More Handmade Cards

I went to my card making group this week and this is what I did......
the green ones have a clear insert in the front with the printing on it. Inside I stamped some lovely evergreen trees and a ribbon was added to the front... Pretty huh?



This one was done with a black base and a gray sheet on top. the feathered pomegranate was embossed in white. A piece of wire was twisted around a toothpick to make some curly vines for the stem. The message on this one was stamped in black and embossed to give it a raised appearance.Between the feathers I used glue pen and sprinkled some of Martha Stewart glitter on it... Did you know Martha has her products in Walmart now? Check out the craft supplies there..;-}

Oh, and I saw Ms. Martha's things at Wal-Mart the other day. I was kind of hoping she would take her home stuff there too.
