Starting on the Christmas Cards

I've been wanting to get started on making Christmas cards, but I ran out of plain greens, reds and blues!!! Last week I got a package in the mail -- which included shades of green papers. That was sweet! :)

I borrowed some Christmas Stamp Up! stamps from a friend, and set to work....

I embossed the stamped image, and added some bling to make it stand out more. Used my favourite fiskar fancy edge scissors -- the scallop -- to create a border. The icicle border I used on the bottom of my card has been in my stash forever. I just couldn't make myself use it...until now. I just love that border punch!!!  Finally I added some ribbon from my stash and some light green pearls in the corners. There's lots of layering and I love it! :)

One down...so many more to go. But at least now I know what works... TFL. :)
