Christmas Cards for Kris

I haven't really taken out my Christmas craft stuff (still working on autumn) but since I was testing out my latest holiday purchases I decided to turn the tests into cards for Kris who will give them to her aunt to go with her stuffed dolls for sick children. This is Kris' blog site address:(http://klusivekreations.blogspot.com/2011/09/make-child-smile-this-christmas.html). You can donate too, but you need to send it to her by Nov. 1st and don't put any glitter on your 4x4 card (no envelope needed). Mostly I was playing with the Sizzix embossing folders (see photo below) which I used on paper from the Whitewash pack, available at Ben Franklin Crafts. The embossed designs were lightly sanded to bring out the under-color. I really like the two packages of K and Co. stickers (also from BFC) because of their vintage look and the fact that one set has layered die-cuts and the other has foil highlights. I hope that all you wonderful, generous crafters in blogland will help Kris out (she needs 150 cards). Thanks for reading this and please stop by again.
