Holiday cards...

While we sent out photo cards this year, I still had a few "real" cards to make this holiday season.  These first two were for various secret santa exchanges I took part in. The first card was for a girl who loves "things with handwriting on them" so I used SU's presto DSP & sponged night of navy and bashful blue, cut a navy ornament & stamped a Merry Christmas greeting on it & "hung" it via a tiny strip of cardstock onto the presto panel. I used shimmer paint & rubbing alcohol spray to sparkle up the embossed panel & mounted it all on a navy base. some sheer white organza ribbon & finito!

Mr. Monkey man was for a kids exchange - same sentiment, and one of the child's favorite animals is a monkey (at least the day his mom asked him ;)) so I figured a sock monkey Santa was safe. i flocked up the hat & colored the presents with spica pens for some blingy-ness.

These last two were for one of my naturopaths - she commissions some cards every year. I based the lovely tree one on the prettiest holiday card EVER and the mittens card on Lydia's card...  I'd seen the tree stamped somewhere else (Unity blog/FB perhaps?) and ordered it before I saw that card, but man, am I ever glad I have it. I looooove that tree. And really, it's Unity. are we surprised? Didn't think so. :P I added a few of Taylored Expressions' Twinkles in the tree to hide the glue dots under the vellum, hah...
