Mailable Christmas Cards

 Hello Friends and Happy Thursday!

A couple cute & mailable holiday cards to share with you today!
I have recently been on a 'I need some new schtuff' kick and have ordered a variety of EFs, slimline dies, etc. etc. etc. and this cute Border Christmas Bells embossing folder is by the Leane Creatif .com.

As you will see, I've used it two different ways.
First I simply embossed a scrap panel of white card stock then colored atop the embossed portion of the leaves, strings & stars ... leaving the embossed bells just white.

The sentiment panel, light string and tree were extras laying on the work table so I simply die cut a scalloped circle to create my tree skirt and a few little packages.  Gold Stickles were added to the lights as well as the edge of my border embossed panel for a touch of sparkle.

CARD #2 is even more mailable since nothing is popped up other than the embossing on the border panel.  This time I used a scrap strip of red card stock then touched it up with a white gelly roll pen.  A holiday sentiment and a few snowflakes and this card is 'ready to go'!

Isn't it fun to see how different your cards can be and still be using the one same main element!

I hope you're having some crafting fun today!

As always . . .


  1. I love that embossed border! It looks fabulous both ways -- partially colored on the first card, and white highlights on the second. Your touch ups with the white gel pen are beautifully done. Got to love those mailable cards!

  2. These are both lovely! That is a really cool embossing folder. I love how you used the white pen on the red - it really does look awesome!

  3. Both are so beautiful. And very festive.

  4. Both cards are so pretty with your different treatments of the embossed edge! Love the gentle touch of white gel on the raised areas and sweet sentiment for a perfect CAS Christmas card! It's so wonderful to see you in The Paper Players gallery, thanks for joining us this week!

  5. I love how you have used it in both, the first one has that elegant touch to it and the second has a little more rustic feel, love when you can get two totally different looks to it!

  6. Fabulous cards, Darlene! I LOVE the embossing folder you used. The white accents on the red panel really help the details stand out. Thank you for playing in my Clean and Simple challenge at The Paper Players this week!

  7. Beautiful - love the detail on that embossed border! And perfectly CAS for easy posting too. Thanks for playing along with us over at The Paper Players this week!

  8. Such a beautiful card, thanks for joining us at the Dragonfly Dreams Challenge.
