Three Holiday Cards

Quickly sharing three holiday cards I made last week. I'm actually pretty much over making cards for Christmas. Ready to move on to a new year and regular types of cards! Yes!

Anyway, first up:



I used a suuuuper fine embossing powder on this card, and it left a bit of a sheen on my white card stock. Yes, my color isn't off, the front of the card is a bit blueish. I ended up rubbing some on with my fingers to make the entire card front the same. I love the powder but I think I'm going to have to keep it to stuff I'll die cut, because I don't like that it stays on my card stock (even though I rubbed my embossing buddy over it a ton!).

Supplies:
Warm Wishes stamp - Neat & Tangled 
Arctic Embossing Powder - Sparkle N Sprinkle
Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch
Wondrous Wreath stamp set - Stampin' Up!
Glitter card stock 

Next, this card was inspired by one I'd pinned awhile back, found here:


Supplies:

Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits Dies - Stampin' Up!
Bling Stars
American Crafts Jolly 6x6 paper pad

Finally, this one, which took me way longer than I'd anticipated. I stamped the outline of the leaves and berries with black ink, then used clear embossing powder over them before I colored them in. But, so much shimmer!

 

Supplies:
holly4Christmas stamp set - The Stamps of Life
Cheerful Christmas Greetings stamp set - My Favorite Things
Colorbox black pigment ink
Recollections clear embossing powder

Wink of Stella red and green brush pens

There you have it! I think that I have only one more to make, and then I can finally move on!
