The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

Hello my Good Friends...  I have posted a couple more cards that I made of several in a collection of SEI WinterSong Christmas Cards.  I used the I-top Bradmaker tool again to make a brad to complete my red velvet medallion on the first example.  The Wintersong Pattern paper is a great collection of pattern paper to use because of its festive colors and patterns that seem to fit so well together.  It has a wide variety of textures and sheens with velvet flocking, pearl, glitter and foil finishes.  With the wonderful patterns that boast elegant and beautiful winter scenes, it doesn't take much to dress up a card.  On the medallion card I used a simple and festive polka dot glitter paper for the main panel.  Then I used spellbinders nestabilities, Labels One to cut out the front and then I inserted a smaller of the nesty diecuts cut from a complimentary pattern of the same collection and slid it into the space to layer.  I made a velvet medallion with a Martha Stewart corner punch and and layered it on top of the diecut, finishing it up with one of the I-topper brads I made.  I used a simple Just Rite stamp sentiment to dress up the front.  These cards call for simple and elegant as at times the inside of the card is dressed up as well as the outside of the card.  With the flock, glitter and sheen of this paper, it made my job easy to create cards that my friends and family will love to recieve...


  1. Lovely, elegant card, Kathy. You've sold me on the i-Top. Just checked it out and it's now on my Christmas wish/want/need list. I love using brads in various ways and this tool hits the spot!
    Thanks for showcasing your lovely cards using it.

  3. The red medallion card is lovely too! It really stands out! By the way, your Santa Baby is pretty cute too! ;-) We Nana's, Grammies, etc,know how grandchildren can make the holidays so special!

  4. I could not help myself I had too post a comment about all the beautiful cards that you made. This is one of the cards that caught my eye. The polka dots on the paper bring every thing together.
