Quickie Cards...


Here are a couple quick & easy Christmas cards I made today!
The card on the left is simply matted designer paper with an image from SU Lovely As A Tree stamped & embossed in the left corner and a ribbon tied on the right side. Very easy peasy!!
The card on the right is relatively easy with the exception of coloring the image. Of course you can always stamp an image like this in "sepia" to give it that vintage look and not have to do coloring. The base card is a duplex green/ivory cardstock which I have bordered using a silver Pilot marker. The sentiment is stamped in silver, and the snowflakes are stamped with Versamark and embossed with Ranger silver embossing powder. Thanks for stopping by!!

  6. Cute cards! I love it when stampers use 'generic' stamps for xmas. Who would have thought the "lovely as a tree" set could be used for Xmas. I also love the dickens card. I just adore that image...but you know I love anything vintage!

  8. These are lovely. I especially like the elegant simplicity of the "Lovely as a Tree" image stamped of DP and finished off with that gorgeous ribbon.
