Can you tell that I’ve been busy? I have all of our Christmas cards made. This is the first time I’ve made our Christmas cards. Heck, this year I made my first cards ever and since I’m kinda busy trying to get ready for an impromptu visit to Missouri I thought I’d just show you these today.
I made three different cards, for a total of close to 60.
The trees are all iris-folded and have little rhinestone toppers, the snowflakes are embossed (my first attempt at embossing) and the last tree has little bead garland.

Here’s the card I made for Thanksgiving. It was actually fun. I used glaze on the leaves along with some glitter and tiny beads. After the glaze dried I popped the leaves in the freezer for about 10 minutes then cracked them to make veining.

And then the birthday cards:
You can find some instructions for Iris Folded cards here - (and some free patterns, I used this leaf pattern) it's the place I used when I first saw one and wanted to learn. They are really pretty simple.
