Yet More Christmas Cards

Standard

Here is another batch of Christmas cards I made from that One Sheet Wonders Class I am taking from Jessica Taylor:

 

HWSO1c

The DP I used in these cards I stamped myself — the blue and silver snowflakes.  That was fun.  It’s part of the class.  I used blue Colorbox pigment inks and Delicata Silver.  The stamps are a Stampendous cling set called Jumbo Snowflakes.

I couldn’t resist blinging most of these cards up in one way or another — gems, glitter tape, glitter embossing powder.  But still the DP does most of the work.  Some of the people who post their work in the class, I think, have fussed up their cards with too many embellishments.  That’s just my opinion, but I think the point here is to highlight the DP, not hide it behind ribbons and doilies and doo-dads.The left-hand card in the second row has no bling at all, and I think it’s one of the better cards.  I deliberately restrained myself.  If you add too much, you can’t always take it back — better to quit before you go too far and ruin and otherwise fine card.

What do you think — can there ever be too much bling?
