2 Beautiful Christmas cards

I went to a team meeting last night that was fun as well as informative.  We had a card swap and these are 2 of the cards I got.  the wreath card says it is from Earlene but the other card doesn't say who made it and I can't remember who gave it to me.  They are both beautiful in their own way.  The one on the left uses the Delightful Decorations stamp set for the 3 ornaments and the Elegant Lines Embossing folder for the background.  I love the colors she used, they are not the traditional Christmas colors but very pretty.

Earlene's card features the new hostess set in the front of the Holiday Mini Catalog called Northern Hearts.  I love the way the red berries spark instant color to the wreaths.  She embossed the Very Vanilla background with the Petals Aplenty Embossing Folder.  It looks like it would be a quick and easy card to make but it sure looks great!

I reckon I'll see you again with my post for the Royal Blog Tour.  I have my projects made and descriptions written so I am ready for Friday to come!  I hope you will join me as well as the many other blogs on the tour.  I suggest you pace yourself through the weekend.  There are 78 blogs on the tour so divide that by 3 and visit 26 of them each day.  I'm thinking 26 is about all the wonderful ideas my head could handle in a day!  A lot of castles on the tour will be offering various blog candy so good luck in winning some blog candy on the tour too.

These cards are lovely - The way you've combined the embossing with the stamped images is really beautiful.
