Christmas Selections is a bunch of mini images which I thought would create a challenge to make cards but instead I had so many ideas running around in my head I had to pick a few ideas and run with them. First up is a view master card, remember when you were a child and had a view master toy. I loved my view master. Second card I did a faux postage technique which is very easy at least mine because I have a mylar template for the postage. leave comment for a chance to win stamp set and don't forget to visit all our team member's blogs to see what they created.

  6. I loved my Viewmaster - I had shoeboxes of slides and it never got old looking at them time and again! Your viewmaster card is adorable and someone will be doing a happy dance for this card! And, your postage stamp card is very pretty and elegant!
