My 2011 Christmas Cards

Well, i did it!  I finally finished my Christmas cards and they're all ready to be mailed out tomorrow.  Hopefully everyone will get theirs before the big day :-P

I wish to share with you my favorite, and the special cards that i made for my nieces.

I always try to make fun cards for Ella & Daphne and this year, i brainstormed for a while before i came up with these:

I popped up the stockings with foam dots so i could slip the candy canes in.  As always, all the stitching was made by hand and i used the Cuttlebug to emboss the background cardstock. Hopefully they'll enjoy!

And now, on to my favorite Christmas card of 2011...
I can't even explain why i like it so much... probably the pale colors and the twine and just the simplicity of it.  I will probably be making more of the same with all my scrap paper, for next year.

Here are 2 close-up shots:

I'm entering this card in The Paper Variety challenge this week because the prize is just too awesome!

Wish me luck!!! :)
