Christmas Card from Antique Postcard

The main image is cut from an antique postcard.  The background was embossed with the cuttlebug then sanded. 

Piece of Cake

Another birthday card with the Piece of Cake CTMH stamp set.  I used all purple and blues against a black background from CTM.

Father Christmas with Mistletoe

I love this new "Father Christmas" stamp from CTMH.  I colored Santa with Copics and added a little Copic Spica to the holly leaves and Santa's eyes so he'd have a twinkle in his eye.  I used Liquid Glass on all the holly berries, and Prisma Glitter on his beard.  The papers and ribbon are from CTMH's Mistletoe creative basics set.  I made the paper ribbon (thanks to Teresa Black's tutorial), and added punched greenery and pearls along the top.

Clear Christmas Card

I used a CTMH clear card and ran the front through the Cuttlebug with the snowflake embossing folder.  The CS is CTMH's Lagoon.  The inside stamp is from CTMH's "Captured Moments" and the outside sentiment is from "Tannenbaum."  The snowflakes and icy borders are punches, and I added diamond Stickles.
