Stampin' Lllamas Christmas Blog Hop

It's here, it's here!!   That wonderful time of year when the elections are finally over and the thoughts of crafters turn to Christmas, and if you haven't started yet, it's time to get going!  I made some Christmas cards back in August, you can take a look at them *here* or click Christmas in the list of Labels in the left column to see all my Christmas projects.

I created 2 versions of my second Christmas card this year.  First a very simple version that would work well for mass-production, and then one that I've "stepped up" with dry-embossing, a colored base and a decorated interior panel.

  Stamp sets: Everything Eleanor, Delightful Dozen 
Colors: Garden Green, Raspberry Ripple, Whisper White  
Tools: Small Heart and Owl Builder punches, Framed Tulips embossing folder
Accessories:  Stampin' Dimensionals, glue dots, white taffeta ribbon
Techniques:  inked only the outer portion of the medallion stamp with a marker to create the wreath,  faux bow is punch art, fork bow dyed with Raspberry Ripple ink 

Finally, I used the same medallion stamp from Everything Eleanor with images from the Mixed Medley Hostess Set to create a square Christmas tag.  Colors are Always Artichoke and Raspberry Ripple.
