Ribbon and Twine Make it Monday #302

Christmas cards are the absolute favorite of mine to make! We have a blanket of snow and so it's beginning to feel alot like Christmas. The snow won't stay but for now it does look like Christmas. Today I made a card with PTI Believe and background basics Woodgrain stamps. I wrapped the tree and snow globe base with silver twine and added a wrapped ribbon. I embossed the back trees with silver pearl and the front one with white to make it stand out a bit more. I used opal liquid pearl for the snow in the globe and SU embossing folder for the snow on the background paper. I'm entering this in the challenge at PTInk. All details can be checked HERE

Background is done with SU marbled stamp and Azturite glitter by Martha S. House die by SU (2016) I embossed the trees with brown and red embossing powder and then stamped the marble over top.

Challenge CFC #181

My card this week is for the challenge at Casual Fridays
  I have made a sympathy card with the kraft and white. I stamped an old Unity stamp (poppy) on the kraft background and used my embossing pen to fill it in although it looks grey on the photo. Then I embossed the velum with SU embossing folder and laid it over top. I embossed a white stamp again on white and colored it with a kraft pen then staggered them and adhered it with dimensional tape to give a 3D appearance.

Z fold card for Make it Monday

Second card I'm posting this week and this one is for the Make it Monday #295 challenge. It's  a z-fold card and all the info can be found HERE I used the Up and Away and Hello stamp sets by PTI and an old set from SU Through the trees. I gold embossed the balloons, sentiment and trees. The Zfold gave the balloons an appearance of lifting. I like it!

I used the CF Pretty Posies set. This set is so versatile! I also used a SSStamp die and SU sets Artistically Awesome and Simply Said. I glossed up the dragon fly and flower centers with glossy accents and added some Nuvo drops to the polka dots for a bit of dimension.
