Christmas Lane Leftovers!

It's the holiday season - everyone likes leftovers, right? HA!
Me too, just not too much turkey, please!

Well, my Christmas Lane Scrapbook project had lots of leftovers - including 4 pieces of 6" x 6" cardstock that were just begging to be made into cards. When my cardstock begs, I just have to answer - don't you??
This size card will fit nicely into our Small Open End Envelopes.

Here's the Early Espresso one:

I love the reindeer stamp from the Winter Post stamp set. He looks so cute stamped in a row, walking across a page or card. Here I just stamped him in Early Espresso and added some Sticky Die Cuts and an Old Olive Button with some Baker's Twine. Simple!

My reindeer friend appears again on the Lucky Limeade cardstock:

I stamped the Dear Santa A La' Carte stamp with Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White and punched it out with the 2 3/8" Scalloped Circle Punch. Using more white scrap, I stamped the reindeer again and added the snowflake from Winter Post in Cherry Cobbler. It's punched out with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch and adhered to the punched scallop. The Sticky Die Cut border was glittered up with Dazzling Diamonds and my 2 Way Glue Pen. I even added some glitter to the scallop punch out before adding the Cherry Cobbler ribbon knot. The background of this card was done with the fun Dec. 25th image from Winter Post in Lucky Limeade Classic Ink.

More glitter on the Cherry Cobbler cardstock:

The background was stamped with the snowflake again in Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink then I added a Sticky Die Cut striped border that I'd glittered up. The cuff of the stocking was coated in glitter as well, then I added a Mini Jingle Bell with some Baker's Twine to finish it off.

Ok, last but not least, the Soft Suede cardstock:

The center of this Sticky Die Cut "ornament" had two Stampin' Dimensionals added to it and before I removed the backing, I added some baby powder to nullify the stickiness on the die cut. I was able to pop it up above the ring for some dimension that way. A piece of Sticky Rik Rak makes the hanging string and I simply added a Lucky Limeade Ruffled Taffeta Ribbon bow and a Cherry Cobbler button with more Baker's Twine.

For an inside panel on each of these cards, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 2 3/4" x 5 3/4". It fits nicely inside and you can stamp your greeting easily along with some images from Winter Post to jazz it up.

Happy Saturday everyone! We have a busy day here in Stamford, CT getting ready for Emma's competition tomorrow. She has off-ice with her team this afternoon and an early curfew since we have to be at the rink at 6 AM on Sunday!! Uggh! I think the girls on the team will fare better than the parents......
But anyway - Go National Blades!!! :)

Blessings,
