Christmas Merriment

Here are a few Christmas Cards I made that I thought I would share with those of you who are not interested in Christmas Decorations.
The Reindeer Card was made using the Paper Craft Planet Sketch. The sweet images were sent to me as a birthday gift from a Splitcoaststampers member, so unfortunately I have no idea what company they are from. I used the retired Stampin Up! set 'Merry, Merry' for the sentiment, its stamped in Craft 'Close to Cocoa' ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. The designer paper is all pre-glitter and is from 'My Minds Eye'. The images are mounted up on dimensionals. Ribbon and brads were added for embellishment.
The Snowman card was made for the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I used a retired Sizzix die for the snowman, the small snowflake die by Cuttlebug, and the sentiment is also from the 'Merry, Merry' set. Cardstock colors are Stampin Up! 'Ballet Blue', 'Yo Yo Yellow', 'Tempting Turquoise', and 'Real Red'.
The nativity card was made for the Shine Challenge on Paper Craft Planet where we had to make a card that expresses what God's Love means to us. Well, this card says exactly what God's Love means to me: the gift of His Son. I used the 'Baby Jesus is Born' set from Stampin Up!. The Cardstock Colors are 'Naturals Ivory', 'Brocade Blue', 'Bordering Blue', and 'Riding Hood Red.' I stamped the retired 'Crosshatch' for the background. Hemp was added for embellishment. This set is now on the retired list, you only have till January 18th to order it before it is gone forever!
Happy Stamping! Amy
