Pine Branch Christmas 2016

This is a 7" x 5" top folding landscape card.  The card base is Neenah 110# Solar White.  I used some papers I had in my stash, but I have linked below some great ones!  The plaid layer is 7" x 5" and the pine layer is 6 3/4" x 4 3/4".

The large cut out pine branches are from the Flower Market Cricut cartridge and coated with Spectrum Noir Sparkle clear overlay.

This ornament cut out is randomly stamped with the Perfectly Pine stamp and embossed with green embossing powder then coated with Glossy Accents.  The ornament is 2 3/4" tall.

The vellum is cut with the second largest die
in the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Banner
die set.  Using the Very Merry stamp set I embossed with the Merry Christmas sentiment with red embossing powder.   I added enamel dots with the Classic Cherry Enamel Accents by Ranger.

Ho Ho Ho Christmas Card & Wine Tag

Always a favorite of mine...Art Impressions!  This is the Reindeer Games stamp set.  And I used the HO HO HO stencil from Simon Says Stamp to give the front of this card a big wow factor!

This is a 5" x 7" side folding card.
Card base: Neenah 110# solar white 10" x 7", scored in the middle at 5".
Green Plaid layer: 5" x 7"
Red layer: 4 1/2" x 6 1/2"

I used the HO HO HO stencil (SSS) with texture paste tinted with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.  After the texture paste completely dried I went over it with my Spectrum Noir clear sparkle overlay.  I adhered the red layer flat to the green layer then wrapped it 3 times with thick red/white baker's twine and just tied it off in a knot.  I then used craft foam to pop the whole panel up off the card base.

The old lady from the stamp set is colored with Copic Markers and she is popped up as well.  Her glasses are finished off with a little Glossy Accents.

For the inside I used the other two images from the stamp set.  I also colored these with Copic Markers.  And the greeting is from a retired set I had, but I will link some really great Christmas sentiment sets.

The presents are Copic colored.  The stamp set I used was a Close To My Heart set from last year's release.  I have linked below a really cute set with a stack of presents.
