Joyful Holiday Blessings

Today I am playing with Virginia’s View Challenge #11 – Clean Slate. I really like her challenge that give us so many inspirations to create. I hope you wanna check our Virginia’s challenge and play along 🙂

This month main theme is Clean Slate. She provides these inspirations:

Aren’t they pretty inspirations? I am thinking of Christmas cards when I saw them 🙂 So, I created not only one but 2 cards:

Joyfull Holiday Blessings 1

Joyfull Holiday Blessings 2

I found the holly leave embossing folder at Hobby Lobby. Using my WRMK Evolution Advanced embossing machine, I embossed the front cards. The first card, I stamped and embossed the sentiment, then run it through the machine. And the second card, I run it through the machine and then added the stamped, heat embossed sentiment on a green cardstock.

Here are the close up on the sentiment, I used Winnie and Walter – The Big, The Bold and Blessings, Ranger Gold Princess Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it using my Craft Heater.

I finished the cards with twine and die cut poinsettia flowers (from Lori Whitlock) that I cut using my Silhouette Cameo.

Do you start early making Christmas cards or later?

  1. Wow, Helen, these two cards are simply gorgeous! I love the textures with the dry-embossing. The gold embossing looks tremendous in this! So glad that you join the fun over Virginia’s View “Clean Slate” Challenge!
