Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas!  Today,  I thought I'd post a few more of the Christmas projects that were made this season that I never found time to post with all the busy-ness...  Merry, merry Christmas to you all:)
This is a Christmas card I made for one of my dear friends and features the Tea Shoppe stamp set in addition to all the Christmas goodies I've been using all season.

 This is another set of tags and gift enclosure cards I made as a thank you for my secret santa at work...

Neighbour Gifts

Just a few of the treats we did for neighbours this year and their cards.  Merry Christmas!!

Evergreen Home Decor Piece

The frame I used for a base for this project is just a pine frame you can get at Michaels.  The dsp I used comes from the Snow Festival dsp pack and the stamps are from the Evergreen stamp set...I love the 2 step stamping techniques you can use with this stamp set...and I love that the top tree I stamped (and embossed in black) has the words to Silent Night:).  I also used the Lacy Brocade embossing folder and one of our brights buttons and some cherry cobbler baker's twine...and some rhinesone jewels.  The finished project was sprayed with some champagne mist.

Ornamental Giftcard Holder

This giftcard holder came from an idea from a Kelly...and here's a link to her site where she has all the measurements and instructions.   It was super simple to make.  I used the Festival of prints dsp and the Ornamental Keepsake stampset and framelits to decorate mine.
