Three more for the stack

Hello -

I did not manage my Christmas card making. I had hoped to be done by now...but I've only got half of them done. Another 30 to go. 

I was inspired by Christmas Kickstart Challenge for these cards.  I was also quite thrilled to have received a free Simon Says Stamp set for their annual stamp fest Stamptember.  The set is Inside Christmas Greetings - but I am rebelling and using them on the outside!

The challenge prompt is to Get a Head-er Start, and be inspired by the blog header :


I love those colors, the gold silver read and teal.  I went with hanging ornaments and a statement sentiment for my cards...yes more than one.  I had fun playing and all three were inspired by this header.

First off  Teal and Gold embossing :

Next Red with Silver embossing:

Lastly, some pearl embossing over Red, Teal, and Black stamping. Thank goodness for the misti - allowed dye inking and versamark inking on top for the embossing powder.

And just so I don't clutter up the challenge gallery, I am submitting them all together.

 Thanks so much for stopping's your stash of Christmas cards coming along?
