Christmas Card Series: A Merry Merry Christmas!

Hello Again Bloggers!
I gave a sneak peek of two of these cards on my Facebook page Monday and here are the others I made!

Jingle Bells!


Embossed foil paper (didn't photograph too well)

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care...

Stamped image of tree 3 times on green paper, then used gold embossing powder.
Glued the trees together to make a 3-D tree.

All I did here was add Stickles glitter glue to existing image on the paper.

Used chipboard sentiment and glued to front of card, and viola!  A Christmas Card!

They are made from paper by One Heart...One Mind (now out of business).
I purchased them on sale at Stamper's Ink in Shawnee, KS. but Tanya Kostynuk, owner of Stamper's Ink has no more in stock.  She still carries other cute lines of paper, however!

The paper line I used is called "merry merry too" and features several double-sided coordinates along with one single-sided paper called the "cut-apart cardmaker".
I selected color-coordinating cardstock, cut and scored them and made the card bases, all ahead of time.
Cutting out various shapes of cardstock, I arranged the pieces of paper in ways that would go together.  This was easy because all the papers coordinate with each other.  Using the "cardmaker" paper I could really get some cute cards put together!
Then I found Christmas-themed chipboard shapes in my own stash, which I used for embellishments. Buttons, ribbon and glitter helped to complete the cards.

(Although the company is out of business, I did find a site that sells these papers and their other lines, which are all really cute.  Click Bargain Paper to go to this website.)  I have a surplus of this paper line and would be happy to put together a "KIT" for anyone interested in purchasing one.  It will make 8 cards.  Just leave me a comment with your information and I'll mail it to you!

Happy Crafting!
