A few more Christmas cards

Had a busy weekend but still managed to get a few more cards done... still short a few for family...


Another one using a Couture Creations die and a sentiment from Kaisercraft.  I used this design to make a set of cards that I sent out to some of my friends.


 This one is using just some PP and gems.  Rubbed some white ink around the edges to give a blackboard look


 PP and a white embossed sentiment.  The tree is die cut from some holographic card that came with some fishing lures that Hubby bought on Sunday.


This one used some pencils and a Prisma colourless pencil blender.  I used a technique I saw Jill Foster do... added some browns to the lower leaves to give the flower depth.  The banner is a la Catherine Pooler - used to cover up a mistake!

Just finished up 7 "Kiwi" card for a commission.   I'll share these later this week.

Thanks for visiting.

Your family should be pleased to have these in their mailboxes because they are all delightful! It always seems like no matter how many stinkin Christmas cards I make, I always come up short!
