Christmas Virtual Retreat - Part 1

Hi everyone, 

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The cards I'm sharing with you today are from sessions 1 and 2 of the 4th annual Christmas Virtual Retreat held early last month in my Facebook group...

Here's the video of how I created the card...  

Card: Unbranded white and kraft and Clarity's clear parchment
Groovi plates: Linda's Christmas Treasures - New Year Party (frame) and Linda's Silent Night Layering Frame (imagery)
Tools and embellishments: Groovi and Pergamano embossing tools, Square picot dies, Polychromos pencils, gold Posca pen and Pergamano brads

#117 Texture at Path of Positivity (there's lots of different textures in the scene)
#93 Christmas at Unicorn Challenge
November AG at Jan's Digi Stamps Challenge

Here's the video of how that card was created...

Card: Unbranded white, Clarity's apple green parchment and Marina Fedotova's Poppets Postcards
Groovi Plates: Love Circular Duet
Tools and embellishments: Groovi and Pergamano embossing, perforating and cutting tools, Polychromos pencils (skin) and Ranger Mica Powders (all other coloring)

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then,


  1. Such lovely texture and subtle color on this holiday card! Beautiful! Thanks for sharing with us at Path of Positivity! ~Katrina

  2. Spiritually uplifting, Em! Wonderfully delicate embossing and festive church. Thank you for sharing your talents with us at Jan's Digi Blog Challenge. Good Luck!

  3. It isn't often that I can't decide a favorite when more than one card is shown. This time they are both worthy of being favorites. Wonderful creations. Love the church. Love the child and the coloring is perfect.

    Love, Hugs and Blessings

  4. Both cards are gorgeous, Em, but I love the one with the church just a tad more. It's my idea of a traditional Christmas card, and I'm a creature of habit and tradition. Of course I love your sweet little girl with her precious bunny too. Love the delicate frame you made for this sweet image. xx

  5. Two lovely cards Em - I particularly like the atmospheric vibe of the first! Hugs, Vicky xx

  6. Two fabulous cards EM, so glad you joined us at Jan's Digi Stamp challenge.

  7. I see that Jim commented on this card above mine,,, I agree with everything he said...but now that I have seen it in real life. I want to say that it is FABULOUS! I love it so much, and after Christmas it will join the other cards in the album that I made especially for your cards.

  8. Gorgeous card Em. The scene is beautifully filled with texture. Thank you for entering the November Challenge at Path of Positivity.


I love to read your comments. Thanks for taking time to leave them!
