More Christmas Cards

I guess I'm in an Ornament themed mode this year. These cards received rave reviews from the recipients! Super easy and super fast. I used my Fiskars paper trimmer to make the border and a circle cutter to make the ornament. Make a bow, add some ribbon and a piece of colored card stock (to the red version) and viola (oops voila!) - done and done. Fast and easy to replicate for making multiple cards.

Christmas 2013 Ornament Card

I am in LOVE with this card!  I drew the silver "string" line with a VersaMark pen, then embossed it with silver embossing powder. I stamped the ornaments with VersaMark ink and embossed with the same embossing powder. I used a foam ink applicator to apply pink and green ink to the ornaments. I made the silver "hooks" from silver jewelry wire and adhered them with glue dots and stamped the small snowflakes in green ink. I so wanted to keep this card and not give it away!

Friend's Birthday at Work

I have seen these time and time again online and always wanted to make one. So, for a gag gift for a friend at work, I made one for her birthday. She LOVES chocolate. It's a Hershey Bar wrapped in foil and then brown paper and finally a homemade label adhered to the top. I had a lot of fun making this!
And her card...
Who eats green cake??? These were the colors I had, so that's what I used!

Beaded Sandal

This was my first completed beaded foot sandal. It took 4 attempts to get it right. You wouldn't believe how difficult it is to size these things!
