Aaaaaand That'll Just about Do It.....

Well, I am happy to report that I am here with my LAST Christmas card post from the 2013 cards.  I have already done some 2014 cards and a few other projects, but those are for another day.

So, without further ado--
I made these--
 Love the tags paper.  Notice the restraint on the bling factor.

 Letting the paper do the work here.  Just added a few snowflakes, branches, and sequins, and the twine.
 I hand stamped the background paper on these two. 
This is the one that killed my Martha Stewart snowflake punch.   Wah. And I LIKED this one, too...

 Sweet Christmas words dies from Paper Smooches.
 This is an older Spellbinders' Ornament die, with a Sizzix snowflake, and Papertrey Ink word die.  I stamped extra snowflakes on the paper with gold Delicata ink.

Yeah.  Not sure what this one was.  Fail.
 I could use about 20 more of that Dec 25th flair...Note the Enamel Accents dots.  Love that stuff.
This is some of that pretty-yet-maddening red plastic sheet. Oh how I wish it liked to be die cut.  SO shiny....
A little black pen turned the teensy red birds into cardinals here.  I like them. Die cuts that small are HARD to keep up with, though!

Okay, so,  I certainly did NOT save the best for last.  Here they are for posterity, if for no other reason!
The thing I like about Christmas cards, though, is that you can do a good bit of experimentation, and you can count on just about ANYTHING being appreciated when you send it out.
Thanks for sticking with me through this one.  Better things to come, I promise. 
Now, if I can drag my butt and my stuff downstairs to get photographed....
Thanks for stopping by!
All Best-


  1. These are all great, Richard, but I have to say that the penguins have stolen my heart! Kudos to you for already working on your 2014 cards! Glad to see your post this evening!

  2. I think they are wonderful, Richard! I am trying to grasp the thought that you make unique cards, not just a prototype or two with 50 copies of each! Amazing work and creativity! Hugs!!!

  3. PTI''as blog hop made me stop by and after seeing your card I also looked at your Christmas cards I must admit that you are very talented. These are beautiful!
