Try saying that title three times quickly!!  I thought I'd share with you a couple of the cards we made in my Christmas card classes this month.

This first one was a bit time-consuming, but well worth it; I'm pretty sure everyone who made it was happy with it.  I love it!  Stampin' Up!'s Ornament Keepsakes bundle makes it very easy to make great Christmas cards.  This is the front view, when the card is closed .....

....... but when opened, you can see it's an easel card:
Here's a full shot of the inside of the card:
Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes, Delightful Dozen
Card: Midnight Muse, Whisper White, Brushed Silver, Bashful Blue

The second card I have to share with you was made using the gorgeous Evergreen two-step stamp set.  We stamped the solid tree design in Crumb Cake ink, then gold-embossed the script overlay.  Lots of new bits and pieces on this one!

  1. These are both gorgeous cards, Christine. I think my fave is the Evergreen card - so rich looking with the embossing and the Cherry Cobbler.

  2. Lovely cards Christine. You've inspired me to ink up my Evergreen stamp and actually use it. TFS

  3. No doubt these were a hit Christine, they are both lovely! You can stop with the evergreen inspiration now....l don't need it, l don't need it...:0)
    The gold embossing over the Crumbcake looks gorgeous!
