Do you Believe?

I made a few more Christmas cards yesterday morning before going over to my mom's for more food and games.    I thought I would share a couple with you.  These were very easy and very quick!  Just the way I like it!  (Although I list the Item # for the cardstock, these cardstock colors are included in the Mistletoe Level 2 paper pack)   For my card bases I used Close To My Heart's Colonial White Cards and Envelopes Value Pack (X1410).   You get 50 cards (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) and envelopes for only $14.95.  This comes to about 30 cents per cards which is very economical!  (And saves your paper cutter blade from cutting all that cardstock for cards!)

On this card I wanted to make my reindeer fly so I used 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation stamping.  I stamped Santa twice.  To get a good deep color on Santa and to cover up the white edges where I trimmed him, I used a sponge dauber and inked over the entire surface and edges of the Santa.  I cut out the snowflakes on the 2nd Santa and adhered them to the first Santa with glue dots to give just a little dimension (doesn't really show in the picture).  I used the 3-D foam tape to make Santa stand out from the Reindeer.
