November Christmas Cards

Hello!  I finished my 2013 Christmas Cards for the year!  Yeah!  Now I get to take a month off before the challenge starts up again in January 2014.  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 at the last minute in December.  I make four cards a month so that I'll have about fifty at the end of the year.  Today is the deadline for getting the November cards done and posted, and I made it in the nick of time!

For my cards this month, I used all little sweet dollar images from Studio G.  I kept all my designs Clean and Simple as November is a very busy month for me due to my retail job.

For my first card, I kept it really Clean and Simple and tried to add some impact with some sparkle.  The image was stamped in the lower left corner of a textured white paper.  I colored it with Copics and put Flower Soft on the base for the image to simulate snow and then added green adhesive crystals for ornaments and a clear crystal snowflake for a tree topper.  It's a little hard to see in the photograph, but I also stamped snowflakes with Versamark on the rest of the white space, and sprinkled it with a clear glitter.  It's quite pretty in real life.

 For my second card, I used this sweet bird image.  I stamped him three times and popped him up on dimensionals.  I put Liquid Applique on his Santa hat.  All the papers are very old and from my scrap heap.
 For my next card, I used some funky Christmas paper from my stash and a sketch from Verve (VLVMAR2013).
 I put Liquid Applique on the birds hat and pink Stickles on the present.  I also stamped the present twice and popped it up on dimensionals.
 My last card uses a sketch from MFT (MFTGUESTDTO413).  I used Flower Soft again for the snow,  glitter ribbon, adhesive crystals and a felt snowflake.  I colored the tree on the star in with a silver glitter pen.

Have a great day! Amy
