Christmas 2013 cards

In an effort to get all my backlog of cards posted, here are the ones I made for family members for Christmas, 2013.

All the images were colored with Copic markers on Cryogen White paper.  The colored cardstock was all Stampin' Up.  The flowers, ribbons and any other embellishments were from my stash.

This first group of cards went to my son's family in Georgia.
I got a lot of new die cuts this year and tried to wear them out on the cards!

The snowflakes were from several places.
The corner motif was Snowflake Corner from Memory Box.

 The image is In the Snow Scarf Tilda.

 I used Snow-Tex on the roof, chimney and the snowballs in Tilda's hand and on the ground.

Snowy Roof is the image That pops up to "hide" Tilda as she throws snowballs at the guys below.

Here are two more new die cuts - Frosty Border and  Santa and Reindeer from Impression Obsession.  The designer paper is from Magnolia.  Edwin with Sack is the featured image on this card.                                                     
To add some interest and make an easel card, I
cut out the Sack with Presents and had it pop up
on the card base.   
 Another new die cut!!

This one is Frostyville Border from Memory Box behind Christmas Eve Edwin. 

 Liquid Applique was used on the tree and yellow Stickles on the star.

To make this card special, I added two pop up decorated Christmas trees with Snow-Tex around the trunks and on the ground.

 The trees were a Marianne Designs die cut.

 Stephen didn't want anything this Christmas from me except for a wonderful fancy card.  So I really worked hard to make his fancy.

The designer paper was from Magnolia.  The image was Magnolia Winter Night Background.  I added lots of Snow-Tex to it!  The image is bordered with lots of branches punched out of glitter paper with Martha Stewart's Branch punch.

 Ski Edwin with Snowflakes was covered with Snow-Tex and Liquid Applique.
The Frostyville Border is across the bottom of the card.

The sentiment was from Magnolia.

I have more Christmas cards to share in another post.  Thank you for staying with me through another rather long post.

See, as I stated earlier, you are the MASTER of easel cards, Kathy!! These are all fantastic (even though I shudder to think of winter now). Especially love the large snowflakes, trees and Santa's sleigh diecuts you discovered - super addition to your artistic talent already!! Cookies and milk for YOU - hahahaha.
