Christmas Showcase

Need some last minute inspiration for Christmas cards? I've used a few great images in different ways to showcase their versatility. Here are a few of my favorite DRS Designs holiday cards for this mailing season:

Stamps by DRS Designs: Santa Handmade for Christmas F133, Four Stages of Christmas G129, Easy Dot Background H628. Cardstock: Soft Sky, Old Olive, Real Red, GP110 whit, Doodlebug glitter white. Ink: Memento Black, Real Red, Old Olive. Accessories: gingham ribbon, Martha Stewart snowflake punches, Circle and rectangle Nestabilities, white flocking.

This Santa image is actually a portion of a 'Handmade by' stamp, masked off to showcase the jolly old fellow. I added flocking to make his beard and hat trim touchably soft:

The next card's focal point is a combination of a mailing label (trees) and sentiment:

Stamps by DRS Designs: Winter Trees Address Label Frame H106, Serve our country at Christmas D530. Cardstock: Night of Navy, Real Red, GP110 white, Doodlebug glitter. Ink: Always Artichoke, Night of Navy. Accessories: Stardust glitter pen, red dotted organdy, circle and rectangle Nestabilites.

For this sweet Christmas mouse, I used the Large Open Plaid on a diagonal for a candy cane effect:

Stamps by DRS Designs: Candy Cane Christmas Critter E134, Holly Giga Circle L120, Merry Christmas Arc E102, Large Original Plaid P641. Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Real Red, GP110 white. Ink: Memento, Copics, Real Red, Certainly Celery. Accessories: Giga circle punch, SU scallop border punch, red glitter pen.

Happy Holidays!!
