Builder Christmas wheels and Merry Christmas cards...

Here are the last two cards made at my Christmas card stamp-a-stack last Wednesday. The first is a 6" x 6" piece of textured Baja Breeze card stock, folded in half with a strip of Candy Cane Christmas dsp and Wild Wasabi card stock. We wheeled Little Cardinals, Little Christmas and Little Ornaments on a Basic Gray pad, then colored in the images with markers. The button is from the Regals Designer Button pack.

The idea for the second card came from the Stampin' Up! convention I attended in July. It starts with a Very Vanilla card that's been run through an embossing folder (Finial Press here, though Petals a Plenty is what I was look for and couldn't find). There are a couple strips of Jolly Holiday dsp with a strip of Cherry Cobbler cs that's been run through the Scallop Trim Border Punch. We punched out two Cherry Cobbler 5-petal flowers using that punch, crunched them up and distressed them and added a clear rhinestone brad. The sentiment, from All Holidays, was inked with markers and punched out using the Holiday Mini Decorative Label Punch.
