More Christmas Cards in a box!

I made the singing mice and now I thought I would try making the singing reindeer.  This card is for my son and his girlfriend. There are 3 of them with the sizzix Christmas tree in the background all decorated! 

Also made the card in the box with angels.  I made a couple of these cards for some girlfriends. The angels are on pinterest and I think they are on splitcoast too.  I used SU build a blossom punch, bow die from Dee's distinctively, a couple of circle punches and then for the wings I used velum and used memory box's butterfly die. 

Lastly, this is a birthday card for my boss.  His birthday was on the 18th.  I have made these cards a long time ago for other employers but I hadn't made on for Dr. Donnelly.  The stethoscope is actually a brad, so cute, from eyelet outlet.

I am still hard at work with my Christmas cards but should be done soon.  I better since Christmas is only 4 days away.  Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Season Birthdays

It has been a very busy holiday season with Thanksgiving and now shopping for Christmas.  I am not one that starts very early because I love the hustle and bustle at this time of year.  But the first of this week, my twin sisters had a birthday so I was busy making cards for them. My mom asked me to make a couple for her to give to them so here is the first one.  Connie likes minions so I made this one for mom to give to her.  They are adorable.  It is punch art and simple.  I saw it on pinterest (where else). Pretty straight forward using nestabilities circles and cuttlebug EF to emboss the bib on the overalls.

Chris has a dressform that she uses for a lot of different things. So I thought the Tim Holtz die would be fun to make a card for her. I used Graphic 45 paper which is another favorite of hers. Added some pearls and a prima flower.  I used sizzix EF to emboss the dressform.  I made this one for mom to give to Chris. Pretty, pretty!!

For both Chris and Connie I made the Pop N cut cards.  This one is for Connie.  A lot of punches and nestabilities for this little minion. Chris' card is SU's cupcake punch.  I used the paper doily for the tablecloth and the pop n cut die is the chair but I just cut off the chair and used the legs.  I am headed back to my craftroom to make my Christmas cards.    Thanks for stopping by.
