hunter. The image and mat was die cut with Nestabilities and prior to removing the die I sponged in some Handsome Hunter to give the appearance of another mat. The background paper was found in my large stash of miscellaneous supplies. A whole 12 x 12 sheet of this paper really makes your eyes wonky when looking at it, but a small piece really went well with this image and managed to complete the look I wanted. I appreciate you stopping in today.

Berry Christmas

Don't you just love this Stampin' Up flocked designer paper from the Christmas Cocoa Specialty pack? It give your cards such a luxurious look.
On this card I paired the paper with several stamps from the Berry Christmas set to create, what I think, is a beautiful combination of Real Red and Whisper White. Thanks for stopping by to visit.
