I Couldn't Sleep at All Last Night...CARDS THAT CARE

I had so many things going through my head that I just decided to go downstairs and stamp for awhile... two hours, three cards for the "Cards that Care" project and two other cards later...
This just reminds me of how heavy the Christmas balls are and how they weigh down the branches. I embossed the ball with glitter and the cap on the ball is embossed with silver. I also stamped one extra branch out on card stock and popped it out on the card...I had to have a place to hang my decoration!

Oh, such an easy card. I made a strip of bird cages on my cuttlebug and trimmed it with a piece of real red ribbon. I stamped "Merry Christmas" and the two little birds that escaped with SU Real Red.

I used an embossing folder on the black card stock to get these great Christmas greetings on this card. Then I decided to use the brayer and the white pigment ink to bring out the words. They showed up a grayish light blue. I could have gone over it another time, but I liked how it looked. I added a die cut snow flake with a silver brad and another greeting.  

Personally, I think it's too early for Christmas (what happened to Thanksgiving?!) but the women running "Cards That Care" need them early and I figured it was for a good cause, so here they are!
