Waltz right into Christmas with WMS

Not one, but two cards for this Waltzingmouse waltz.
The first one, I had this great idea to make light bulbs with the small teardrop from Teeny Trees.
I stamped the bulbs then used a piece of foam and rubber to make the base
then gold embossed them. I think they came out better than expected but
my string of lights were harder than I imagined.
Tell me what you think!
The stars on the tree are gold embossed and look bright, oh so bright IRL.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Card number two...is as clean and simple as I could possibly get.
Again, the tree decorations are gold embossed.
Thanks for coming by!
I can't wait to see what every one else created.
 FYI...here's a pic of the tiny square of foam and rubber that I cut out to make the light bulb bases.

Joanne, these cards are festive FUN! I love how you made the border with the lights!! So perfect with that little shimmery tree, and the second card just has the sweetest homespun design...my fave design of all, of course :) Awesome waltz cards!!!

Clever using "Tidings" as the stem on your tree :) and creating the base for your holiday lights. Watch out WMS.. Joan could be your next competitor. (*wink*)
Thanks for sharing

What great cards! I love the lights on the first one - and the use of text for the tree stem is *so* creative! The second is beautifully elegant - the embossing is a fabulous touch!
