Christmas CASE - #2

A couple of weeks back I landed over at my friend's place with the soul intention of making Christmas Cards. I would like the record to reflect that I made 6 and she got 1 done, but in her defence, she did make a lot of owls too!!!

I think I am a SUCKER for Christmas stamp sets, due to the fact that when I packed up my stamps to go to her place, I actually had to leave SOME behind. One set I did take was "Tags Til Christmas". I got the inspiration for my card from this one on SCS.

Now still feeding my overwhelming desire to have no 2 cards the same, these are similar in very subtle ways.

The original card I found a bit plain, so I dry embossed the tops of the cards for a small bit of interest.

and also used the border punches to flair things up a bit....

The best thing about this card is that it went up very quickly, thus easy to mass produce of so desired.

Thanks for popping by again.

Stuff used:
CS: (SU) Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Jolly Holiday DSP (ret)
Ink: (SU) Old Olive
Stamps: (SU) Tags 'Til Christmas
Punches: (SU) Decorative Label Punch, Scallop Trim Border, Pinking Hearts Border
Other Bits: Cuttlebug "Just My Type" embossing borders, Dimensionals
