Painted Garden - Joy

This is a card inspired by Christy Fulk and it was perfect to have my club members make it for my Christmas Card & Cookies class.  It uses the set Painted Harvest.  The colors I used were Real Red, Garden Green, Basic Black, Whisper White and Christmas Around the World DSP.  The "J" and "Y" were die cut from the Large Letter Framelits in the Big Shot and attached with Multipurpose Glue.
The ink I used was Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green, and Real Red.  The bow was ribbon from 1/8" Real Red Ribbon in the Holiday catalog.

Good Tidings

This is a card that some of my club members made at the Christmas Card & Cookies Class.  I chose these colors (Tranquil Tide, Pool Party, and Rich Razzleberry)) because I already used my other green and red ink pads for another card.  I had shoe box cards for them to do and they really enjoyed it.  They brought their own adhesives, but I had everything cut out and supplied the ink and paper.
The base of the card is Tranquil Tide cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored at 5-1/2" in the middle.
The second layer is Pool Party cut at 4" x 5-1/4".  The Whisper White cardstock is the third layer cut at 3-3/4" x 5" and the Good Tidings stamp set is a 2-step process.  First they stamped Pool Party with the bold holly stamp and then Tranquil Tide with the image holly stamp.  We really liked the color combination.  Then the berries were added with just Rich Razzleberry ink instead of doing a 2-step with them.  I thought Silver Mini Tinsel Ribbon looked great with this card wrapped around the two layers of Pool Party and Whisper White.  The Good Tidings sentiment was stamped with Black Memento ink and cut out with the Layering Circle Framelits and then layered onto a Rich Razzleberry Scallop Circle.

Merry Little Labels in Garden Green

Here is another card using the Merry Little Labels set but using Garden Green instead of Night of Navy.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Be Merry.  I used a half of the gold Foil Snowflake instead of the silver with this card.  For the inside sentiment, "Have yourself a merry little Christmas" I used the Christmas Quilt set.

Merry Little Labels

Night of Navy has been one of my favorite colors for Christmas cards and with the Silver Foil Snowflake, it just makes it adorable with the stamp set Merry Little Labels.  I love the little deer and the trees.  I punched it out with the Everyday Label Punch.  The Designer Series Paper I used is the Naturally Eclectic.  I thought it looked somewhat like snow and with the background Softly Falling Embossing Folder used on the Whisper White cardstock makes it all about snow.  On the inside, I stamped the sentiment "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas" from the Half Full stamp set in Night of Navy ink.
