Christmas Cards and gift tags

These are some Christmas cards I worked on this weekend. I bought the lovely digital image of the chandelier from Kaboodle doodles, it is called Pink and Black. It also comes with some lovely designer paper, not shown here. This is some of my card stock stash from DCWV. I printed the image onto the designer paper, then I cut and embossed it with my Spellbinders Labels 8 Nestabilities, the matching gift tags were cut and embossed with my Deckled Mega Rectangles Nestabilities. The green and red metallic foil card stock I used for the holly leaves was a find from last year at the Dollar store. I cut them with the Cricut Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. The leaves came out so nicely, I ran back on Sunday to see if I could grab some more. Luckily I was able to snatch up a few sheets, the green is now gone. I also bought some blue and red. Not sure yet what I will do with the blue, but I'm sure you will see it here when I do. I decided to try to be more creative in my photography, so I added the branch of berries to make it look more festive. I like the way it came out. I am also working with a homemade light box so I think my photo's are a bit brighter. Thanks for looking and thanks for all of your kind comments. I sincerely do appreciate it. ~Diane


  1. Hi Diane!
    Your cards and tags are very elegant. Super job.
    Hugs Marion

  2. Love your card and tags. I am in the Christmas Card making-mood too, but after making oodles for son and DIL, I put mine off for a week or so.
    Love your paper.

  3. Diane, these are beautiful, that chandelier is lovely and love the monochromatic look of it all, with those touches of accent. Hugs

  4. Diane, thank YOU for leaving such warmth on my blog. You are really incredibly sweet - your blog says it all. I love that you want to help people make wonderful creations and aren't afraid to share your gift! I also took time (finally) to read your blog awards; you are an absolute angel!

  5. Very pretty cards & tags Diane! I can't believe that chandelier is a digital image-it looks fantastic on your card! Don't you just love a bargain?! Very creative to place the sprigs in your photo shoot! Very festive look :) TFS

  6. This is pretty, I have seen this image, and didn't know quite what to do with it. Now that I see it on a card, I LOVE it! I like the matching tag as well!

    Hope you are having a fantastical day!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a sweet comment, they really make my day!
