Autumn & Christmas in the same post

Well, before I have lots of friends over for a get together I wanted to make and post a couple of cards!!

Here is the first card –


To make this card I used a classic SU! set called Fantastic Foliage – it always makes me think of Autumn!! I tried to rock n roll the leaves – some turned out better than others!! I embossed the edges of my cardstock, the word grateful and the cute, little acorn up in the corner on that mini banner in gold!! Vellum scraps were used and I covered the glue on the vellum with the sequins!!!

This Autumn card is linking up to:

This is the sketch that I followed for my card design!

And for the second card I made – A square Christmas card with 2 snowmen:


This card is 4″ by 4″ on kraft cardstock – I used an old SU! Christmas set to stamp the 2 snowmen! Embossed the greeting in white on a scrap of red vellum!! Tried to watercolor but I forgot to stamp the image on watercolor paper so it did not go so well!! Anyways – I think it turned out ok – what do you think?? Is it too early for these kind of cards??

Linking my Christmas creation up to the following:

    I too am in the process of making autumn/thanksgiving and halloween cards. It’s great to have some ready to go when you need them. I love the gold embossing on your autumn card. It’s so pretty! Your Christmas card is so fun and cheery! The snowmen are adorable! I think that you did a great job watercoloring!!! Love the use of vellum strips on both cards.

    Especially like the embossing & use of vellum on the Autumn card. Always a great idea to cover the glue with sequins, gems or other such embellishments.
