Three Christmas cards

Hi everyone, I have a couple Christmas cards to share today.

First up is a Christmas card using this week's Fall To Layout #67. I used last year's Snow Wonderful from Verve. This has to be my all time favorite little snowman!! The amazing little snowflakes are sequins!

Yep, thanks to my GF Anne, I discovered sequins from Cartwright's Sequins! So cute, cheap and fast shipping! I added tiny green rhinestones to the centers. The DP is Imaginisce, Polar Expressions -love this line cause it has sparkle in it!! I emossed the top part of the card with a snowflakes EF. The snowman's scarf is popped up at the end for some dimension -cute!!

The next card was for this week's CAS challenge which was to use white and ONE other color (even black counts). I chose GREEN!!! The sentiment is from Verve's O'Christmas Tree. The border punch is from Martha Stewart and the cute pattern paper is called December Details from Bella Blvd! Won't this card be easy to mass produce?

And last, but not least, I have a card using last week's Mojo Monday sketch. This card just makes me HAPPY! I used some of SU! Felt Flurries snowflakes (on clearance) and last year's Christmas paper from MME Flurries & Frost collection. I love this collection, sometimes I wish they could put out the same papers 2 years in a row!!! Oh why not?!!!

The tree and snow line are from Verve's Christmas in the Air and the sentiment is from Holly Jolly. This card has lots of different bling. I used Kaiser rhinestones and Zva Creative flower rhinestones.

Oh and a couple sales to mention: Verve has all their Fall and Winter sets on sale thru the 15th. Hope Stamps Eternal has all their Martha Stewart items 40% off and has Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg in stock now!!
