Dresden Plate Christmas Cards

Where did November go??? It's December already!  Today I am sharing Christmas cards that I made for Mother (96 years young)  to send out for the holiday.  Since she is a talented quilt maker,  I chose a Dresden Plate design for her cards using a variety of Christmas Pattern Papers and Red and Green Cardstocks.  I stamped each card with an Annabelle stamp and Memento red ink.  I printed an inside verse on the White card base before assembling the cards. I cut all the "pattern pieces" using my Cameo and a Silhouette file (Snapdragon Snippets) and a scallop circle die(Center).  I embossed the designs with EF's. Photos below show individual cards.

Die Cut Diva Challenge: Layer It or Layers.  Pattern design has layers.

These cards were truly a work of love as are all Mother's lovely quilts.  I am sharing a picture of a Baby Quilt that she made using a Dresden Plate design with quilt scraps for her youngest great-granddaughter. 

Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa
