More Contempo Christmas Cards

Here are two more cards today using the Mystery Image Challenge Swap packet ingredients featuring images from the Contempo Christmas stamp set and the Jolly Holiday Designer Paper.  (see yesterdays' post for more details on the packet).

The Old Olive Scallop Square was run through the Big Shot with the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder to give it some great background texture behind the heat embossed Contempo Christmas ornament.  Two pattterns of the Jolly Holiday Designer Papers are used to bring color and pattern to the card.  Notice the Old Olive cardstock "rick-rack" right above the red polka-dot scallop; this was cut with the Tasteful Trims die and the Big Shot machine.  

This card features three of the "faux" cardstock buttons cut with the Sizzix die and the Big Shot.  I threaded them onto Vanilla 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon and placed them down the right side of the cardfront.   The greeting was punched out with the Modern Label Punch and layered onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  Again, Jolly Holiday Designer Paper was used on the background and scalloped trim and Old Olive cardstock "rick-rack" accents the scallop trim.
The heat embossed Christmas tree was cut out, the edges sponged with Cherry Cobbler ink, yellow added with a Daffodil Delight Marker, and then adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added some of our beautiful self-adhesive Pearls to the tree for emphasis.

Two more adorable cards Margaret, love what you did with those buttons and sponging the edges of the tree gives it a layered look.
