Christmas Cards - Card Three Using Pear and Partridge Card Making Kit

Hi to all my wonderful blogging/crafting friends.  I hope everyone is having a great holiday!!  The weather has cooled down here in Southern CA and we have been having rain.  Don't believe anyone that says "it never rains in Southern CA" because it does.  Although, I lived here for almost a year before we had rain.  I actually missed it.  LOL.  You don't realize how great someone/something is until it is gone.  So true.  
I know Christmas is almost over.  Today is Christmas; so I have a couple more hours to post these cards and still not be late.  LOL!!  I finished my last set of Christmas cards last week.  These are from the CTMH Workshop On The Go Pear & Partridge Cardmaking kit.  You might want to purchase one of these card sets and get an early start on your Christmas cards for next year. 

My father-in-law passed away in November; so we had a house full of guests.  I wasn't able to create for a couple weeks.  This is the third set of 5 - the kit includes everything to make 15 cards including the card base and envelopes.  This was my first year to make Christmas cards; but I needed more than 15; so a lot of people got store bought cards.  It was hard for me to give store bought cards.
I like to do something a little different with my cards; so they aren't all the same.  I used different ribbons to create a little different look.  I hope you enjoy this last set of Christmas cards.  I didn't want to leave you hanging wondering what the last set looked like.

I made these cards using different ribbons and placing the bling in different areas on the cards.

2 – Pear & Partridge B&T Duos® Papers
4 – Cardstock Sheets (Cranberry, Colonial White, 2 Cocoa)
15 – Colonial White Cards & Envelopes
1 – Red Glitter Gems (108 pieces)
1 – Tan Twill Ribbon (5 yards)

Some basic tools you may already have, such as inks, stamp blocks, or tools are needed to complete this project.
Additional supplies used for these cards are:
American Crafts ribbon (Tree and dots)
I am entering these cards in the following challenges:
I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas.  I was able to see my daughters children through Facetime today.  It was such a joy to share some time with them across the miles and actually see them.  I am so enjoying my new iPhone.  It is the best gift my husband could have gotten me for Christmas.  My two best purchases I have ever made is my Cricut last year for Christmas and my iPhone. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Only a few more days in December to get the Stamp of the Month for only $5 with a $50 purchase.  Also, I am offering free shipping for the month of December. 

Have a wonderful day and enjoy your family! 

Remember - Keep On Creating!!
 It's Good For Your Health!!
