Two more "A Very Merry Christmas" cards

I have two more cards I made for Theresa using her "A Very Merry Christmas" stamp set I thought I would post today.  Both cards were very quick and easy to make.






This is another card made using the tutorial I made below "A Cuttlebug/Nestability embossed frame".  This time I used the Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder.  These bells were stamped with Black Memento ink and colored with Copic markers.  I used a glitter pen to go over the embossed snowflakes then added some punched snowflakes that have dazzeling diamonds glitter added.  I used a glue pen to cover each flake with glue then dipped them into the glitter.  They were placed randomly around the bells.  Super fine glitter was added to the ribbon and bells.  All the glitz does not show up in the photo.  The embossed piece is attached to a piece of green CS.







The holly was gold embossed in the upper left corner.  Originally I was going to make a one layer card with the Labels Five Nestability embossed in the middle.  I didn't  like it so decided to cut out another label and mount it, with dimensionals,  over the original one.  The verse was also gold embossed and a gold leaf pen used to go around the outside edge to make it stand out.  A piece of gold cord was added to the bottom.  Red rhinestones and a gold bow added to compelte the card.  It is mounted on  a piece of brushed gold CS.

They are both so lovely, Selma. I have just started using a Sharpie gold metallic paint pen for my edges. I like it.

I love both cards and can't decide which one I like best. I do have a question for you though! This is the second card I have seen with the "gold cording". Please tell where you can get this. It is so beautiful and really adds to the loveliness of your cards. Thanks.

Stunning Selma - I use that a lot with your cards don't I? Sorry I've not been commenting - I've been trying to catch up with all my blogs on Google Reader on my iPhone which does NOT lend itself well to commenting but I am a-watching you girly! Love these as usual.
