Two more simple Christmas cards

As promised, here are the rest of the cards for my "Quick and Easy Christmas cards" class. These two cards feature stamps from The Cat's Pajamas.

First card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". There are two poinsettia stamps in this stamp set. I stamped the larger flower twice, once with green ink for the leafs and one more with the red ink. The flowers were cut out and layered with pop up dots. I put three red Dew Drops in the center. The square on the gold cardstock behind the poinsettia was embossed with Nestabilites. The greeting is from the same stamp set and it was stamped with red ink.

The second card measures 3 3/4" x 9" and it fits in the regular business style envelope. I embossed the dove with red embossing powder. I really like this one for Christmas, it has some sparkle in it. All three squares with the doves are raised on the pop up dots as well as the layer behind them. Green corners were punched out with the corner punch and I dotted on them with the Gold Zig painty. Inside of the card, I stamped the same dove image and the greeting is from the same stamp set.

This class is scheduled for:

Friday, November 14th, 11 am to 2:30 pm
Monday, November 17th, 2 pm to 5:30 pm

To sign up for the class please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151.

Your cards are both wonderful. Love that poinsettia with the dew drop center. The long card that fits into a business size envelope is awesome.
