Better Late Than Never?

Well, here it is January 5th and I am just now posting my last two Christmas cards, but like the title of this post says- better late than never, right? I hope that all of you had a wonderful Christmas and that the new year will bring you much happiness!

Here is the second of my Christmas cards. I CASE'd this one from Heidi Baks. I saw a similar card on her blog and LOVED it so I had to make my own version. I was really happy with the way they turned out! What do you think of this one?

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Welcome Christmas, Come to Bethlehem (sentiment)
Paper: Soft Suede CS, Cherry Cobbler CS, Whisper White CS, Deck the Halls DSP
Ink: Soft Suede, Marina Mist
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Cherry Cobbler seam binding
Techniques: Masking, Sponging

Here is the third card design that I sent out this year. It is a CASE of a card made by Ilina Crouse. I added the glitter window technique to make the snowflake extra sparkly. These are definitely CAS (Clean and Simple) cards which means that the design is very clean and there is a lot of white remaining on the card. The first picture shows a close up and the second is the entire card front. Even though I don't often do CAS cards, I really like this one and they went together very quickly and easily. This card is done in Concord Crush, but I also did them in Cherry Cobbler and Not Quite Navy and they were all very pretty. I loved all the shimmer on this card. I used the shimmer spray on the card front to give the whole card a little sparkle!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Four the Holidays
Paper: Concord Crush CS, Whisper White CS
Ink: Concord Crush
Accessories: Snowflake punch, Rhinestones, Dazzling Diamonds, packing tape (non-SU), shimmer spray
Techniques: Glitter Window
Sorry that I didn't get these posted before Christmas, but better late than never- right? right?

Squeal - you mentioned me!! :) I had to look hard at the glitter window to figure it out. So I'm guessing the you punched the snowflake out of the white top layer and the glitter is behind it?


Oh Marla! The window silhouette card is just stunning. I LOVE it. TFS
