Merry Christmas! ...Last Minute Drop-Ins

I had a little bit of time and so I made a couple last minute cards.  Hubbs is sick, so staying in and resting hoping for enough healing before tomorrow!  These two cards, one will start off my stash for next year -- yay!  Maybe I can be timely next year  :o)

The first one is made with a new NBUS die, and I couldn't wait to use it.  I was so happy when I received it to find out that it not only cuts but embosses too!  Zoom in a bit and you can see how beautiful it made those leaves!


I was hoping that the stamping off to the left would give an impression of not only "trellis" but of a holiday trellis -- see those cute little stars!  Again, I love those embossed leaves...

This next one was also a new purchase, NBUS.  I had seen many others use it on cards, and I fell in love.  Not sure if it's the mix of fonts, paintability, matching dies or what it was but I really wanted to make a card this year with it!  Shhh this one's for Hubbs....

Well thank you for stopping by, saying hello and giving me a moment of your already busy day!  Blessings to all of you...

Hugs,
TK

  8. I feel that homemade cards are so much more sentimental than buying them. These are so creative and pretty!
