I was fortunate to be able to start my Christmas cards before journeying to California and while in California for my fall trip to visit Mom. It is so much fun to make these two annual trips because both my mother and my sister live in the same town and they are both cardmakers so we have a delightful time!
I decided to start my Christmas cardmaking with my Mom and my mother-in-law as they both have to be mailed to California. This card is for my Mom, using Stampin' Up products stamp: Snow Much Fun; Paper: Always Artichoke, Regal Rose, White Vellum; EFolder: Perfect Polka Dots. SU markers used + Dazzling Details. Card idea from Liz Thayer. I enlarged my card and added a pink card base. I changed the sentiment and added a pink mat behind it, and made vellum layer one unfolded piece. I also elevated the ribbon rather than place it in the middle. Thanks, Liz. . .I love the embossed dotted vellum. It's such a nice touch.
Alice's card is one I made at a Christmas Card Palooza while in California. It is a card taught by my sister, Heidi Gonzales: My Lil' Scrap Corner, and just love it. It has the vintage flavor that I love, and the felt poinsettia that we made with a dies and Big Shot is absolutely beautiful. Heidi's card designs are also so creative and a delight to make.
