Christmas Cards: Pink Paislee 2010

And the Christmas card parade continues... :)

These are my first Christmas cards for this year, made in October (early, eh?).  Like i mentioned in another post, i wanted to use up my Christmas papers from last year.  These are made from Pink Paislee papers "Father Christmas."  I cut up the individual rectangular images and made them the focal points for the cards.

Here they are:

Have stamped on the background cardstock with My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Christmas ornament stamp using VersaMark. I love how it turned out! Used Sizzix die for the flower. The flower center is from the TH Rosette die cut, and have used the same stamp on it as the background. "Special Delivery" sticker is from Simple Stories.

Beneath the "A Merry Christmas" sticker is pleated paper.
Supply list:  Kraft cardstock; Sizzix Tim Holtz Rosette die; Oops! Blooms leaves; lace trim colored with Aged Mahogany Distress Stain; sticker - Reminisce; adhesive - Beacon's, Glossy Accents.

Again, stamped the background cardstock with My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Christmas stamp.  Definitely looks better than with a plain background, in this case :)
Supply list: Kraft cardstock; Sizzix Tim Holtz Rosette die; Oops! Blooms leaves; lace trim colored with Aged Mahogany Distress Stain; sticker - Reminisce; adhesive - Beacon's, Glossy Accents.

Stamped the background cardstock with Tim Holtz music sheet stamp.  Stickled the rosette too and the mat of the sticker.
Supply list: Kraft cardstock; Sizzix Tim Holtz Rosette die; Oops! Blooms leaves; lace trim colored with a mixture of  Studio Calico Mister Huey and Perfect Pearls (had been experimenting :) ); sticker - Reminisce; Ranger Stickles; adhesive - Beacon's, Glossy Accents.

Supply list: Bazzill cardstock; patterned papers - DCWV; bling - Prima; lace trim colored with Aged Mahogany Distress Stain; adhesive - Beacon's, Glossy Accents; die - Spellbinders Labels 17; ink - Versafine.

Another simple card, with background using patterned papers.
Supply list: Kraft cardstock; patterned papers - DCWV; pearls - Prima; adhesive - Beacon's, Glossy Accents.

Upon looking at the following cards, i realize only now that these do not have sentiments on the card front!!!  Could i still add them?  Should i? :) 

Supply list: Bazzill cardstock; patterned papers - DCWV; lace trim colored with Aged Mahogany Distress Stain; adhesive - Beacon's, Glossy Accents; bling - Prima.

Supply list: Bazzill cardstock; patterned papers - DCWV; pearls - Prima; lace trim colored with Aged Mahogany Distress Stain; adhesive - Beacon's, Glossy Accents.

My apologies for the photos; i kept getting glared ones when i shoot them straight on (yes, i do need to brush up on photography techniques heehee!) that i tilted the (point-and-shoot) camera on the cards.  Took the photos in the evening and only had the kitchen light on.  For my 12x12 layouts, i place them on the floor near our door (to get much light), but whenever i do this with cards, the cards always look (to me, anyway) flat, so i just had to prop them up.  Any suggestions would be welcome!

Thanks for taking the time to visit!

Hope you enjoy the week ahead!
