More Christmas cards and Kreativ Blogger Award

Hi everyone,
It's been a while since my last post, but I was busy, busy, busy making these cuties for Christmas!
These two cards measure 4 1/4"x 6". For the first one I used layers of fabric mounted on cardstock. The image is stamped on fabric and painted with Copic markers. For the second I used stamps, inks, punches and buttons.

And here are some details:

Next, I made a Christmas planner( 3 1/8"x 6 1/2" folded and 12 3/4"x 6 1/2" when open) and a gift card holder( 3"x 4 1/4"). For both I used cardstock, stamps, inks, patterned paper, rhinestones and pearls and glitter.

Here you can see some details:

I know it's a long post today, but I also received few days ago another wonderful award, the Kreativ Blogger, from Lynda at http://butterflydream27.blogspot.com/.
