Father Christmas

Merry Christmas Eve day!

I stamped this image and colored it in about two weeks ago and just couldn't decide on how to use it, so this card really did take only five minutes to make.  I was just playing around with a retired embossing folder and decided to make this card.  On this Santa, I did a lot less coloring than the first one I shared last week with you.


Here is what I used:

Stamp set: Father Christmas
Card stock: Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler
Inks: Soft Suede and Craft Whisper White
Markers: Real Red and Basic Black
embossing folder- retired 

I wish you the merriest of Christmas!  Mary

Night In Bethlehem

Hello to all of you, are you all ready for Christmas by now?  I think I'm all set for the big week-end.

My husband likes to send a special card to his friend that he use to work with, so I made this one for him to send.  I did use a bigger card base, as husband likes his cards BIG!  So I wanted to try this new Christmas set, as I've seen so many pretty cards made with it, so here is what I came up with.


Since the card base is much bigger than what I'm use to, I feel like it is not one of my best, so I'm hoping his friend will like it, I think his wife will for sure!

Here is what I used:

Stamp set: Night In Bethlemem
Card stock: Night of Navy and Whisper White
Ink: Smoky Slate, Night of Navy, Soft Sky, Pool Party and Marina Mist
Large Letters Framelits

Thank you for stopping in, I appreciate it!  Mary
