A few Christmas cards

This weekend while hubby was gone to the football game I was able to sit down and create a few cards. It doesn't happen very often that I actually have time to come up with my own designs either, so I was proud of myself. I had seen the foil used on a blog before (I think it was Dawn's Stampin Thoughts) and I have wanted to try it. So here is the card I came up with.
I think it gives it a really elegent look, but it is kind of a pain. I did about 15 cards as I will be using them for Christmas and it took quite a while. You have to cut the foil exactly right, then run it through the Big Shot. Then, I used the masking technique and had to use the stampamajig to do the ornaments and that took a while too. Overall, even though they took forever, I think they turned out good.

The second card also took a little time as I used the Stampin' Write markers to color the stamp. This one is simple, but I still like how it turned out. This is another card I will be using for Christmas.
Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, what a gorgeous card! I've never seen foil like that, how beautiful.

My hubby saw yours at the game, did he tell you?
