Hey there! We celebrated two birthdays yesterday! Two of my sons have birthdays this week; Troy's birthday was yesterday and Logan's is on Wednesday. With both of their birthdays so close to Thanksgiving (Logan was born the day before Thanksgiving) their celebrations have sometimes gotten lost in the shuffle of the holidays. We decided to not let that happen this year!
This is a good group of cards, so let's get started!
First, a lovely Carols of Christmas swap featuring the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Marbled Background. Silver Glimmer paper, Silver Sequin Trim, and Rhinestone Basic Jewels add fun sparkle. This card was created by Cathy Miller.
Next, an Eclipse technique Christmas card using the Large Letter Alphabet Framelits and Christmas Pines stamps. Created by Landa Cartwright
"to the world" is from Hearts Come Home.
Carol Slack sponged a background of Pool Party and Dapper Denim, then subtly stamped snowflakes with Whisper White Craft ink. She cut the houses and church with the Hometown Greetings Edgelits, the tree with a Card Front Builder Dies. She added little pieces of So Saffron card stock behind the windows to make light "shine" through. The greeting is from Star of Light in the Annual Catalog.
Lovely as a Tree has been in the catalog since before I became a demonstrator over 15 years ago, but it's still a favorite of just about everyone! The creator of this easel card stamped the Night of Navy card base with the Sheet Music background, then heat-embossed the tree with white powder on vellum. This card could easily be a luminaria; all it needs is a battery votive inside!
Silver 1/8" ribbon, a Foil Snowflake, and rhinestones add sparkle. The greeting is from Christmas Quilt.
