Christmas Card Wrap Up - and WCMD Giveaway Winner!

Good morning! I had great intentions of getting all of these posted before or on Christmas, but it just didn't happen! So...although it is a bit late, I just combined them all into one post to get them finished before New Years at least! I am also announcing the winner of the WCMD giveaway at the bottom of this post - so make sure and scroll to the bottom! :-)

This first card is actually one that I made with a set I got published in the December issue. The call was to make 4 coordinating cards with one pattern paper pad and one stamp set. Somehow I lost track and made 5, so I picked my favorites and submitted them, and this was the leftover one! Using Neat and Tangled's Simple Christmas and an October Afternoon Paper pad, as well as a bit of fussy cutting, heat embossing, jute twine, and circle punching:

The next card was also a submission card from a while back that was never picked up - for this one I used a Unity Stamp image called Santas, Stockings, and Candy Canes, etc... {Wit and Wisdom}, stamped and heat embossed on vellum, then used some machine stitching to attach it to my pattern paper.

And lastly, a couple using the Unity October 2013 Kit of the Month - Oh Christmas Tree (this one pulls up as the most popular KOTM when you sort by most popular, and I can easily imagine why!)

For this first one, I also used my Bow die from My Craft Spot to cut a felt bow - LOVE how it cuts the felt! Added the image and sentiment heat embossed, some Glitz Designs pattern paper with torn edges, and a couple of jingle bells as well!

And finally, the same image with a different sentiment on green chalkboard paper - chalkboard technique! A little pattern paper from October Afternoon, and some glitter washi with jute twine to finish off! is the winner! Sorry I'm so late!!!

YAY! Congratulations Kathy! Please send me an email at when you get a chance so I can get that package mailed out to you soon (once I finish unpacking a few more goodies to add!)

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you had a very Merry Christmas!!!
