Last Minute Christmas Cards and Postcards

For my Christmas cards/postcards, I used Amy Tangerine’s postcard stamp and Sunny Studios Holiday Style stamp sets.

I used Stampin’ Up inks Old Olive, Pear Pizazz and a couple of Crayola markers in different greens on the limb and then used a a brown marker to highlight the branch on the tree limb.  I used a Hero Arts Soft Granite ink on the first layer of the bell.  The second layer of the bell I used a Memento Dew Drop called  London Fog and the last layer I used Versafine Onyx Black Ink.  On the sentiment from Penny Black called the Wonder, I used Cherry Cobbler ink from Stampin’ Up.
On the postcards, that were 5 1/2′ x 4 1/4″ high, I used silver gel ink to connect my bell to the branch.  On the cards, I cut my postcard down to 5 1/4″ x 4″ and used silver thread and used a pokey tool and punched a hole by the branch and on the top of the bell and using a needle, ran the thread through both holes and then tied a bow at the bell.  I then used tape runner to connect the top piece to a red layer that was 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″.  I used green glitter washi on the envelopes for the cards.
I really liked how my cards came out and hope you do as well.
