Christmas cards and treats



Here are the two card I am making for a Home Business Fair on Sat. at the Fredericksburg Masonic Lodge (Virginia). I am putting 5 of each in a plastic card holder w/envelopes and selling them. I plan to make a few other small items to sell. The top one is using Scandinavian Season set in red and gold (inspired by Lee Conrey); the middle one is using an embossing folder from Cuttlebug and SU stamp from Curly Label Punch Bundle set and Night of Navy CS; the bottom one is "Home for Christmas" with white and Glorious Green. It is colored in with pastels (exception is red on garland is real red marker). I also made this at the Sr. Center last month (only one layer on top card then).


The mini Hersheys with snowman and Santa wraps were inspired by the tutorial for the Santa on on Dawn Griffith's website http://dawnsstampingthoughts.typepad.com/dawns_stampin_studio/2008/09/santa-candy-bar-wrapper.html

So easy to make and absolutely adorable. (Note: I couldn't find my white gel pen, so the eyes are not highlighted in pic - did so later)

Happy Halloween!


Here is a card that I made and sent to Jacob and a couple of friends. The picture stamps are SU, top is retired set "Home is Where the Haunt is"; the bottom is the a new wheel, Haunting and the words are non-SU and are from Art Gone Wild...the inside reads "on Halloween night" All four word groups are on a single wooden block. Used So Saffron, Green Galore, YoYo Yellow and Basic Black card stock.
