Back to the season at hand

4 more Christmas cards that were long finished and forgotten. But since it's 3:30am, and I have nothing else to do I thought It's now or never.
This card is a design from Ruby Burns teabag cd at http://pages.prodigy.net/rubyburns , I got the cd last year and they are all super designs.

I used a piece of gauze and stamped over it to get the bottom background, and a scrap piece of paper to do the top.
Stamped and cut out the tree, added the ribbon from Jody Morrow's May arts ribbon share, at http://confessionsofaribbonaddict.blogspot.com/ .

Another Fairysong stamp, http://faeriesong.com/ all glittered up, the border is a tape runner (I forget from where right now).

I thought I'd try to do a stitch card, and all by hand (no sewing machine yet) lol, and I must say I did it pretty even considering that I almost went blind pierceing each hole along my ruler to get the machined look.
I used the thread that Dianne got for me for my stitch cards, and chipboard letters from a kit I got at Costco a while back.
Have a great day

Awesome cards, Tonniece! :)

The black one has a modern look. I like it! The moon is looking very much like Santa there, and there's a beautiful gem on the paperfold (I like all these details, Tonniece!). I must agree with you, the hand stitched card looks very pretty. Again, you used an uncommon Christmas colors. I like these surprises :) And, of cours,e I love the fairy card. I grin when I saw the Christmas berries on her chest. Hehehe. Yes, what a great Christmas touch (wink & grin)

You did all by had...it is lovely, I would've sworn you did it with a machine!It is beautiful. I can believe that at some stage you'll get tired of making only christmas cards, but that'll soon be over and then you can let your imgination run wild again in all directions.
