Here are some cards I have dubbed around with.The ornament cards are from Silhouette from Lori Whitlock. I had trouble with the outline to put onto the card with the birds. The outline didn't fit right so I fudged the settings and recut it and it still didn't fit to my satisfaction. Too troublesome - so I left them off the green and red cards. The trees are cut from a previous design and I used distressed ink as the background.
If you look very closely at the red card you will see that ornament was cut from embossed paper.
Now here is a trick I learned. I love these embossed papers. They are expensive to buy so you can make your own with embossing folders. You need a machine such as the cheapest one you can buy that I have found is the Sissix (I have to check spelling on that). It is shaped like a purse. That is $39 to 45 depending if you find it on sale. Well, I bought a folder for 3.99 and took it home and ran it thru my pasta maker I use for clay. I ran it thru one way, turned it over and ran again and it came out perfect... Cool huh.... Making things we have on hand work for us is a wonderful thing....
Till next time. LJ
