Quick but stunning Cards for Christmas

If you still have a lot of cards to make (gentle reminder: only 17 sleeps til Christmas), choose a simple design with a feature that makes it special: in the first card it is embossing (using the Big Shot), in the second a wide luscious ribbon.

This is a full reveal of two of my recent Stamp-a-Stack Cards. I am really pleased with how they turned out. The first one uses a Whisper White, Real Red with a touch of Old Olive colour scheme. I also used Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder, 5 petal punch, Real Red Ink, Stampin' Up gems and the sentiment is from Season of Joy.

The second card goes together so quickly: great for mass production. Colour scheme is Ridinghood Red, Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla. The feature is the stunning ribbon: this was the Ridinghood Red ribbon from the recent Dress Up Christmas promotion, but I have also used the current catalogue Real Red 1 1/4 inch striped grosgrain (with Old Olive and Whisper White) to equally good effect. The So Swirly wheel across the bottom, and the stamped sentiment from Curly Cute and a mat and another card is complete.
