Christmas cards

I just wanted to post some Chrismas cards I'm making for my sister to mail to people on her Christmas list...
materials: ivory cardstock, pattern paper from K&Company Yuletide
stamps: sentiment and star are Hero Arts Merry Christmas Trees CL459.
ink: Colorbox Chianti and embossed in clear powder from Stampendous!
gems from Michaels. 

For this card I used: ivory cardstock for card
All stamps are Hero Arts: music background CG222, big pine bough K5242, decorative ornament CG226, holiday sayings CL343.
inks: colorbox evergreen and chianti; archival galaxy gold. The edges are distressed in old paper from Tim Holtz.
Ornament is embossed in clear powder. Light green pearls are from Michaels. The twine is from The Twinery.com
This card I really like! The same ivory cardstock was used. The pattern paper is Yuletide K&C also. The twine and button is from Papertrey Ink.  The peace sentiment ( Hero Arts CL459) was stamped with Versamark Watermark then embossed with queen's gold powder from Ranger.
The die shapes were cut using Spellbinders dies labels four. Archival galaxy gold was used to distress dges.
Thanks for stopping by!!
