I love the champagne glitter paper from Stampin Up and had to make a few holiday cards with it. I made sure to use almost every scrap of it using both the positive and negative images of snowflakes I cut out.
It was hard to get a good picture of paper. It is almost a bronze color.
The smaller snowflakes on this card were cut out of the paper that the snowflake paper is mounted on.
The card has a secret, the paper moved when I was cutting it out so I ‘hid’ the incomplete portion of the snowflake behind another snowflake and the ribbon.
This card has lots of shine with a shimmery white paper behind the negative image from the snowflake die.
I thought the glittered snowflake and ribbon was all that was needed for a couple striking cards.
I loved the glitter paper with the Night of Navy cardstock.
These are just a few of the cards I was able to make with the glitter paper. I have about a dozen more cards made and will have to share a few more of them in a few days.
Have you been thinking of or making Christmas cards yet?
I’ve been busy making a lot of Christmas cards so I though I’d share a few of them with you today.
I had a sheet of glittered accents that made this card quick and easy.
I love the glittered edges of this tag.
Another quick and easy card with a glittered accent.
I love how just the Christmas and flourishes are glittered.
The pennant was a bit larger than my usual card size would allow so I made a few long cards that will fit in a letter size envelope.
These and other cards are headed to my Etsy store for card assortments. If you want to send handmade Christmas cards but don’t have time to make your own let me make an assortment just for you.

I noticed a few weeks ago that I was almost out of masculine birthday cards so I knew I needed to make a few to have on hand. Here are a few that I made with a masculine, vintage feel.
I took a few sets of masculine stamps and stamped them onto a few sheets of scrapbook paper.
I was able to make about two dozen cards with the papers I stamped up.
I don’t think any of the cards were the same layout although they were fairly similar.
Stamping your own background paper is an easy way to make a coordinating set of cards.
Gather your stamps, ink and papers in the colors you want and make yourself a set of cards or check out my Etsy store where these cards are heading.
