Church Craft Fair Christmas Card Sets

Good morning everyone...I guess it's morning...it's almost 1:00 AM and I'm still up trying to finish my Christmas card sets for the church craft fair this Saturday...yikes, it's tomorrow!!!  What a crazy week....my cousin and his wife are here visiting from Iowa, my DGD's birthday was yesterday, and I am knee deep in Christmas cards...LOL!!! Oh well, I can sleep Saturday night!
This card features stamps from Papertrey Ink...the ornament was cutout, colored with copics, covered with glitter, and popped up with pop dots.
The Rubbernecker tree image was embossed with white ep and the bird was popped up with a pop dot. The sentiment is also from Rubbernecker.
The ornament stamps are from a Basic Grey set called Ornaments and the sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamp's Complements of the Season set. Colors used include Pool Party, Kiwi Kiss, and Cherry Cobler.

I had some left over stickers from another project and just couldn't let them go to waste...
The stamp in the background is from Stampin Up's Beautiful Season set..it was stamped with True Thyme onto River Rock cardstock. Real Red cardstock is used for the matting and the button and twine finish it off.
The background was embossed and an oval scalloped Nestabilities was used to matt the sticker.
Group #3.....
An old but favorite PBX stamp was used for this vintage style Christmas card and the sentiment is from PTI....flocked paper adds a little glam and the silver pearls finish it off.
I used an old retired plaid background stamp from Stampin Up! to make the background and the pine cone
stamp is from Penny Black. Handsome Hunter and Vivid's Tuscan Tan inks were used and the gingham ribbon and cotton lace add a country flair.

Last but not least is a Penny Black Santa stamped with Night of Navy onto Bashful Blue...glitter was added to the beard and fur and the punched showflakes and silver balls are the finishing touches. 

Now, I just have to wrap each set with a ribbon and get them to the sale along with the other cards I made from my friend Sue's pictures. I will show you more of those this weekend.  Ok...now it's time for this old grandma to get to bed...have a great day!!!

They are all so beautiful but my very favorite is the black, white and red one from the rubbernecker set, the trees. I've got to go order that set and the cardinal...so gorgeous.
