Festive Trio

Thanks for all the nice comments on my Holy Triptych cards I posted yesterday. I actually got phone calls from several of my family members this year saying how much they loved my card, so that made me feel good after spending so much time on them. Like I said in yesterdays post, I don't like to make too many of any one card just because it starts to get boring...so here's a grouping of some other cards I made for some of my friends this year.I originally designed these cards for a Christmas in July class I held. I really like the way the joy snowman card and the reindeer tag card turned out, but to be honest, wasn't too crazy about the tree card. I should have embossed the greeting in white like I did on the other two but I just used White Craft ink and it just didn't pop like the other two...plus the angle I took this photo didn't help matters! hehehe


What I like about the reindeer card is that it has a floating tag. To do this you just need to sandwich a piece of fishing line in between the tags and then again in between the two layers. Just remember when you sign your card not to sign it where it can be seen from the outside. Don't ask me how I know NOT to do this! hehehe

Here's a close up look at the snowman card.

Stamps: Festive Favorites, All Through the Year (snowflake) Big Deal Alphabet, Flannel Plaid back ground
Card Stock: Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate & Whisper White
Ink: Black Stazon, Purely Pomegranate & White Craft
Accessories: Wild Wasabi Double Stitched ribbon, Tag & Circle punches.

I'm looking forward to later on this afternoon...we are heading to Detroit to see Ozzy Osbourne along with Rob Zombie in concert tonight! I have never seen either one of them before, and I've always wanted to see Ozzy. Lately he seems only to tour with Ozz Fest, and most of those bands are too hard core for my taste, so I didn't want to have to endure all the other bands just to see Ozzy. Hopefully he puts on a good show and remembers the words to his songs!

Isnt it funny how we get side tracked you think up something and it just drags you away and you loose track of time.
