Dat 25- Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all. On our last day of the 25 days of Home made holiday gift ideas, we come full circle to the best home made gift of all, the love we can show to those who mean so much to us. Appreciate your friends and family and tell them often how much they mean to you. This gift is free and means more than any other thing in the world.

To help you tell that special person what they mean to you, here a a few more beautiful cards from Julie.

Holly Berry House stamp, Basic Grey and Graphic 45 papers, silver embossing powder, chalk ink, foam squares. This was a very easy card to make. I embossed the cross twice and cut out the desired parts to make a 3d cross when I used the foam squares. I used the Basic Grey paper as the base for my card and then covered it with the torn Graphic 45 paper and inked! Then I put the cross on top. Since the Basic Grey paper was the card base and thin, I needed to bulk it up so I used more Basic Grey paper as well as Graphic 45 paper inside. It gave it the needed heft.

Naughty or Nice?:
Inkadinkado stamp, Glimmer Mist, My Minds Eye papers, ribbon, stickles.
This was a very quick and easy card, perfect for a last minute card you need to give! I used the My Minds Eye paper as the card base. Their paper has a nice weight to it and doesn't need anything extra to make it hefty. I inked the edges of my paper with chalk ink and tied the ribbon on. Then I put the stamped image on the card with Glue dots. I then used Old Lace Glimmer Mist which added a nice, subtle glimmery sheen to the card. Finally, I used stickles on the center of the snowflake on the stamped image. Quick and easy!

Have a Safe and Merry Christmas
