Lovely As A Tree - Red and Silver Christmas Cards

I used the epic stamp set Lovely As A Tree by Stampin' Up! to create these two great cards . . . . .

This first card uses Real Red and Always Artichoke to create a Christmas wish, and some Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding finishes it off.
 The second card uses Silver Glimmer Paper and Smoky Slate ink to create the same card in a different colour scheme.  I did something a bit different with the "bow".  Here is an up close view for you ....

To create this bow you punch one Small Oval Punch from Silver Glimmer Paper (the old one that is now retired, but you could make it with the Large Oval punch as well) and a scrap of Silver Glimmer Paper that measures 3/8 x 1".  Cut the oval in half and attach it together by turning it around and overlapping the two rounded ends slightly.  Then wrap the scrap around the center to hide it all.  Voila a perfect bow!
These cards were inspired by Lee Conrey who is Queen of the CAS card.  Thanks, Lee!
