Glittered Christmas cards

I created Christmas cards with the spare trees I glittered when I was creating my calendar!!
I layered the glittered trees over some gold foiled paper, added a ripped embossed paper snowbank and a gold embossed layered greeting.  A quick and easy cards and my first Christmas cards this year!!
I had Christmas cards left over from last year so I have been less motivated to get started really early this year.
I am happy to have been able to create some cards with the bits I had left over from my class.  It is always harder to use up bits later on when the vision for them has been replaced with something else!!


Anniversary cards

Made up a few anniversary cards with hearts I glittered when I was creating my calendar pages.  They also feature some of the restructured paper I created a few weeks ago.  I love the look of this paper!!
I combined red and white heart ribbon with strip of black border punched (SU) cardstock and layered it over the restructured paper to which I had added a stitched border using a fine tip permanent marker.  I used a white gel pen to embellish the scallops.  Attached the glittered heart using 3D foam tape.

I really love the look of  these cards!!


Wedding invitations

 This is the final design of wedding invitations I created for a couple who are getting married in just less than a month!!  I have been waiting until the package was received and they were happy with their little bundle before I posted them here.

I love the simple elegance of this design!
I used a flourish embossing folder to do both sides of the white gate fold invitation and embellished the front with three hearts (SZ - tipsy heart) - two embossed and one silver foil!!  The inside features a single laser printed panel with their wording.
These are the samples I provided for them after they had been through the links to cards on my blog that I thought might be appropriate for use as wedding invitations.  They simply substituted the silver foil for the red!!

I wish them blessings as they start a life together and hope they will always celebrate the good of being together!!
