It's beginning to FEEL a lot like winter!

Brrr....the mornings are sure chilly around here lately...so, I decided to make a couple more Christmas cards! And, since it's Thursday, you guessed it, I'm creating cards with digital images from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. This week I've used the penguin from the "Cool Yule" set and a "Christmas Bingo Card" for one card, and a cupcake topper from the "Christmas Cupcake Wrappers" set for the other. I also got a two new Cuttlebug Embossing Folders and thought I'd take one of them for a spin too.
The first card is a 6x6 card using the cool penguin stamp. I colored him with my bic mark its and added some stickles to the hat. I printed out the Jolly bingo card and added a snowflake brad to the center and "hung" it on the card like a calendar with a couple of brads. I punched a border for the top and bottom and used DCWV patterned paper for the background.

The second card is A-2 size, made with a dark green card stock base and a piece of red coordinations paper for the front. I ran the paper through the cuttlebug and sanded off the embossed areas. I added Distress Stickles to the snowflakes and a star brad in the word Joy. I colored the leaves with my bics and filled in the dove with more Distress Stickles.

Since these were both simple cards, I decided to make matching envelopes for both of them. They were made with templates I borrowed from Cindi (thanks, Cindi!) and more DCWV paper.


I'm sure Lindsay will have an awesome project and some freebies on her blog Thefrugalcrafter's Weblog. Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's Blogs to see what they have created this week, and be sure to leave them some love! It is always very much appreciated. Happy Digi Stamping Everyone!
