More Christmas Cards...

It’s the middle of the year, the hottest time of the year…so you know what that means….Time to start your Christmas/Holiday Cards! Why not jazz up your holiday time with some of the snazzy papers that are offered by the Paper Temptress. (Click HERE to get all the details!!)

Paper Temptress has some great textured card stock that makes card making a snap! When you have to create many cards, simplifiying stamps is a great help. The red peper column paper is lined with classic stripes. The green felt paper has a subtle texture...a bit softer and thus a nice contrast to the striped red. I added the sentiment on the sparkle gold. Here is a detail so you can see the glints and gleams. It's so lovely in real life!

Ths Paper Makeup image was stamped and embossed onto watercolor paper. While typically watercolor paper is ripped as fine artists all know, it cut so neatly in my nestabilities. And again, watercolor paper has some nice soft textures.

After adding a few simple embellishments, I have a classy Christmas card that can be easily (and quickly) reproduced!

That shimmery gold paper is SO nice. And I am a fan of any texture...I think velvet fits with a Christmas theme perfectly.
