The Making of my 2016 Christmas Card

Every year, I create a new design for a Christmas card and make them in batches. This year, I've made an embossed set of cards that are simple and elegant.


Here's a shot of a bunch of the cards together:


Here's an up close look at the "snowflake" card. 
I used an embossing folder to make the snowflake impressions
with my Cuttlebug.


I stamped Isaiah 9:6 inside the card in Holiday Red ink
from Close to My Heart.


Here's an up close look at the "dots" card.
I used an embossing folder with my Cuttlebug, again.


For the red ornament, I used Close To My Heart's Art Philosophy cartridge. 


And the ornament image on page 33.
I cut the image from red card stock on my Cricut Explore Air, sizing it to 1.5 x 2.5". 
I cut thin strips of the same red card stock to use for the "string" holding the ornament.


I stamped the word "Joy" on each ornament with Versamark Ink
then heat embossed with white embossing powder.


I love how they turned out!
Happy Crafting!
