Graphic 45 St. Nicholas Cards


I've been making some holiday cards, tags and envelopes with 
Graphic 45's St. Nicholas papers and embellishments.
The tag above was die cut with Bo Bunny's tag die and the tree is
Yvonne Creations Snowy Trees die.  I
 snuck in one of Tim Holtz's Jingle Brads. So cute!


This one is an A-2 and I used the matching chipboard and some 
Wild Orchid Flowers.  The tree charm in the corner is from Maya Road.


This one is an A-2 as well.  The deer and the trim is from Maya Road.


I used the Herringbone technique shown on Splitcoast Stampers
for this background.
The Merry Christmas die is from Impression Obsession 
and the tree is Yvonne Creations.


The stamp inside is from Impression Obsession too.
The deer is from the IO Merry Christmas die.


Tags and Pockets from the St. Nicholas line are featured on this 
A-2 card.  The deer is Maya Road.
I inked all the edges with a Cat's Eye Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink Pad.

All the papers are either the 12x12 or 6x6 from Graphic 45 and are 
available at Impressive Ideas in Norcross, Ga.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

MERRY card


Lately I've been playing with Carta Bella's Christmas Delivery papers.
For my background, I put their cute washi tape diagonally on a
piece of white card stock.  Then, I die cut it with a stitched rectangle
die.  Looks like paper doesn't it?


Inside I layered more paper and added a die cut.  
Finished size is an A-2.

Have a great week!
