September Christmas Cards

Hello! Today I have 5 Christmas Cards to show you for the month of September. As most of you already know, I make 5 Christmas Cards a month so that I will have 60 Cards by the end of the year and I don't have to make them all during the busy Christmas Season.

For my first card, I used a Digital Image by 'Fred, She Said'. The paper is Cosmo Cricket 'Mitten Weather', and the Sketch is from Mojo Monday. I used Stickles and Flower Soft for the Snow, and Liquid Applique on the girls clothing. The main image panel is mounted up on dimensionals.

For my next card, I used an old Stampin Up! image called "Baby Jesus is Born". This is one of my favorite SU! sets. I just love the simplicity of it. The paper is Basic Grey 'Jovial Paper Pad' and the sketch is SC297 from SCS. The sentiment is a plastic thing-a-ma-jig that came in a package of decorative Xmas Buttons from JoAnn's. The main image panel and the polka dotted panel are both mounted up on dimensionals.

Here I used the same stamp set and paper again but with a different sketch from SCS (SC298). I mounted the sentiment and the sheep up on dimensionals.

Here is a close up so you can see the dimension.

The sweet angel Xmas Card below is a digital image from 'Cute Daisy May'. The sketch is from MMSC69. Paper is Cosmo Cricket 'Mitten Weather'.

And finally, for my last card, I used a Crafty Secrets Stamp Set called 'Snow Bunnies'. The paper is Basic Grey 'Eskimo Kisses'. I used both Flower Soft and Stickles for the snow, and Liquid Applique on the Bunnie's ears. The hearts are adhesive gels from Cloud 9.

Well its almost October now, have any of you started your Christmas Cards yet? Hurry up, its getting late!
Have a great day! Amy
