Candy said...

Robin,
What a beautiful cut out! I am so impressed that you made your own decorative paper with all the gorgeous "
christmas " stamps.
I wish you a very Merry Christmas.

TRK said...

Really liked the sentiments on the stamps used for the inside greetings, the background paper created from stamps, and both trees were stylish...the die cut one especially.

barbara macaskill said...

Both of these cards are so pretty! LOVE the embossing and coloring on the first one and the second is so fun and festive!! LOVE the whimsical tree and the sentiment is perfect!! It would make a great home décor piece to remind people that they are in a happy place and to leave the grumpiness at the door! LOL Thank you for sharing these pretty cards with me!

Love the first card. The background on the second card is too busy for me because it makes it hard to see the lovely tree.I am sure others will love it. I really like that both your cards are simple to make.

Judy said...

Beautiful cards and the sentiments for both are wonderful. I love the way you made the first card, so unique. Thanks for sharing.

Sue D said...

Beautiful cards. My fave is the first one.

peaches234 said...

Elegant diecut tree. Can you give a tip as to how to adhere intricate cuts? Thank-you.

Robyn said...

Yes. I use a mono adhesive with a very fine applicator tip, and let the glue dry for a minute before you flip it over as this will make it less messy. You can also use a glue pen, tho I don't find these dry as well.
If you son't mind the mess, you can put a dab of glue on your finger and rub it on- that works really well- just messy. You can also use a dry fine brush or micro brush. Hope this helps- maybe I'll do a video if Santa brings me a new camera boom or a camera man!

grammypat said...

Love the front of your card -- great thought And also the verse inside, Thx

Unknown said...

The die-cut tree is great and would be so fast to make for the cards.
