Still making Christmas cards...and a few note cards for a gift

These are almost the last Christmas cards I will do before I move on. I still have to make my Christmas thank you cards, although since we are all cutting back so much, I probably won't need very many of those. I bought this reindeer stencil over the summer from a stampin up rep. in Virginia. I was looking forward to using it this Christmas. I'm sure I will use it again and again. I really like it. This set was quick and easy.

Supplies: paper/ DCWV Christmas notecards and The Paper Company, ribbon/JoAnn's Christmas ribbon, PK Glitz glitter glitz, dreamweaver stencils embossing paste in metallic gold and pearlescent, Stampin Up Reindeer stencil


These cards were made for a friends birthday that is coming up. I missed a lot of birthdays this year, but this friend always looks out for me. Her birthday is ingrained in my brain so I don't forget. :) She is absolutely the easiest person to do anything for. She is appreciative of anything you do, and lucky for me she loves blank notecards! I picked these monogram notecards up in Marshalls. I look for nice designs sometimes that will look even nicer once they are embellished. I stamped the designs on them, traced them out in glitter pen and added some bling. I think they turned out pretty cute. This is just a sampling because I am doing a set of 12 (each card will be different). I am only posting these 4. I tried to match the image color ink to the color of the monogram that was already debossed on the card.

Supplies: Stamps: inkadinkado clear and Heidi Grace clear; ink: Stampin Up night of navy, always artichoke, rose red, and chocolate chip; Say it in crystals by Prima Marketing , Inc, Paper: (monogram cards) by Gartner Studios, glitter pen by jelly roll (bought at convention)

  1. Hi Rachel,

    You've been busy. I like this reindeer than the one that SU has now called "Dasher".
    Easy cards! easy for you to say. I'd have not known what to do with it.

    The note cards look really nice.
