Tattered Florals

Here's a very simple card set I made for a friend as a Christmas gift using Tim Holtz's Tattered Floral Die.
 The flowers and hand cut leaves are all embossed with the Script Embossing Folder.
I added clear glitter to top layer (there are four) of each flower.
The embossing is inked to add more dimension.
The flower centers contain the sentiments. 
A doily and pattered piece of paper complete the card.
I stamped a Scripture (on coordinating paper) inside each card.

Snow Scene

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday at home with my parents and now it's home again and getting ready for Christmas!
Here's a snow scene I made using the Loads of Love (Stampin' Up set) and a deer from a Martha Stewart set. The dimensional snow is my snow writer with glitter over it.
I'm stamping the same sentiment inside all of my Christmas cards this year (in coordinating colors).
(I used two different Inkadinkado sets to make this.)
