Card Creating Tuesday

Welcome to Card Creating Tuesday. If you have not come from Erica's Blog, please stop over there to check out all the wonderful cards the Design Team has made today. They are so creative!

I made two cards today for you!  The first was made using a premade card from Hobby Lobby.  I added a blue background from some paper I had in stock and then added some Jillibean paper. This paper is so bright and colorful. Such a fun paper to work with.  Using Pink By Design Stamps, I embossed the image and "Happy Hooliday".  I then added a spellbinder Christmas Border.  Using one of my Favorite carts, I cut two trees from Celebrate with a Flourish and some matching paper.  It is whimsical. :) Hope you like it.

Secondly, I made another card, this time using BoBunny paper. I really love this paper. Again, using a premade card, I took two sheets of different BoBunny paper and using my Xyron, added them on the card. I found this Green ribbon yesterday at Michaels and just found it so pretty with the little snowflakes on it. After I used the paper punch edger, I inked it up, and added some Bling with my Irock that I found when cleaning my craft room. (Amazing how that happens. :))  My ornament is from Scandinavian Christmas cartridge and I thought it just matched so well. I again used Xyron to put all the little pieces together. In fact, I am going to enter this in the Xyron contest and I hope you will take the time to vote for me.

So that my projects for today. Hope you enjoy and stop by again soon.
