Obama and Elvis Christmas Cards

Hi, guys! Hope all is well!  For today, I wanted to share a couple of Christmas cards I made but didn't have a chance to blog.  I wanted the recipients to get them when they returned from vacation and didn't want them "out there" until they had them.

For this first one, I wanted to make a card for a fellow blogger named Debbi whose posts I have been enjoying this past year. I have not read anyone more passionate in her writing.   She was writing a lot about her desire to get President Obama re-elected.  My husband had a stamp of the President, so I borrowed it and this is the card I made. The inside read: White House Christmas

Stamps:Viva Las Vegas Stamps
Paper: Papertrey Ink, Echo Park
Inks: Memento Black
Misc.: Copic Markers, Computer Generated Sentiment, Santa Hat

The next card up is for my friend Irvina who was away visiting family in Oklahoma this holiday.  As you can see I had a thing with using random style sentiments this holiday!  Irvina loves Elvis Presley, so I thought this would be a fun card for her.

Stamps: Cornish Heritage Farms
Ink: Versafine
Paper: Papertrey Ink, Echo Park
Misc.: Clear Embossing Powder, Snowflake Button, Bakers Twine, Computer Generated Sentiment

Both cards were fun to make, and while the sentiments were both computer generated, they each had a unique look to them I thought.

Hope your day is a great one!

I LOVE my card! I have a couple boxes of President Obama memorabilia from both campaigns and this card is definitely going to be part of the collection. Thank you again so much, you're so thoughtful.

I have to say the Elvis one made me grin so bad....I've been singing "Suspicious Minds" (very badly granted) for the past couple of days! :)

Hope you had an amazing New Year Winnie!

These are great! I especially love the Obama stamp and the backgrounds on both cards.

I hope it's not too late to wish you for 2013.

As usual your cards are good and they have a nice sense of humour.

I love these personal Christmas cards and I'm sure the recipients loved them too.

I love the Obama one!

Very clever. I like how you tailored each one to each person, too. No email can ever be as special as a hand-made, hand-written card like that.
