Merry Trimmings of Christmas - Day 8 & 9

Well I am back with more cards, and if you have been following along, you know the stamping is all from the Merry Trimmings stamp set.

It's been a few weeks since my last post, I battled one of the worst sinus infections of my life, then my little's seemed to become ill one right after another. With 4 of them, this felt like we would all remain ill for months. With that, lets move along to the cute cards I have for you all today.

Card# 1 Stack of presents.

This card took no time at all.

The base layer is Gold foil cardstock, cut at 4.25*5.5 topped with fern cardstock cut at 4*5.25 (if I were to create this again, i'd pick a different layer color - it blends in with the gold to much) The present were stamped in sugar plum ink (Color of the year) as one solid 3*5.5 piece. This piece was then cut down into three presents. and trimmed with Black Glitter cardstock at .5*2.75, .5*2.5, & .5*2 
The tag is stamped in black exclusive ink in Merry Christmas (mini stamp). Finish off the presents, black gold ribbon was wrapped around and then a bow tied on top!

Super cute right!? Okay now on to Day 9!
This card was something I had in my head for while to make. I was so happy that it turned out exactly how I pictured it would!

The out line of the snowman was created with three thincut basic circles. small, med and large. The top hat is simple, just a 1.25 x 1.25 square, with a silver of a piece to create the brim! Same for the scarf, just used some small scraps, rounded the edges and boom. To finish off the snowman, I add three gold pearl dots. 

As always I make my cards LIVE on my facebook page, then transfer them to my youtube. So take a peek and check out both cards as they are made! :)
