Some Christmas Cards

First let me just apologize for the sorrier-than-usual photos. We went to a Christmas party and by the time I got to photograph these it was dark. It rained all day today anyway, and tomorrow I have to go to work. My DH is going to take these to this year's card lady at church tomorrow morning, so tonight was the only time I could take pix.

This first card I cased--you can see the original HERE. I used last year's SU Christmas DP. The stamp set is SU's Holy Triptych. I stamed in in Soft Suede and used a blender pen and Champagne Shimmer paint to color the bottles. I sponged the edges of the main panel and the DP with the shimmer paint also. I stamped a scripture from ODBD inside. Card base on the first two cards is Gina K Heavy Base Weight Cream.

On the second card I decided to let the DP do the work for me LOL! It's really hard for me to cover up beautiful paper. The label is from Spellbinders, the sentiment is ODBD, stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink. I sponged the raised areas on the tag ends with CC ink also.

For the last card I embossed an angel from Holy Triptych in silver on vellum CS. Die is from Spellbinders. I embossed the Marina Mist layer with the Textile CB folder. Card base is PTI white.

I made two of each of these designs for her--I sure hope she likes them. Thanks for looking!
