A Few Fun Christmas Cards

Good Morning Everyone...Thanks for stopping by. I hope you had a great weekend! I worked on a few FUN Christmas cards this weekend so you know my weekend was great! This first one has a lot going on, I used Peachy Keen Scrapping Cottage Penguin die, CC Design Christmas Bulb die, Sizzix Christmas Tree and Button die, Martha Stewart Alpine Edge punch (for the snowflakes), and I punch the ornaments from the Martha Stewart Christmas Tree punch. I put several layers on Glossy Accents on the bulbs so they are really thick. You can't tell from the picture but they have a lot of dimension---
These next 2 are for the twins. I used the Scrapping Cottage Christmas Puppy die, Memory Box Jingle Bells and Cuttlebug Snowflake die. I used Liquid Applique on the hat and the sentiment is computer generated.  I usually try to do theirs the same but a mirror image but no matter which way I put the layout, I just couldn't get it to be a mirror image so I ended up putting their names on the front of the card. It wasn't until I went to take picture that I thought what I should have done was flip flop the papers...duh--- 
And finally, for our vet...I used The Scrapping Cottage Christmas Puppy and Shih  Tzu Peeker, along with the Quick Kutz Christmas tree. The tiny flowers on the tree is from The Scrapping Cottage Sugar Egg die and the snowflakes are from Martha Stewart Alpine edge punch. These dogs are an incredible likeness of our dogs, so I will be using them again for our dogs groomers card---
That's it for today... Thanks again for stopping by. Enjoy your day and have a wonderful week!

OMG Kelly, these are just too cute! So much detail in all of them, they jump right off the page! How you come up with so many different designs is just amazing and so perfectly lined up. My favorite is the card for your vet, I love the "Yappy Howlidays" sentiment.

Kelly,
I love them all . . . they all manage to make me smile. Love the glistening bulbs on the first one, such vibrant colors and those tiny bows - oh my gosh, what patience!
The bell border on the twins' cards is so cute, the colors and patterns you chose for all the cards are really special. What can I say about the vet's card - those tiny paws and all those details, how precious. They must love to see you come in.
