World Card-Making Day fun - days later!!


I know a lot of y'all had lots of fun last Sat. on World Card-Making Day, I know I did with a few of my friends who came over to make Christmas cards.  I had a few cancellations so I ended up with some leftover supplies.  I got my new goodies from Gina K Designs release last week so I got to work with making some cards to send for her great contribution!  You can read all about it here but basically you can win a LOT of awesome goodies if you make a card to send to one of our overseas troops (and provide an extra envelope so they can send the card to a loved one) - it's a wonderful idea and I'm happy to be a part of it!  I actually made 6 cards to send & plan to share them all with you.  

Both cards use Warm & Cozy Christmas I just love these bundled up kiddos - the girl with the snowgirl complete with a pot for a hat! I FINALLY got my snowflake cuttlebug embossing folder and on the burgundy one, I rubbed the Holiday Metallic Rub-on paste on the snowflakes but since I took pics once the sun went down, it is hard to tell in the photo.  I also used it on the watercolor paper focal image.  I also used the Peerless Transparent Watercolors, which are just so vibrant!!  I love 'em!!  Winter Foliage (one free with 3 set) was used for accents on the designer label punch for the sentiment.  Finally, the ribbon is the Holiday Pure Luxury-Holiday
which is just that - pure luxury!   

On the boy card I used Handsome Hunter and ran the craft white pad over it to bring out the snowflakes, which is a lot of fun!!  I have to admit though, that I mistakenly colored their candy canes like they are walking canes!  My DMIL & DH pointed that out to me - ha!  My response which I say all the time, I can color anything the way I want to - it's a chocolate candy cane!

These are sooo AWESOME, Donna!! I really liked the first one with the brown background and sponged edges--so elegant, but cute, and the second one...WOW--those white flakes really pop and add so much to the theme of the card. GREAT JOB!! I want to come stamp with YOU!! =)
