Christmas Cards Continued

Here are the rest of the Christmas cards I made for Christmas, 2013.

All of the images were stamped on Cryogen White cardstock.  Designer papers were from several different pads and stacks and I don't remember which ones now.  All the flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The ribbons and tinsel were from my stash.

This cute little North Pole Tilda was for my daughter, Becky.

I added some Liquid Applique to Tilda's hat and over-sized gloves.

The Day Before Christmas Edwin was for my favorite son in law, Jeff!  He laughs when I say that because he's the only one!

I added some branches punched from glitter paper to the printed boughs on the designer paper.  They were punched using the Martha Stewart Branch punch.

In the Snow Ski Tilda went to my grand daughter, Megan.
I added Snow-Tex to the image and extra stars to the swirls on the background paper.

I used the Memory Box Frosty Border die cut to the bottom.  I used a glitter paper from Joann's called White Gloves for the border.

Of course this was an easel card!
On the bottom section, I added the Memory Box Frostyville Border cut from the same glitter paper.

I don't know what happened to the picture of my grandson Jacob's card, but it was no where to be found on the computer :-(

This is the front of the card for Brandy, Jacob's girlfriend.

Noel Tilda is looks frustrated trying to get her Noel banner to stay untangled while she tried to hang it up.

Here is Brandy's card open showing the Frostyville Border die cut across the bottom.  I really love that border!  The snowflakes were different die cuts.

Skyla is Brandy's older daughter and is a very sweet girl.

Her card features Christmas Eve Tilda mounted on an SU Real Red oval.  I ran a piece of red ribbon around the oval to break up the intense color.  The corner dies are Memory Box Snowflake Corner.

Here's the open view showing the decorated Christmas tree cut using a Magnolia die. I'm not sure what punch the snowflake was.

Brandy's younger daughter Lexi received this card featuring In the Snow Heart Tilda.  The mounting circle and the inner Inverted Scalloped Circle were cut using Nestabilities dies.  That combo produces an interesting look.

The snow hearts are covered with Liquid Applique.  The corner swirl is Memory Box Snowflake Corner.  The tree is a Magnolia die.

This a rather different Christmas card.  I cut the mounting panel using a Marianne Designs die designed by Anja van Laar.  I love the intricate grid in the background of the die.  It was the perfect size to mount The Day Before Christmas Stocking Tilda.

I added Liquid Applique to the cuff of the stocking.

The inside of the card has double panel created by simply cutting the die twice, then cutting on piece in half and attaching the halves to the uncut piece.  The center die and swirls are from the same Marianne Designs set.

For my younger grand daughter, Paula I used In the Snow Ski Tilda.  I added Snow-Tex and Liquid Applique to the image.

The mounting square was cut using the Nestabilities Scalloped Squares.

The corner die is Memory Box Snowflake corner and the bottom border is Frosty Border.

The bottom of the easel card features the Memory Box Frostyville Wreath.  I really love the dies in the Frosty and Frostyville collection.

Thank you for sticking with me through this very long post.  I believe that this catches up all the Christmas cards I made for Christmas, 2013.
