Season's Greetings...

Christmas is just around the corner and I'm still hustling along trying to be prepared.  So one last post before Christmas to share with you my cards I made to send out.
Here's a peek at the inside verse that I computer generated to the inside of each of my cards.
However, I did start my cards early in the year so I would be able to send these out right after Thanksgiving.  I never want to be making my cards at the last minute and find it easier to do them a little bit at a time during the months when I get inspired.
So I started them early in June and took pictures for you along the way to show you how I do little bits at a time.
I stamped and embossed about 35-40 of the Poinsettias and cut them out at my leisure.  It then punched out many of the Martha Stewart ivy branches and glued the branches to the back of the Poinsettias and let them dry well. What you can't see on my pictures is I used green glitter paper to punch out the green branches to give the card more bling.  I used Stickles Iridescent Glitter  on each Poinsettia to add a little more shimmer look to each flower, as well  Unfortunately you cannot see the pretty glitter on the green branches on my photos.  Doing so just added enough bling and simplicity to each card to look quite simple but elegant.
I always try to make my Christmas cards simple as possible since I send out at least 35 each year to dear friends and family and don't want them to be to bulky for extra postage. 
I hope your all ready for the Christmas holidays and may your Christmas be filled with love and blessings in 2104!  I am wishing each of you a MERRY Christmas!
from Leanne and family!

  4. Very, elegant and nicely done! I started earlier this year than I ever have with making my cards...but they will still be sent out late...I think I have to learn how to make one layer cards...smile...

  5. Oh Leanne, these are so beautiful and elegant and thank you so much for showing how you go about making them! I should take a leaf out of your book! Love the message on the inside too. I now wonder though how you did the beautiful embossing on the white cards themselves? Would love to know what die that was, or did you buy them like that?

    Wishing you and yours the most wonderful Christmas and all the best for 2014!

  6. Merry Christmas! I wish you lots of peace, love and happiness in company of all your family!
    Thinking on you on this day! Yours Bibiana
