Holiday Medallions Card

This simple holiday card was made using a Anna Griffin Cuttlebug folder using Holiday Medallions. After running a cream colored card through the Cuttlebug with the embossing folder I colored the top by rubbing Distress Ink Festive Berries Ink across the top.

Quick Cards Using Embossing Folders

Both of these quick cards were made with the same Anna Griffin Poinsettia and Holly embossing folder.  
 1.  This simple but graceful card is embossed and then glitter is added to the raised areas with a Stella Wink Brush in Clear.  The antique white card stock adds elegance to this simple design.

2. This card was made red card stock with a white core using the same embossing folder.  I then sanded the raised areas.

Another Super Quick Card

This was a super quick card for the holidays made with PSX stamp I found at the flea market and accented with glitter from a Stella Wink Clear Brush and Copic Markers.  The edges were distressed with a worn Versacolor cube in Pinecone.

Three Holiday Cards

I made three cards today for the holidays.  The first two cards uses a tree PSX stamp and one word stamp by Danelle Johnson.
 This card uses a Anna Griffin Snowfall embossing folder and a Martha Stewart edge punch set.  I lightly inked the raised embossing with Festive Berries and Iced Spruce.  The tree image is stamped with Distress Ink with Iced Spruce. The words are stamped with Jet Black Archival Ink.
 I used Archival Inks for this one.  I love how the kraft paper absorbed the ink and caused some spread.  I inked the edges with worn Versacolor Pinecone cube.
For this one I used the same embossing folder as the first card on white card stock and accented with Stella Winks Brush in Clear.

Four One Minute Holiday Cards, One Anna Griffin Embossing Folder

Today I made some quick holiday cards using the same embossing folder from Cricut Cuttlebug Anna Griffin called Festive Stripe.  These were all super quick with just a few steps.  I scanned them so some of the details were lost.
1. This was made with paper with a white core.  After running it through the Cuttlebug I sanded away the raised areas.
 2. This card was made by running a red paper with a white core through the Cuttlebug and sanding it.  Then glue the paper to a cream colored card.  Ink edges with Distress Ink in Festive Berries.
 3. This one is very basic.  Emboss a cream card and then use Wink of Stella Clear Brush to add glitter accents.
 4.  This is a kraft paper card embossed with the Anna Griffin folder.  Color by taking the Festive Berries Distress Ink pad and rubbing it directly onto the raised part of the image.  I purposely got some of the red on the debosed area in places to give it a distressed look.
