The Last of the Cards ...

  Whew! I think I'm finally finished with Christmas cards, so I wanted to share the last batch I've been working on. As I mentioned before, I hate mass production, so I did multiple designs this year and just did a few of each. Coming up with designs that were simple and flat enough to mail with a regular stamp was the goal, but how I longed to tie some bows on these and add some buttons, bells, and other goodies!

This little postcard was inspired by a page in our Christmas mini album project from earlier in the fall. My aunt and uncle took a trip to Paris recently, so I wanted to make them a special card that brought back fond memories of their trip.

This simple design features scented embossing powder, so the gingerbread man really smells like a cookie!

And finally this simple wintery scene was done with inking and my Spellbinder's oval dies. Some of my relatives live in areas without wintery weather, so I wanted to send a little bit of Montana to them this Christmas.

I hope you are having a wonderful week, my friends! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love them all! I like how you made the first one into a card! Super cute idea! That last one is gorgeous! I'd like to know the process on that one!

  2. What a beautiful work!!! I love each and every one of those cards! Your family and relatives are very lucky to receive them!
