I am really warming up to the Christmas season, and have another holiday card to share with you, as well as a summer card I made a few weeks ago and hadn't posted yet.
For the Christmas card, I wanted to show off a way to use the HC stamps for a quick and simple card. I have read comments here and there from people who say they want something that looks fabulous and can be done quickly and is mailable, so here is a sample of that
The image, from Heartfelt Creations, is stamped on an oval with a layered background, and just a tiny bit of colouring. There is a strip of inexpensive ribbon from a bin at Micheals, and I used a gold Encore pad to swipe over the green layer which was dry embossed. You could use pretty much any embossing folder to tie in--polka dots or swirls or snowflakes or whatever and any colouring medium on the angel. The sentiment was stamped above. I hope this gives you some ideas of quick and simple cards that will still have people oohing and ahing :-)
As for this summer card, I was thinking of my mom when I made it, who lives on the other side of the country from me. It too features a Heartfelt Creation image:
