Last of the Christmas Cards

Hello! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! I know I absolutely did! I loved everything about it and didn't want it to end! I meant to get online and post the rest of my Christmas cards, but time just seemed to slip away from me! I'm sure you know how that is! :)
First, I'd like to share my very favorite Christmas card of the season! I made it for my hubby!
I told my husband he was definitely special, because I used my precious Papertrey Ink felt for the tree on his card! ;) The stockings are some brads I've had in my stash for years! The patterned paper and border sticker are last years Echo Park collection. I added some gems to the felt tree and tied some jingle bells on with some twine! Oh, and the sentiments got stamped on the inside.

Next up, a card for my Mother and Father-in-law:

October Afternoon patterned paper. In The Meadow stamps and dies heat embossed in silver. The snowflakes are punched out using Martha Stewart punch, then coated in Martha Stewart glitter. The trim was in my stash. and both this card and the previous I used Edgers die #1.

And for my final card:
Patterned Paper is October Afternoon, Holiday Style. I hand cut the snow drifts from vellum, and punched the snowflakes from vellum. The top was cut with Edgers Die #4 (I Think). Aqua mist ink and buttons and a Ripe Avocado button. and In The Meadow stamps and dies again.

One last thing I thought I'd share before I go. In my last post I mentioned the Cream Cheese French Toast Souffle I'd be making for Christmas breakfast. I was just so proud of it, I took a picture and thought I'd share with you how it turned out:
It was good. But, since I used this baking dish, instead of the 9x13 the recipe suggested, I ended up having to cook it for quite a bit longer than the 50 minutes suggested. But in the end, it was a tasty treat!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope to be back very soon with non-Christmas projects!  :)

Well, first of all, you must really love your husband, to use that much felt on his card! That was the first thing I thought of. Your breakfast looks so yummy and beautiful. I like all your other cards, too. You did such a nice job of using patterned paper. I seem to only buy it....Brilliant to use vellum for the snow drifts. I'll need to try that next year.
