Time-Saver Cards - Set 1


"With dogs and people, it's love in big splashy colors.  When you're involved with a cat, you're dealing in pastels."

Hi, Friends......

I am starting to feel the fatigue here during my all-night marathon of posting!!!  I am on post number 4 of 5.  But I am determined to get this done before I go to bed!!
 

These posts are part of the Linky party at Jennifer Grace's Frosty Festivities 2014.  It's only open for a few more hours, but I hadn't been able to craft much this week and so this was my all evening/all night crafting and posting extravaganza!  Hey, I live in Idaho.  It doesn't take much to get me excited!!!  Ha!



This warm little set of cards was inspired by the Time-Saving Cards post by Louise, one of Jennifer's guests during the Frosty Festivities.  I am using some other Echo Park collections this time:  This & That and Very Merry Christmas.



I Versamarked a snot  snor  snowflake (Yes, definitely getting tired!  I'm not making those typos up...I really did those very ones by accident!!!  Hahaha!) background onto kraft and heat embossed it with white.  Then I applied the stickers and embellishments.



I love the look of white on kraft, but rarely use it.  So glad I did on these!!!


These will go to the Caring Hearts Card Drive 2014, also.
The later it gets, the shorter the posts get!  
ONLY ONE MORE POST TO GO...............!!!!!!!!!

I am a big fan of kraft...so these are so appealing to me! The white embossing on the natural kraft really add interest while still allowing the embellishments to pop! Red, white and kraft....a wonderful rustic look! I can't believe you whipped up so many awesome cards!

Thanks so much, Karen!! I don't know why I don't use kraft more. It is such a versatile neutral but is esp perfect for holiday cards. Yah, I was really on a roll with these card sets. I wanted to get them done for that card drive!!
