Christmas Cards 2013

Hello All,

Today, I have this year's Christmas cards to show, well the prototype cards.  So happy to have them finished, addressed and ready to mail.  They were actually mailed over the weekend.

I made 3 cards this year.  They are all similar layout, but different images and colors so I was able to use cardstock I had on hand.  The images are pre-colored, since I was making so many - 82 total.

The first used an image and verse from Doodle Pantry - Blessed ChristmasThe cardstock is PTI Blueberry Sky and Enchanted Evening.  The embossed panel is the image is impression plate called scallops and circles from Taylored Expressions.  I could not find it in their store anymore.  I actually used a different embossing folder for the cards I sent - Goosebumpz "Chain", which looked like burlap fabric to me.  I made 34 of this version.
Card 2 used an image from Deedee Designs - Christmas Cardinal.  The cardstock is PTI Pure Poppy.  The embossing folder shown is Cuttlebug twigs.  The actual folder I used for the cards I sent was Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes.  The embossed panel looked more like the side of a barn.  I made 24 of this type.
Card 3 used an image from Clear Dollar Stamps called Paper Christmas Trees.  CDS went out of business a couple months ago.  The embossing folder is Cuttlebug Mistletoe. Love this folder.  Cardstock is PTI Ripe Avocado.  I made 24 of this one too.

Thanks for stopping by...

Hope you all have a wonderfully blessed Christmas!
