Christmas...A Little Late

I entered these cards in a contest that TAC hosts each month. They didn't win and I haven't uploaded them yet so even though Christmas is gone, I thought that I would go ahead and do it now. The sets that I used are "Holiday Magic" and "Simply Christmas". My goal was to use all non-Christmas paper to make Christmas cards.

The card above was my favorite! It uses paper from the Penelope paper pack. I also used the Kraft cardstock which is one of my paper crafting staples! I use this stuff ALL the time on cards and scrapbook pages, for tags, etc. I have never found another Kraft cardstock that I like better. It's wonderful and very high quality 80# cardstock!!

This reindeer card uses one of my favorite cardstock colors from the Hemingway collection. It's just such a beautiful blue/green! The patterned paper comes from the Hemingway paper pack. Not a traditional Christmas paper, but it works! I also pierced some holes around the patterned paper and image meet.

The card above used the Cha Cha paper collection & ribbon. Isn't that ribbon gorgeous? TAC has some of the prettiest ribbon! I also embossed each of the little square/rectangles with sparkle embossing powder and used pop dots to add dimension.
