Two new cards

I actually got two cards finished this weekend. I didn't study much and spent most of my weekend playing and crafting. But I'm thrilled with the stack of cards I have available to send to my friends.

The pictures don't do justice to the cards, I'm afraid. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to photograph my cards. I'm also struggling with the blog's layout today.

 The card on the left uses a stamp from Penny Black. I don't remember where I got the metallic red paper, and I believe the ribbon is Karen Foster.

The card on the right uses cardstock from DCWV, and a tree from Jolee's.

I finally finished another card! It's only been a few weeks since my last one :)

This one features Unwrapped Tilda on the inside (below) and Tilda with Gifts on the outside (the out-of-focus card on the right). Both are stamped on Cryogen paper, and colored with a combination of Copics and Smooch Ink. The dp comes from The Paper Studio's Christmas collection.

I expect I'll have to custom-make the envelope, which will be a new task for me. The card is a 6-by-6. I keep finding flaws to it :( but I know I'm my toughest critic. I would appreciate any comments or advice!
