Tis the Season....

Hello & Happy Thursday my favorite Crafty Peeps!
I hope your week has been a good one so far! If not,
Don't worry... the weekend is right around the corner for ya!

Today I've got a couple of Christmas cards to show you!
That's right... I'm sticking with my plan to make 1 holiday
card a week! Well... today it's gonna be 2 and you'll see why
in a second -- :)

I really LOVE how these cards turned out --

This 1st card is what I had planned to do from the get go -

-- Supplies Used --

 (Christmas Tree Cluster SVG) is from the Silhouette store #163528
I used Canson Water Color Paper
Card stock - Stampin' Up, DCWV Shimmer Lite green, & Vellum
Stitched card mat die - My Favorite Things
Distress Inks - Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Evergreen Bough
"JOLLY" Word Die - Sizzix (Happy Holidays Set) 660977
Sentiment - Craftin' Desert Divas (Tis the Season)
Versa Mark Ink, WOW White Embossing Powder
Misti Tool, Heat Embossing Gun, Silhouette Machine, Big Shot
Round Blender tool
Nuvo Glitter Drops - Silver Moondust
Sheer Shimmer Spritz Spray - Frost

The 2nd card came about, because I didn't want to waste those
cool trees! So I thought I would re-create my 1st card 
just adding the solid trees - and I gotta say I really like them both! :)
The (Jolly) word die was cut out 6 x's (3 for each card)
 to make it stand out over the vellum.... With the
Sheer frost Spray, my cards really have a nice shimmery
shine in the background - 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!

Theresa, you are completely brilliant! I love that you made the second card with the scraps... both versions are gorgeous! I love the Christmas tree clusters and the festive shading for the background. The sentiment is so happy! I love the design in which you did it. The vellum is gorgeous and the jolly is just so.. jolly! Hehe! So happy to see Christmas cheer tonight. Wonderfully done, my friend!
