May Christmas Cards

Hello!  Today I have my May Christmas Cards to show you.  As most of you already know, I play the Christmas Card Challenge on Splitcoaststampers where we make Christmas Cards all year long so that were not stressed out making cards during the busy holiday season.  I make four Christmas Cards a month so that I'll have about fifty at the end of the year.

Because May is a busy month for me due to the Garden Season, I decided to use the same MFT image ('Thanks Snow Much') on all four cards, and I also cased all four cards from the divas.

My first card uses a layout from Dawn Easton.  (Sorry, I couldn't find a link to the original card.)   I changed the image, papers, and sentiment.  My sewing machine does not like to stitch on paper, so it is what it is, but I really don't mind messy sewing on cards, some designers to that on purpose! LOL!

 My second card is also cased, but I have no idea from whom.  The original artist didn't use a watermark and there were no clues in the title of the picture.  I kept the same layout, but changed the papers.
 The next two cards were cased from Jodi Collins.   HERE is the first card.  I changed only the designer papers.
 I put crystal effects and glitter on the scarf, then sprayed the whole image with a shimmer spray.
 And HERE is the second card I cased.  Again, I only changed the designer paper, but added a felt snowflake instead of a button.  I also stamped the image twice; the first time on an ivory designer paper, and the second onto white card stock.  Then I cut only the body of the snowman out and pasted it onto the designer paper.  The snowman looks really white this way!
I sprayed him with shimmer mist too.  Here's another close up for you!
Have a great day! Amy
