I always surf the net for awesome cards to make. Not that I copy them exactly, but it does give me a heads up on creating my cards. I would like to thank all those creative card markers out in cyber space for the inspiration that you have passed my way, and to make the challenge of creating cards easier.

The BELL CARD - a red pattern paper, will need to ink the edges with a dark red ink spot , stamped the bell image on a piece of cream card stock. The image is a foam stamp that I picked up at Michael’s or Walmart last year, and used my LePlume markers to color the stamp.. Stamp on a small oval shape cream cardstock the words Season Greetings. (Stamp set from Michael’s), and ink the edges using a red ink spot from Stampin Up. Glue the red pattern paper to the base card, and then cut out a window, then glue the bell image in the window of the card. Embellish the card with a small sticker (3-D) in the top corner of the window and to the bottom right of the card glue the wording.

The GIFT CARD - Used solid green for the background, ink edges with dark green. Then cut a piece of pattern paper to make a border on the lower portion of the card, ink the edges of the border strip. Then you will need 2 different pattern papers to make the gifts, and red ribbon for the bows (attach the red ribbons with glue dots), You will need to ink the edges of each of your gifts. Stamp the words Merry Christmas (Michael’s $1.00 stamp) on the green cardstock.

The SEASON GREETING card. Stamp the image on a piece of cream cardstock and matt with a piece of red card stock. Be sure to ink the edges of both the cream and red cardstock. A red pattern paper for the background, and a strip of a green pattern paper. Stamp on a rectangle piece of cream cardstock the words "Season Greeting" then round off only two of the corners and matt with a piece of cardstock and ink the edges of both the cream and red cardstock.
