Christmas Cards

I used inspiration from Tim Holtz blog
to create these two Christmas cards.

For the snowman I used the stamp from
Stampers Anonymous 'Christmas Blueprint' set.

For the poinsettia I used the Sizzix/Alterations
Bigz Die 'Tattered Poinsettia' and
Sizzix 'Corners, Flourish #2'

I also made this one in a similar style.
I first die cut from mountboard the 
'Toy Soldier'
Sizzix/Alterations Bigz Die,
then stamped the toy soldier onto it from
the Stampers Anonymous 
'Christmas Blueprint' set.
The rubber stamp is slightly smaller than
the die cut shape, but it was much easier doing it
that way than having to cut around the rubber stamped image.

I think the Toy Soldier is my (latest) favourite
and I'll do another posting using it shortly.

Thanks for looking in at this very busy time :)

I just finished Tim's tags as well! Love these tags!! I think the poinsettia is a favorite of mine and I was not going to buy it! The Toy Soldier is so darn cute and I love how you used him! He is going on my next card for the hubby! Have a great day!

Hi Sherry, just love these cards, especially the toy soldier. Thank you for my gorgeous soldier card and pressy (saved for the day), yours is on it's way. I sent them separately from the card (different shape)

I love your cards, Sherry! The snowman jumped out at me and then I scrolled down and saw the one with the soldier - I can see why it's your favourite!

That toy soldier looks like you whittled it out of wood. Perfect for a whimsical tag!
