Christmas Cards & Tags with Shell - Part 1

Hi there,

I have been creating Christmas cards and tags using some of the leftover products from making the Advent Calendar. 

In the Kaisercraft Wood Flourishes Pack  - Peace, there are 4 wooden embellishments - I used the word Peace on the Advent Calendar and here are the cards using the other 3 embellishments...

I had plenty of paper leftover from the Echo Park Tis the Season 6x6 paper pad - so I have used this paper for the background on all three cards.

The word Hope is coloured black with an inkpad and then I applied Glossy Accents to give it a shiny finish.  I mounted the Echo Park Paper onto Red Cardstock and then attached to a White card base.  Black Rhinestones attached to all 4 corners completed the card. (Note how I placed the word Hope so that the letter O is over Santa's Face hehe cute huh!)

I coloured the Holly Leaves with a Dark Green Marker and the Berries with a Red Marker. I then applied Ranger Stickles Patina to the Leaves and Ranger Stickles Fruit Punch to the Berries. The words are from a Stampin' Up set and I black embossed these.  With a Black Marker I drew a frame near the edges of the card to create a Border.  I then attached it to a Red Card Base and placed Red and Green Rhinestones to finish.

I used Distress Paint - Tarnished Brass to colour the Leaves on this Holly and Adirondack Paint Dabber - Red Pepper to colour the Berries.   I then applied Glossy Accents and Glitter to the Berries.  The word is from a Stampin' Up set and I black embossed this one also.  Added faux stitching with a black marker around the border of the card and added rhinestones in the top corner. For this card I chose a White Card Base.
I applied all of the Wood flourishes to the card fronts with a craft glue - very easy.
