25 Christmas Cards - A Donation for the Montana Professional Teaching Foundation

Each year at the MEA-MFT Educator's Conference, there is an auction for the Montana Professional Teaching Foundation. My daughter Aaron and I made twenty-five cards, 5 each of 5 different layouts. I put them in 5 packets, with one of each layout in the packet.

The cardinal on a branch uses Cuttlebug's embossing folder. I punched the white snowflakes and put a red jewel in the center.

The brayered tree scene used a post-it note for the moon and a cut away for the snow. I used bashful blue with the brayer. A Merry Christmas stamp finished the front.

The hanging ornaments used Cuttlebug's embossing folder. Bling was added to each ornament. The poinsettia corner stamp filled up the white space to complete the front.

I used Stampin' Up's Jingle All The Way for the sentiment. I layered the white on red, using the ticket punch and white brads for embellishment. A red ribbon finished the front.

The last card used another Cuttlebug embossing folder. Using the Stampin' Up! ornament stamps and punch, I put the ornaments on dimensionals. A brad at the top of the ornament and a punched snowflake finished the front.

The envelopes for each card are stamped with a matching stamp from the card.

Your cards are beautiful. I would think they should get lots of bids.
