These are great cards.  I'm loving the squirrel.  nikkirog, your pile of paper scraps is priceless--my dad used to get mad at me for leaving paper "schnibbles" around after paper projects.

I discovered that with a few modifications, the sewn-on trees that I made the Xmas cards with can be made to look like tall layer cakes.  I had some pink, brown and cream grosgrain ribbons that I made some birthday cake cards with (one to give my friend when we go out for desert this week to celebrate our birthdays...).  I think I'm addicted!

I've been making holiday cards for years but never actually getting around to mailing them. So this year I have plenty and just have to fill 'em out and mail them. There all very diferent so here are a few of my faves. Get ready for lots of pics of lousy crappy camera quality.........



I attached the vellum message with a couple tiny holes from an itty bitty hole punch and some light blue thread.

 
You can't see the coolness of this card in a photo. The cardstock has a little silver glitter in it & the stocking is made from white felt & dark red suede cloth.


This snowman stamp is one of my all time favorite stamps. I lightly shade around the edges with colored pencils.


Another one of my fave stamps. Added a little gold rick rack for pizazz.

Like I said, they're all very different so to post pics of them all would be silly. So these are my faves.

nice!  i like the snowman card the best, but i love the way you used the gold ric-rac for the corners on the bottom one. 

i know what you mean about getting around to mailing them!  if i could just put a stamp on them, that would be one thing...but i know that some of mine are oversize (too thick, because of the embellishments) and overweight, so that means actually going to the post office...
