Christmas Card Swap - Card # 1



My stamping sistah, Michelle, and I decided to do a Christmas card swap with each other. The game plan was to make a total of 10 cards each and swap them. I was a little disappointed with my work and how a few of my cards turned out, so I wanted to share with you just a few of the ones that I was proud of. I believe Michelle was planning on posting her Christmas cards on her blog and I don't want to spoil it by posting hers, yet. Her cards were amazing! If she doesn't post them, then I will! She really was the one who saved me from my stamping demise. She is the reason how I got my mojo back.

This is Christmas card # 1. I used Making Memories cardstock and Close To My Heart Christmas Poinsettias stamp set. I embossed the pointsettia and then colored it in using my CTMH markers. Added some Stickles glitter to it and topped it off with rhinestone stickers in the middle. The Merry Christmas is from the Lizzie Anne Designs stamp set Holiday Cheer. The ribbon is also CTMH. I love this card because it reminds me of a Christmas package. Let me know whatcha think!

I really love this card! What a fun thing to do, swap cards! Except, I am such a procrastinator. I joined a thanksgiving card swap (see my blog). I mailed them on Friday, they are due on Monday. The post man said that it would get there then!
