More Christmas Cards - 12/22/08

Wonderful and beautiful Christmas cards are continuing to arrive in our mailbox, and I want to share them with you in small bunches rather than all at once when it’s a chore. At Christmas time, the last thing we stampers want to do is create cards that take more than ten minutes each to make, as none of us has that kind of time (unless you only have to make one card!). But when we can make ones that are far superiour to a store bought card, and we can put our own personal touches and unique embellishmetnts on them in less time than it takes to drive to the mall, fight the crowds and select a box, I think that’s what we all want. Below are cards that accomplish all of that.

This first card is from Ce-Ann McNamara and I love that its simple, but has lots of sparkle.

The next is from Phyllis Nelson and I love the sparkle she added to all the trees’ ornaments, in addition to the border she made using sparkle paper for that extra pizzaz.

Lady Mary Cromak from England sent in another great card using a tag as a focal point, then added glitter for sparkle. It’s also interesting because she used strips of coordinating paper with decorative edges to add interest. (Note that I add her very special title. That’s because I expect her to address me as The Queen.)

The next card was sent to me by Shari Secreto and, as usual, she’s done a beautiful job. Everything she does is extraordinary. It’s hard to see on the photo image, but the cardstock and papers she used have a beautiful sheen to them, then within her Nestibility frame she’s placed the most exquisite reflective paper. Finally on the snowman that she so expertly colored, she added pink rhinestones to his buttons.

This last card is from my very favorite Stampin’ Up rep, Danelle Henry. Actually, it’s really not a Christmas card, but I got it at Christmas time, so it’s getting added to the site! Danelle seldom embosses, but all of her cards are cute and/or pretty because she adds things like pearls, brads and ribbons to give her cards depth and interest. -And you all know how I am. Anything that adds glitz and sparkle, I’m there!

And, finally this last photo is not of a card but of The King (my hubby) and our Princess, Ceaytie. She’s the only thing decorated for Christmas this year!
