Hoping all had a nice holiday and enjoyed their friends and family. Here are photos of cards I received this holiday season from other card makers --- always nice to get these cards:
This card is from Lynda P and her blog is: paperartscafe.blogspot.com. The card is a white card base that has been embossing with a glitter pen added to that. Then gold foil ornaments and "believe" phrase. White pearls were added to the card front. Hard to photograph the gold foil but very shiny IRL.
This next card:
This card is from Dawn Olchefske -- the gal I order my Stampin Up products from. Embossed white front with printed velum in a light blue cut out for the card front. The silver on the vellum and the silver snowflake have sparkle and shimmer IRL.
This next card is from Mary H:
Mary works her magic with her Copics on all her cards and her use of dies is always a nice touch. Here is her blog: carolinacardsbymaryh.blogspot.com.
Another card that the photograph did not capture the sparkle and shine of the gold tape across the card front. This is from Donna S and her Close To My Heart page is: donnaschaeffer.ctmh.com. For this card she used a cream card base and the banner greeting is from the Close To My Heart stamp set "Believe in Christmas". Nice layering on the card front.
This last card is from Brenda Cook ---
Brenda taught a card making class I took with her and her friend, Jane, back in October. They are both excellent teachers and both have great ideas. Love the colours on this card -- a kraft colour card stock with the red. Snowflake was punched out on the kraft coloured card stock with the red dotted piece behind it. Really like the frame stamp she used on that piece as well. Her blog is: cardscraps.com. Brenda has had serious health issues of late and I was so happy to receive a holiday card from her. Sending best wishes to her healthwise.
All cards are great--special each one since they all are made from card makers that love their craft. Also nice to receive these handmade cards as a piece of each card maker is delivered with their cards. Happy me to be on all their mailing lists for holiday cards. TFL and YOLO
