Christmas Tree and Happy Holidays

Two VERY clean and simple cards for Christmas:

The Christmas Tree -  using Snow Swirled from SU.  I heat embossed the tree in Silver and it's matted with Night of Navy.  The bow (navy, also) looks almost black in the photo.  The pearls were colored with Copics.


My second card is using a sentiment from CTMH and I've heat embossed it in gold.  I dry embossed the white panel with the Swirls embossing folder.  The woven type ribbon is actually some that I've had for several years that came off a Christmas package. 



What's the deal here......I'm not chatty at all!  Not to worry though, I'm sure I'll be back with my usual bull soon enough - like maybe for another Funny Friday (if I can get my act together by then)!

Thanks for stopping by..............

Both cards are so crisp amd clean! So elegant and perfect for Christmas. Love that red ribbon...my friends and family think I'm crazy when I save ribbons and trims from gifts. But why wouldn't you when you can use them again? Especially on a card as beautiful as this one! Have a great day! Hugs! :)
