More Christmas Cards!

I feel like I haven't shared anything new for too long!! It is fun to share what I'm doing...it makes me feel like I'm not "quite" as far away from my stampin' buddies as I really am!! So, here are a few Christmas cards I made with a scrap of my delicious Dashing Designer paper from Stampin' Up!. Oh, and before I forget:

Shannon, about the scallop punch on the money holder cards, Stampin' Up! does sell a scallop punch that is close to this same size, it doesn't have quite as many "scallops", I LOVE it and am paitently waiting for it...it should arrive at my house next saturday...yippy!!! If you'd that scallop punch, I'd be happy to help you order it, just let me know..it is 15.95. But, the scallop punch I used on the Money holders is by Marvy Uchida I think it was the blue one...which translates to the Super Scallop Circle punch if you click on the link it will take you to Lizzie Anne Designs, they have a bunch of the scallop punches.

Ok, so back to my cards, I just used the colors in the designer paper...which I LOVE!! Old Olive, Real Red, and Saraha Sand. All the products are Stampin' Up! exept for the scallop circle punch, it is the super Marvy Uchida and the scallop oval is the giga oval punch also by Marvy Uchida. I've had the Key Tab Punch from Stampin' Up! for a long time, and haven't found myself using it...and it fit this Merry Christmas sentiment perfect...and I love the look!! The little clips are from the current Holiday Mini and are called Mini Libray Clips I think they are so cute!! For the scallops down the side of the card, I just punched out real red circles with the 3/4" cirlce punch (from Stampin' Up!) and attached them to the side of the card. I did cut the front panel down about 1/2" so that the scallops don't "hang" over the edge of the card when it is closed. On the second and third cards, I did a bit of paper piercing..I haven't done that for a while and I sure do love it!!






Thanks for stopping by!! I hope that you are enjoying your Holiday Season...I've just discovered the GREATEST gingerbread biscuits, let's just say I love them more than I should!! I love being in Germany at this time of year!!!:) Have a great one!
