Now onto my projects for today.  Since I am trying to use my scrapbook paper and supplies up before purchasing more, I am making personal christmas cards for my family and friends this year.  So here are two more cards I created with paper scraps.

 For the first card, I used a stamp and matching die set from the Stamps of Life.  This is the first time I have used stamps with a matching die, and it was fun.l  I stamped the image with black ink on white paper then use the die to cut out the stamp image.  Then I used the die to cut out white on white flock paper and colored part of the stocking on colored paper  I also used stamp set message and stamped it in red on green paper.  Dimensions for card base 6x12, score at 6.  Green paper 5 1/2 square, Santa paper 5 1/4 x 2 1/2, and Red stripe 5 1/2 x 1 1/2.  I added some snowflakes stickers and put rhinestones in the middle.   I pop dotted the stockings.

For this card, I cut two christmas trees with sizzix christmas tree die(one in red and one in gold).  Card dimensions 5 1/2 x 12 score at 6 in Burgundy, Ivory 5 1/4 x 5 3/4, 5 x 5 1/2 Snowflake paper, 4 x 4 3/4 Burgundy stone, 3 3/4 x 4 1/2 christmas paper,   I adhered each layer.  Then I adhered gold tree to side.  I pop dotted red tree on top of gold tree with gold tree showing as a shadow.  I added some ornament stickers to the tree.  I added snowflake stickers to 3 corners and a christmas sentiment at the top.

Thanks for stopping by, and your next stop is at the fabulous Lisa where I am sure she will have something spectacular to share with us.
