The End Of My Christmas Bonanza

I’m back and ready to share the last of my Christmas cards with you today.  I promised you that you would see my little angel friend again and here she is.  I adhered her to a fun red and white designer cardstock by Michael’s Recollections.




The sentiment I’m using on this card is one that I created and featured on my blog as a freebie in December.  I think in times like these when there is so much violence and war around us that it’s a very appropriate sentiment and one that I hope people will take to heart!



This card is a variation of another card that I made earlier.  Not a lot of explanation is needed. The only real difference is the paper I chose and the ribbon I used.  The sentiment used is one that I featured as a freebie in December.SAM_0259


This card was fairly simple to make (i.e. not too time consuming).  I took a piece of green gingham ribbon that I had in my stash and wrapped it around a piece of designer cardstock. I adhered that to the base layer of my card (this time right-side up, lol).





Next, I found a piece of cardstock in my Michael’s Recollections stack that had an image of a Christmas tree on the bottom right-hand corner of  it and cut around the outside circle of the image.  I added it to the center of my card with some pop dots (even the white stitching was already there; how convenient, lol)




To finish it off, I added a die-cut that I had in my stash to the bottom right-hand corner of the card and I was finished!






I loved this little snowman so I used him several times on my cards.  This time I cut around him with my Silhouette Cameo and did the same thing with the snowflakes.  I used pop dots to pop him up on the card.  The sentiment is a freebie from Sara Sherlock at Folded Paper Printed Pixels that I just printed on my printer and cut around with my Silhouette Cameo.  The snowman was colored with Bic Mark-Its.





Here is a closer look of the bow.  The ribbon was a gift from the giveaway that I won from Kadie at In My Minds Eye Creations.  Thanks again, Kadie :-)






Closing out the end of my Christmas Bonanza series is this card which may look familiar as I posted something like it earlier in December.  I changed it up a little by making it a square 6x6-inch card and adding a triple looped bow made with some gold, wire-edged ribbon that I purchased at Walmart.  The sheet music on the front of the card was one that I found on google, printed on my printer and cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  I added some jewels to make it sparkle.

Here is a closer-up of the triple loop bow that I  made with my Bow Easy and a closer peek of the sheet music!  SAM_0243

And finally, here is a look at the sentiment that I put inside all of my cards.



I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Bonanza series.  I had fun sharing it with you! Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.  I appreciate each and every one of you so much. 

Wishing you all an abundantly blessed 2013!
