Hi, to all our crafty friends and family!!!
Kathy, here today, wanting to share with you a few Christmas cards I’ve done in the past few weeks . . . and what a perfect time for it, too, with it being snowy (well, here’s it’s a bit icy underneath the snow from last night). And with the Christmas Specialy package on sale at PaperTemptress for 25% off along with Kraft paper and all Mica/Metallic papers, you will have all you need for Christmas cards . . . GREAT paper and inspiration.
The first card I want to share is one I did using one of my all-time favorite PaperTemptress papers – White Crepe (ruche) paper along with Heavy Vellum, Heavenly White 120# paper and Cryogen White paper (all from PaperTemptress ). I had chosen a digi image called “New Baby” by Ike’s Art for Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet because I thought it would make a PERFECT Christmas card and remind us how Christmas started. Here’s how it turned out:

And here’s a couple other cards I’d like to share that I made this past week using PaperTemptress papers. For the 1st one, I used Jupiter Red mica/Metallic paper and Cryogen White paper . . . and the 2nd one I used White Crepe (ruche) paper, White Leather and Red Pepper Skinny Columns.
