Christmas Cards Completed


Recently I posted some cards that were in process for a Christmas Stamp-A-Stack that I'm doing in November. Remember? Well, today my order came from SU!, and I finished what had been in my brain waiting for supplies.

The first card is the "before" version, and the second is the final. I didn't end up liking the ribbon that I had picked out for this card. It doesn't contrast enough with the Chocolate Chip mat, so I went another direction. Instead of a bow, I tied two smaller pieces and added a tag greeting.


The second set of cards shows the addition of stamped snowflakes from the Snow Burst set. I used a Sahara Sand Stampin' Write Marker, and I think I like how it turned out. The ribbon is from the Holiday Mini Catalog, which debuts Oct. 1. I'm debating between this ribbon and a 1" red and cream striped ribbon. Decisions!

Thoughts? Reactions? Thanks for weighing in. It's really helpful!

Okay well I popped over here before the reader grabbed you... I LOVE th cards and I think the ribbon you used is perfect - the chocolate chip adds a lot of warmth that the candy striped might not...

These are fantastic.

Ok so to answer your question it is just hit and miss. I had some money saved away and we used it. I love fairs so it was something I wanted to do. I guess I am just saying it all depends. Thanks for asking. Hwm
