Card Day with Bree!

I can't believe it's time for another card day.
Where has this month gone?
Im so behind on Christmas cards this year... I better get a move on..
( i think I said that last month too)
Did you know that Yesterday (Dec. 11) was your last day to ship a parcel within Canada,
to make sure it gets there in time?
Dec . 17th is your last day within your province.
I've heard you have until Dec 21st within the US, but I can't confirm it.
Can someone let me know.

So here are a few cards I made, and I need to get sent out ASAP.
This one is my favorite.
I painted some orange scrap paper with red and green acrylic paint ( watered down)
and let it dry.
I then cut out the triangles to create the banner.
I used the Basic Grey Jovial paper to matte the triangles,
i mounted them with foam dots and added a little bling and a sentiment sticker.
This one was a treat.
I was trying to figure out a way to use your stamps in a unique way
(the challenge this month)
So i used Versamark and stamped my journal block randomly
over the green patterned paper.
I then dusted it with puffy white embossing powder and heat set it
( it puffs up when it gets hot)
Then I cut out a tree shape, used white glue and vintage glass glitter for the tinsel.
Another little gemstone and a sticker and this baby was done.
Here is a close up of the stamped images...
And since it's getting down to the wire...
I bought these little cards from Michael's in their $1.50 bin.

I adhered some patterned paper behind the punched out Snowman
A Crate Paper border and some glitter... and it was done.
I wanted to show you non-card makers that it doesn't have to be complicated
to create your own Christmas cards.

Ok, so I saved the best for last...
Check out Mandy's card...
That girl blows my mind. What an absolutely stunning card.

The next time you'll see me post cards will be Dec 24th....
so I guess I better get done these Christmas cards
and start working on some New Years ones!
