Christmas Cards

I am going to my first cookie exchange tomorrow and I'm super exicted. I love the holiday season! I made 6 dozen cookies. The last card is the invite that I made for the CE. I punched out circles with my sizzix die and used a scallop circle punch to make it look like a bite was taken out of the cookie. I punched out dark brown circles with a hole punch and glued those on.

The first card is a Christmas card that I made for my Dad and stepmom. I copied the gingerbread house idea from the Paper Crafts Magazine November 07 edition. That is one of my favorite magazines! The idea is on pg 45. I made my own pattern since I have no way of enlarging the pattern. I used my NEW ;) fiskars scallop punch for the snow and I covered it with prisma glitter and glue. It really sparkles and looks so pretty! The glitter really sets it off!
We are getting super excited here. We are going on our first vacation in YEARS! We are going up North for a whole week and hopefully we will get to play in the snow! We are going to go see Niagra Falls one day. I really want to see it a night. Hopefully I'll have some fun pictures to share when we get back! Have a great weekend!
