This is a card I made for my SCS Wish-RAK Letters to Santa Secret Exchange. The person receiving it along with a box of goodies is a secret until Saturday. All items used to make the card are SU unless noted otherwise. The card base is Soft Suede, layered with Cherry Cobbler and then a piece of Deck the Halls DSP. I gold embossed the sentiment (Bells and Boughs set) on a oval punched (Marvy punches) piece of Cherry Cobbler and then layered that onto a oval scallop punched piece of Soft Suede. I then used a gold Krylon pen on the edges of the scalloped oval. I meant to add a piece of Very Vanilla satin ribbon but I had adhered the pieces done before I remembered. Oh well. Maybe next time. My sister's birthday is Saturday, so I will be posting her card tomorrow.

I haven't posted in a long time. My father's birthday was November 16, so I am posting the card that I made for him. I used one of my favorite SU sets, Lovely as a Tree. For the base of the card, I used Old Olive card stock. I layered that with a piece of Crumb Cake stamped with Old Olive and Chocolate Chip with the weeds stamp from the Inspired by Nature set. I then used a strip of Old Olive DSP layered onto a piece of Chocolate Chip. The main image is from the Lovely as a Tree set layered onto a piece of Chocolate Chip. I stamped the tree with Chocolate Chip and then colored the leaves with my Certainly Celery marker.
