One last Christmas Card for 2014

This is my last card for the Christmas season. I used my Sizzix pop-up card dies once again. I had this Christmas paper from Doodlebug's Home for the Holidays collection. I had a pop-up poinsettia so I couldn't resisit. The Candy Cane is from the Simply Charmed Cricut Cartridge, and the scalloped cirlce is from Winter Woodlands. 

This pop up has a poinsettia die cut that I also purchased. I outlined the poinsettia with a gold pen to give it more dimension,

My favorite Christmas Card of the Season

This was probably one of my favorite cards from this season. It s a cute ornament card with a popup inside. I had one sheet left of the blue paper from Bo Bunny. You cant tell from this picture, but the paper is kind of iridescent, which makes this card a little more elegant. The holly paper is from Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses line. I used kraft colored cardstock to mat the card, 2 layers of pink card stock punched with a Martha Stewart paper punch. 
The ornament and holly berry are from Joys of the Season. I cut the ornament from cream colored cardstock and stamped it with snowflake stamps from Recollections. Inside I used another one of my Sizzix pop up dies for the tree,

Merry Christmas! Yes, it's another Noel Card. I really went for simple cards this year because I had no time at all to make them! My dad got very sick and had to have heart surgery, so I spend most of this month in the hospital. 
Once again I went to my 5 year old DCWV Christmas stack for this snowflake paper. It was the inspiration for this design. I used Plantin Schoolbook for this font and welded the letters together. I cut the snowflake from Winter Woodlands. I used Best Creation Glitter Gold paper for the shadow. I love that paper because the glitter does not shed at all.

Pop Up Noel Card

This year for Christmas I bought the Sizzix pop-up card dies. Sizzix had a clearance sale a while back because these dies are being discontinued, and I couldn't resist. 
This is the pop up inside the card, isn't it cute? I used Christmas paper from Imaginisce as the base of my card. I bought a whole pack of it at the Scrapbook Expo, I just love the little characters on the paper that are on the front side of the card. The red paper inside is from my stash. I used a Martha Stewart edge punch on the cream paper. 
I cut out this cute reindeer from the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge. The red paper on the front of the card is from Chatterbox, and the ribbon is from Michaels.

Merry Christmas Tree Card

Oh boy it's almost Christmas!  I've go a very old  DCWV paper stack that I'm trying to use up. When I say old, I mean I've had it for at least 5 years. I call it the never ending stack because I have made cards from it for at least 5 years and I still have the stack. I went for the non-traditional colored paper for this card, pink,purple, grey and black. 

I cut the trees from Joys of the Season and the layer underneath from Songbird. I have the Merry Christmas from Hero Arts.
