Trio of Christmas Cards


Hello there...I'm about to put the Christmas stamps away for a bit...need to make a few more tags and gift card holders and then I think that will be it for a while.  But...before I do that, I want to share three cards as I play along with the Verve challenges.  Maureen is always showing gorgeous inspiration using felt with die cuts...so this card is a nod to her gorgeous inspiration each and every day.
For my next card, I used some of my new MME Lost & Found Papers...and of course my favorite SU Cherry Cobbler ribbon.
And my last card, it is a bit hard to see, but the inked panel has snowflakes stamped on the ink panel too.  I had the stamps out and this card was the first attempt for the sketch above, but I too a different direction that didn't follow the sketch!
I hope you like them and that your week is moving by quickly!

What a great display of holiday cards. My favorite is the last one with that beautiful blue color, the ribbon and those sweet little bells.

Lynn, these are all so gorgeous! Love the color combo, gorgeous bow and pretty felt flowers on your first card! The doily looks fabulous on your second, and you know I adore ANY snowflake card you create - beautiful!! :)

Fabulous cards!! I'm really loving that red ribbon and felt die cuts in the first one!! Great use of that Verve!!

Maureen said...

love, love, love them! I'm so glad you like the felt! I think I just like running it through the Big Shot to see how cleanly it cuts and the cozy feel of it :) Your ribbon on the first card is frilly and fun! Love the blue on the third and that you didn't follow the sketch! (that's just the good little Catholic girl in me liking a broken rule or two ;) teehee :)

All so beautiful Lynn! You really amaze me how you manage to create so many beautiful cards, and have a busy family and work--WOW!

Marisa said...

Great mix of cards. Love the first one - those felt snowflakes are great and well done using the ribbon for the vertical panel! You are rocking the snowflakes in the last one and lovely, rich, red on the second.

These are all beautiful, but I especially love the first one with the felt snowflakes. You did an amazing job of keeping the elements of the layered sketch while staying true to your clean style. Lovely!
