Holiday Wednesday

I love this stamp but always seem to have a hard time doing something I like with it - well I like this card. The stamp is a retired one from the angel company. I stamped it once on card stock coloring the nativity scene and another time on a scrap piece and cut that one out and the center of the "O" also, colored it and used foam tape to pop it. The glitter on the star is bananan transparent from the art glittering system, I don't know if they make it anymore. Around the edge is red line tape with the glitter on it. The letters have stickles applied to them. The red dp is from bo bunny, the green dp is from JoAnn's. The red pearls are from Queen & Co. The poinsettias are from Hero Arts, I think. And the gold in the center of the poinsettias are from robin's nest. 

I made another card for a birthday today. It is for my girlfriend who always teases me about being older than she is - all of 9 months so I thought I would get her back a bit. It uses a magnolia Tilda stamp.

It is colored with copics. She is popped up with foam tape. Nestabilities were used to make the scalloped ovals - all three of them. the dp is from basic grey. The flowers have silver stickles for the centers. The words were printed from the computer.  A fiskars punch was used for the border. I glued hearts from the border in the center. And now for the inside to remind Kay of how old she really is.

Hope you enjoy.

Both of these cards are so pretty! I love that you tease your friend about aging...I recently found some great quotes for birthday cards that aren't as nice as yours!!! LOL. My fave is: You know that old, moldy stuff that grows in the back of refrigerators? Yeah, don't let me find you back there again! LOL. Gina L
