First Christmas Times Two

As part of the Holiday Catalog Swap, I received two cards that used the First Christmas stamp set but are very different. I wish the pictures showed up better because both of these cards are exquisite!

This first card is from Michelle Turner and she used the following Stampin' Up! products for her creation (I am making my best guess from looking at the card):

  • Card stock: Whisper White, Midnight Muse, Whisper White; Silver Glimmer Paper
  • First Christmas stamp set
  • Midnight Muse Classic Stampin' Pad; Platinum Shimmer Paint
  • Labels Collection Framelits and Apothecary Accents Framelits
  • Silver 3/16" Metallic Brad; Dimensionals; White Bakers Twine
I love the way Michelle used the Framelits and how she sponged the Shimmer Paint on the stamped piece. Thank you Michelle for this beautiful card!

The second card was made by Diane Lethbridge from Lake Placid, FL. For Diane's card she used the following Stampin' Up! products:
  • Card stock: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla and Brushed Gold
  • First Christmas stamp set
  • Early Espresso Classic Stampin' Pad; Versa Mark stamp pad
  • Gold Embossing Powder
  • Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Labels Collection Framelits, Modern Label Punch, Large Oval Punch
  • Crumb Cake Seam Binding; Basic Rhinestones; Dimensionals
So many things I like about this card but my favorites are the way she layered the ovals and the Modern Label Punches. Also like the torn edges of the embossed Crumb Cake piece. Thanks Diane for this great card. 

Thank you for visiting today. I hope you enjoyed the cards today!
