More Cards, More Cards.......

If you saw my previous post you will recognize the paper on this card.  My sister, also a cardmaker, cut out the word JOY to use the negative.  I kept the letters figuring I could make use of them.  I had this sort of fuzzy ribbon from Michael's that I'd been wanting to use, so this is what I came up with.  The base card is the same generic white that I've used on quite a few of my cards (simply because I have so much of it).  The mat paper is open stock from JoAnns, and the dp is the BasicGrey I used on one of the boxes.  The strip at the bottom is the reverse side of the tree paper.  I edged the letters with a Sakura glitter pen.

As you can see,this next card uses the same fuzzy ribbon.  I used PTI paper for the mat run through the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.  The dots are inked with ColorBox gold.  The poinsettia image is embossed with a Sizzix folder, and colored with Lumin Arte Twinkling H2O's.  I used an EK Success scalloped scallop punch for the borders.

I welcome and appreciate your comments.  Hope you have all your holiday prep done.  I certainly don't, but I'm somewhat of a last minuter myself.  Really have to get over that some day.

Thanks for visiting!

Keep your creative genius flowing..........
