A Couple of Christmas Cards

This card was created using the Day 216 sketch at 365 Cards. It is 5"x5." I used a pearlized cardstock, then embossed it with a snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder. I cut a square of gold shimmer cardstock at 4"x4" and some green shimmer cardstock at 3 1/2"x3 1/2." I stamped the wreath image on some white cardstock, then embossed it with gold embossing powder and trimmed the cardstock to fit.

For the inside of the card I cut some gold shimmer cardstock, green shimmer cardstock and white cardstock 1/8" smaller than the previous layer. I then stamped my sentiment on the white cardstock and embossed it with gold embossing powder.

For my second card I used the sketch at Die Cuttin' Divas. I am also entering it into Cooking with Cricut's "anything goes" challenge. This is a 5 1/2"x4 1/4" card. I used a pre-made DCWV card for the card base. I cut some red Core'dinations cardstock at 4"x2 3/4" and some patterned green paper at 3 3/4"x2 1/2." I cut a triangle from the red cardsock and used a Martha Stewart border punch on the edge of it. I also wrapped the rectangle with some gold ribbon. The ornament is cut from the Christmas season cartridge and pop-dotted to the card.

For the inside of this card I cut some red cardstock 1/8" smaller than the card base, then cut some green shimmery cardstock 1/8" smaller than the red cardstock. I cut some white cardstock 1/4" smaller than the green and stamped the sentiment using pearlescent ivy ink by Tsukineko.
