A few last minute cards

I still had a few Christmas cards to make for Christmas day so I turned to Whipper Snapper Designs.  I used the adorable set from Anna Wight called Cozy Critters.  These sweet little critters were just perfect to whip up some quick cards.
All of the patterned paper is from the Jillibean Soup paper pad Christmas Eve Chowder.   Above I used a holly border punch from Martha Stewart, a flag die from Lil’ Inker Designs (0n all cards) and a Picot Edge Circle die and Classic Circles Large die from Spellbinders which I also used on the penguin card.
On both the dog and cat cards I used Labels Twenty Two from Spellbinders as well as the Classic Oval die. 
On all of the hats, some of which were stamped on another piece of paper and cut out after coloring and popped up on the image, I used Marvy Liquid Applique and glitter.   If you look close at the penguin card you can see that I used the Martha Stewart icicle border punch on Doodlebug glitter cardstock to add a border under the green strip.  It almost disappears since the color is so close to the background of the patterned paper…but click for a close up, it’s there!
The pine border bunch on the kitty card is also from Martha Stewart. 
All images are stamped on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored with Copic markers.  I shaded with Prismacolor pencils and oms.   I think I am done, whew!    See you tomorrow!
