2011 Holiday Cards- Project 15 & 16!!!

Hello Everyone!!!
Its been a while .... got so busy with all the household work. Now as the holidays are more closer I'm trying to make CAS batch of holiday cards !
Just got some lovely papers from Two Peas in a Bucket...  
I used Authentique~ Wonder collection papers for the first batch of cards..

The border sheet paper was so pretty  I just trimmed it to individual stripes , used some border punches and randomly adhered them to the card. The faux stitching stamps are from There She Goes - Institches stamp set....its a super easy way to add stitched effects!

I stamped the bckground with some Inkadinkado snowflake stamps. The sentiment is from Verve stamps!
The gorgeous snowflake die cut is from Spellbinders..love it!!
Also added lots of Diamond Stickles...its very sparkly and pretty upclose, photos are not so great :(

This cards are for the following challenges..
Crazy 4 Challenges: Card or Project with some sort of snow.

Cards und More : snowflakes.
Make it Monday with Kraft Outlet : Cristmas Card + Kraft cardstock.
Stamps R Us : Emboss it.

Next one  is one of favorite cards...
As I mentioned earlier the photo is doing right justice to the card. I wish you could see it in really ...fabulous colors and very sparkly.
Its very simple card...made with only patterned paper , sentiment stamp and stickles!!
The gorgeous patterned paper is from Fancy Pants~ Saint Nick collection. Love this collection...fab colors and lots patterns that can used a focal point of the card.
 The sentiment and stitch stamps are from There She Goes stamp.
