Holiday cards

Yesterday was stamp class with my ladies, hi, girls!  We missed you Elaine.  Here are two very quick but elegant holiday cards we made using Marianne Designs emboss and cut folders and Cheery Lynn Designs dies.

This uses Marianne's Classic cut and emboss folder along with Cheery Lynn Designs Ornamental Wreath and Bow.  The card base is Cryogen paper so it has a beautiful shimmer.  I added a red panel behind the front of the card and some Stickles to complete the card.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

This card uses Marianne's Romantic cut and emboss folder along with Cheery Lynn Designs Poinsettia 2 die.  I dry embossed the backs of the poinsettia to give it a curved look.  The embossed panel is gold mirror card which does not photograph well at all.  It is pretty impressive in real life.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.
