A Couple More Gift Card Holders and an Ugly Sweater Card

Here's a couple more of the larger gift card holders I made last week.  I like these so much better than what one purchases at stores where gift cards are sold.  At least, they are a bit more thoughtful as they take time and effort to make them look fun and special.

This one uses the Mistletoe Kiss ATC stamp set which will be retired the end of the month along with the cute Winter Fresh Prints paper pack that I used.  I used some Journey Glaze and Sparkle Dust on the berries and colored the image with Copic markers.

This one is a bit more simple.  I used the Merry Swirl ATC stamp (on backorder at the time of this posting) but the text is from the Be Happy set that came with the November KOTM.  That fun set will be available for purchase either February or March 2016.  I added dots of Stickles to the tree for the ornaments and used my Stardust Clear Gel pen on the word Sparkle and that it did!

I also made a fun card using the soon-to-be retired Ugly Sweater stamp set.

  I also used the soon-to-be-retired Winter Fresh Prints paper pack, Sweet Pear & Forest Forest card stocks.  I did use 3 pieces from the Journey Sequins Holiday Elements.

I did all my stamping with Fresh Forest ink but you can see a hint of trees in the sweater and that was stamped with Sweet Pear ink.  A bit of Silver and Red Stickles for bling and the Ugly Sweater is complete!

I have a few Christmas cards from last year so I am fairly all caught up in cards.  Those old ones are from stamp sets I had before I became a Journey Coach.  I kept a few from back then as they are special to me.  How are you doing with your Christmas cards?  Got them done??  I'll still be making a few more.
