Evensong Christmas easel cards

I hosted my first scrapbook weekend in Canmore last weekend and actually managed to get some work done! I made these special order cards for a colleague at work. She has two relatives who are born on Christmas day so she likes to order "happy birthday" Christmas cards as she can never find them in the stores. She also picked traditional Christmas colors so I pulled out my Close To My Heart Evensong paperpack to make all these cards and coordinating ribbon/embellishments. The paper flowers are from my local craft store and Wild Orchid Crafts.

The first two cards are made with Magnolia stamps from the 2011 Sweet Christmas collection. The houses and Holly arrangement are from Stamping Bella. The final card (which totally reminds me of Holly Hobby from the 70's) is a Sarah Kay stamp.

Happy Birthday Mom!

My mom is one of my biggest fans of my cards so each year I like to make hers extra special. I purchased this stamp which is from Loralie Designs and I loved it as it was totally different than all my other stamps. I love this paper from Bo-Bunney that I recently picked up. I purchased the feathers from my local craft store and this is the first time I have used them on a card. I love adding different textures to cards for interest.

Thanks for looking!
