Christmas Cards

Here's two cards I made the other day but forgot to post them. I sometimes do that. When I don't post a picture right away, I sometimes move on without realizing I never posted the cards.

Anyway, this card was made with the retired stamp set "Gifts of Joy". This is actually the first time I've used this set. I had bought it because I knew it was retiring last year. I've bought a bunch of retired stamp sets when it went on the retiring list but still have not used them. Hopefully, I'll get around to using them before I forget I bought them.

Card Details:

Stamp sets: Riveting, Gifts of Joy
Ink: Prismacolor Markers
Paper: Real Red, Old Olive, Provocraft Holiday Stack, CB Embossing Folder
Accessories: SU Crystal Effects, Organdy ribbon, 1" and 1 1/4" circle punches, slit punch, 1/8" punch

Here the second card I made using the same set. I colored the image with Prismacolor Markers then applied Crystal Effects to several areas of the image to give it a 3D effect.

Card Details:

Stamp sets: Gifts of Joy, Riveting
Ink: Prismacolor Markers
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Sage Shadow, Whisper White
Accessories: CB Embossing Folder, 1" and 1 1/4" circle punches. Fiskar "Scallop" Scissors, Crystal Effects, Grosgrain Ribbon
