My monthly quota of Christmas cards

I have been challenged to make 5 Christmas cards each month on Paper Wings (my quota to have enough by Dec. 1). I already have 2 done because of a Blog Hop early this month so this past week I got my other 3 finished.

This card is made with TAC stamps from the set Hung on a Tree.   I layered with some "mirror" card stock I had.

You an see the Silver Shimmer spray but I couldn't get the right camera angle to get the shimmer.  I colored with Copics and added the gems.  I feel this card is missing something but I just can't put my finger on it.  Any ideas?

This card uses a stamp by....  is it Cow Town Rubber Stamps??  I've had this stamp for at least 10 years.  I'd seen it once and did a search for it as I just had to have it.  The text is from a TAC set called Noel Noel.

I added some Stardust Clear Gel pen to the hair, beard, and belt buckle.  I was debating using some white liquid applique on the coat but thought it would overpower the image.  I may try it yet.

Here I embossed the white card stock with a Cuttlebug embossing folder on my Wizard.  The stamp is by TAC in the Jingle Jolly set.  Have you figured out the tree yet??

It's the aluminum seal from a coffee can! I used my bone folder to give it some dimension and added the angel eyelet at the top.  I still have one more tree to work with so hope my mojo gets inspired for my 5 Sept. cards.

Did you enjoy the Fond/Final Farewell hop in tribute to The Angel Company?  I relived so many wonderful memories and enjoyed seeing cards from the past.  If you didn't see it just look at the post before this.
