Joyful Christmas

Hello & Happy Saturday!

Quick post this morning then out to run some errands!
I worked all week on taking down my Christmas decorations and then the adventure of packing up all the ceramic Christmas trees. That is no easy task as each one has to be wrapped in bubble wrap and carefully packed away in very large storage totes. My house seems bare now.
I left my usual 4 out for the year so I can continue to admire them!

Today I have one last set of Christmas cards to share that were a part of my customers 10 packs this year. These are pretty straight forward and quite easy except for the embossing.

I used an embossing powder that I got at a local stamp store (Stampede in York, PA.) years ago and sadly the store closed up maybe 7-8 years ago. I think it is made by Stampendous. It is a sparkly gold glittery embossing powder and it's even prettier than this last upclose picture. 
I tried to let the embossing do all the work on this one and also keep if flat for easy mailing!

Card Details:

Stamps: Joyful Christmas
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Versamark
Cardstock: Thick Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Heat Gun, Stampendous Embossing Powder, Gold Rhinestones, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Thankfully, with all the cards my customer orders, I never have to put an inside sentiment in them as she likes to write her own messages! 

My thoughts today....

Every single one! LOL

Tomorrow I will start the first 6 months of my Year in Review.
That's tough going thru and picking out my favorites!
Hope you will stop back and check them out Sunday & Monday!

That's all for now!
Thanks for stopping by & enjoy your weekend!

I don't envy you packing up all those pretty trees you put out every year, but it has to be done! I only have one to tend to and it requires so much care, so you must have been quite busy! The card is just gorgeous and oh how I wish I could find some Ranger Queen's gold embossing powder somewhere! It's my favorite gold ever and I only have a few sprinkles left of it. The gold poinsettia looks great on the red - what a pretty design for that set of cards!

Simple and elegant! The gold and red are classic.
