These are my elf cards so far:
Here, on three of these have pieces from decorative party napkins that I affix and coat with varnish. The other cards is a wreath using a Stampin' Up! stamp.
The right hand images are with napkin pieces. The top one is on wallpaper and there is a leaf (line drawing one) from the wallpaper pattern. The deer is cut from a National Geographic magazine. The bottom right, the leaf is from a catalogue with wallpaper background, cut into wide stripes.
These nutcrackers are from napkins.

OWH 100s

At first I stamped right onto the cardstock:
Then I tried cutting out the image and remounting:

The left image, the wreath (green part) is with a Fiskars Template. The bow is from wrapping paper.

Here is one of my experiments using varnish. The middle is a piece of wrapping tissue paper with a ribbon that has a gingerbread girl.

Another attempt with the varnish and tissue paper.

More Christmas Cards for OWH

The ornaments are cut with the Fiskars Christmas Shape Template and Shape Cutter. I like that I could use non-Christmasy paper again for something a little different and it still retains the holiday feel.

Christmas Cards to top off OWH box

The middle card is from an ornament challenge last year. I figure it looks better as a card 'dimensional sticker' than on my tree.
It seems Christmas themed paper is not always necessary for Christmas card backgrounds:

These are from a tissue box:

Punch, Punch, Punch

The drawer to the side was just right for the biggest punches which would not fit it the drawers with the rest of the punches!
