I JUST HAVE TO SHOW YOU THESE CHRISTMAS CARDS!

I am very proud to show you these cards today.  I can say that because I didn’t make them.  These were made by my clever Mother-in-law (who is 87!).  She has just started getting more into cardmaking recently and just loving it.  I loved these cards she has just made and thought I have to show you her fabulous work.

Firstly on this card, trees were punched with the Tree punch from Rich Razzleberry from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack.  The white paper has been embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and adhered to a Tempting Turquoise card base. A non-traditional colour scheme here.

These next 2 use the ‘Festival of Trees’ set.  The left card is on a Real Red card base.  The scallop edge is cut with the Scallop Thinlet and adhered at an angle.  Great idea!  The star is from the ‘Bright and Beautiful’ stamp set.  The one on the right is on a White card base and the edges sponged.  The scallop edge this time is ran through the Big Shot with the Delicate Details Embossing Folder to give it some texture. The greeting is stamped on a piece of white card and added to the card.

Now for the next two. The one on the left has a large star cut from the Pool Party base card then a piece of Pacific Point card is adhered underneath.  A star is cut from Silver Foil Sheet and then another star is stamped and cut out with the matching Framelits and then layered together.  The greeting from ‘Bright and Beautiful’ is matted on a Pacific Point card piece and adhered to the card.

The right one is on a Real Red card base.  The ornaments are from ‘Ornamental Keepsakes’ stamp set.  Two Wild Wasabi Ornaments are stamped directly onto the Whisper White card mat. Another ornament is stamped in Real Red and cut out with the Framelits.  The “JOY” is from the ‘Bright and Beautiful’ stamp set and stamped in Smoky Slate.

Now for the last two which I think is very clever.

The one on the left is on a Blackberry Base.  The front of the card is cut at an angle.  Then a Whisper White angled piece is adhered to the front.  Stars are cut from Blackberry Bliss, Silver Foil and a white one stamped.  These are all layered together and the greeting stamped on the front. Inside on a Whisper White card mat the smaller stars are stamped in the upper right corner and partway down on the right side.  This is in Smoky Slate and I think Cherry Cobbler (?).  The card on the right is on a Whisper White card base.  The angled piece that was cut from the other card is adhered to the front of this card.  Then a large star is cut from both Blackberry Bliss and Whisper White and half the white star is adhered to the Blackberry card.  (Clever!!).  Then another star is cut from Silver Foil Sheet and one stamped on Whisper White. These were layered on the front of the card and a greeting is added.

What do you think?? Pretty clever, Hey! I am so proud of her.  I think she has done an awesome job.  So why don’t you stand and applaud my Mother-In-Law’s great results.  Or why not drop her a comment here and tell her what an awesome job she has done.  I know she would love that.  Her name is Verna BTW. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by and seeing these wonderful cards today.

Well, I might just have to go back to showing you my projects next post!!

Until then, Happy Stamping,

Jenny
