Thank You Cards for Christmas

Here is the Thank You notecard that I made to send to everyone.
I used the Festive Flurry Framelits dies to cut the silver foil paper.
I then put it in the snowflake embossing folder being careful to line it up with the big snowflake to get the texture centered.  The designer paper is from the winter frost series.
The greeting is from the "Lot's of Thanks" set using the smokey slate ink.
Whisper White paper was mounted onto Coastal Cabana paper.

2013 Christmas Card

This is our Christmas card for 2013.
Every year I keep saying that I am going to make a Christmas card that doesn't involve a lot of parts and take a long time to put together.  Well that didn't happen again. 
This card had a lot going on.

 The background (soft suede was embossed using the "Pretty Print textured impressions folder"
Then I sponged it with soft suede ink to bring out the texture.
Santa is stamped using the "Santa's List" set with basic black ink.
I then colored him using cherry cobbler ink and baked brown sugar with blender pens.
His cheeks were made rosey with pink pirouette ink.
I used the 3 inch circle die to cut out the circle.  I then sponged the edge of Santa's circle with soft suede ink. The champagne glitter paper was cut out using the 3.5 inch die.
This snowflake involved using the festive flurry framelets to cut out the silver glitter snowflake and marina mist with the snowflake punch (discontinued).  The center is a Frosted Finishes Embellishment.

The inside greeting is the "Merry Little Christmas" stamp set in cherry cobbler and always artichoke.

I am adding the date info here for reference.
1600 will be the time for all dates

Below are the projects that we made Nov. 13th.
 This Christmas card used the Thinlits to cut out the Merry using the gold foil paper.
The Santa is from the Santa's List set and colored with cherry cobbler, baked brown sugar and pink pirouette ink using blender pens. 
 The window box below was decorated with 1 inch stitched edge ribbon.
The silver glimmer paper was cut out using the festive flurry framelits dies.
The box was stamped using silver metallic ink and the festive flurry stamp set.
We also decorated some candles, but I didn't get pictures of them. I need to  make sure I get pictures of the projects as we are doing them.
I had another project to do, but we ran out of time.  It also used the Santa's List set.
The Post Card stamp and a greeting from Christmas Messages set.
The paper is very vanilla with early espresso and cherry cobbler ink.
The card uses early espresso and cherry cobbler paper also.
 There were too many things that I wanted to show them.  So many things, too little time.
