Note all sentiment/quote   stamps are from Quietfire Design  unless otherwise mentioned.

I absolutely love doing this alcohol treatment on clear plastic. I rubber stamped the quote  on white cardstock in the area where there would be no alcohol ink. Made a border from green metallic cardstock, edge to edge with the card, trimmed my plastic piece smaller than my card, adhered that down with double sided tape and then my metallic border. Added a few punched out holly leaves and some punched out red berries. Added some glitter in the veins of the holly leaves.

ID: Xmas09 _ Holly Ribbon - Merry Christmas

Ran a piece of white cardstock through the Cuttlebug with the Holly Ribbon embossing folder which had been brayered with Perfect Medium and then thermal embossed with Psychedelic embossing powder.
Mounted that to a white main card which had the bordered sponged with Distress stamp pads (Blue Jeans & Dusty Concord). Used the same colors to brayer onto the Flourish Border embossing folder, embossing on white cardstock, then clear embossing it. Rubber stamped the "Merry Christmas" With Versafine Blue Lagoon and clear embossed it. Had to touch it up a bit since it was stamped on an embossed surface.

I had some dark blue punched out snowflakes from a previous card, so covered it with a Squeeze & Roll glue pen and sprinkled Ritz micro fine "Stardust" glitter. Punched out some 1" circles and mounted the snowflakes to that creating the ornaments.

Ran the background through the Cuttlebug, using the snowflakes embossing folder, white cardstock, and brayering the folder first with Distress stamp pad Blue Jeans and then clear embossing it. Ran the brayer with Perfect Medium over the high points and embossed with Queen's Gold. Rubber stamped the quote with Silver and embossed with Detail silver on a dark blue cardstock. Mounted this to Snowflake embossed piece, than to another dark blue cardstock, then to the main cream card. Added some twisted silver/blue cord.

ID: Xmas09 - Peel Offs Ornaments Pink (on left) Green (on right)

Some Peel Offs from Elizabeth Craft Designs which I mounted to Sookwang tape and a piece of cardstock. Colored with Tombows, iridescent medium and micro fine glitter. Cut out the shapes and mounted to the cards.

Background was first run through the Cuttlebug with the Ornament embossing folder on cream cardstock, trimmed to size. A frame was die cut using Spellbinders Labels #8 from the gold embossed mulberry papers. A very thin strip of each paper was used as a hanging cord for the ornament. The pink is on a white card, the green is on a cream card. "Best Wishes" were stamped with Versafine Black Onyx.

I used a brass poinsettia stencil and translucent embossing paste and sprinkled Ritz micro fine glitter onto the wet paste. Let dry. Cut out the upper section leaves and mounted this to a red cardstock, trimmed to leave a border around. Stamped the sentiment with the Black Onyx. Mounted this to the main card which was run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.

This is another of my latest embossing folders "Winter Houses". Ran them through the Cuttlebug brayering the folder first with a couple different blues, then thermal embossing with either Holographic, Winter Wonderland (white sparkle), clear or Psychedelic. 

Mounted them to various backgrounds, dark blue cardstock, denim scrapbook paper, gold embossed red or blue paper. Then onto the main card all of them white.
