Christmas Silhouette Cards from Crackerbox Palace!

It's Crackerbox Palace Thursday and today I am sharing some Christmas silhouettes cards I made with stamps that are available from Crackerbox Palace. You can win your choice of the stamps featured on one of these cards by leaving a comment at either blog. The simple requirements for a chance at winning are below and now you have even more choices of what you can win!
But first- the winner of last Thursday’s blog candy is                                                     Cazzy!  Here is her winning comment from the CBP blog: “I love your card, I think this is the one bug I don't have, I must get mine out and use them!  Cazzy x”
Cazzy, please send me or Crackerbox Palace your address and your choice of which stamps you want (see your options below), so we can get you the stamps you have won.
My cards today are Christmas cards made with silhouette stamps from Crackerbox Palace. I love silhouette stamps because they look great without a lot of coloring. I embossed the fun carolers group with red sparkly embossing powder in a circle created using an embossing diffuser from Tim Holtz. The musical notes background was made with an embossing folder from Darice and then sponged with brown distress ink.

The inside also shows the embossed notes and the unembossed circle in the center and I added a fun sentiment from CBP and a tree made with origami folds out of holiday wrapping paper like in this tutorial.

My second card features Santa’s sleigh and reindeer in silhouette that I also embossed, this time with black embossing powder across a yellow moon. The beautiful Crackerbox Palace sentiment was raised with pop dots over a background of Christmas wishes dp. 
So would you like to win the stamps featured on one of today’s cards or your choice of another CBP stamp? Here is how to win our  weekly blog candy:

Vicky or Karen will post a card or two every Thursday on both blogs. All you need to do is to leave a comment on either blog and if you leave a comment on both blogs you will have a double chance to win. We hope you also want to 'follow' the blogs. The following Wednesday a name will be picked at random and the winner will receive:

The featured stamps that we used in one of the cards that were posted,
OR you can pick out a stamp that is worth up to $10.00 and email us your choice
OR Vicky will email you a coupon code so you can go shopping at 
Crackerbox Palace store for your choice of the stamp(s) you would like with a $10.00 coupon.

For a Bonus: if you use the blog candy stamps and post it on your blog, Splitcoast or somewhere else you will be able to choose another free stamp. So make sure you check out one of our blogs on Thursday! The winner will have 2 weeks to contact Karen or Vicky.

So leave us a comment for a chance to win and come back and see us again next week!

I am entering these cards in the Anything Goes challenges at Loves Rubberstamps and at Papelitos Stamps.

Crackerbox Palace smiles, Karen

Karen, BOTH are fantastic!!! Love the second one - makes me wish Christmas was already here now! The music background on that first one is so pretty against the gorgeous silhouette.

The stamps are wonderful - you can't go wrong with a silhouette image can you? Your cards are beautiful and have my mind spinning with ideas! Love all the embossing too!

Thanks for picking me Karen, and I have emailed Vicki. Sorry the email link didn't work for you, it seems to not work for some people and I don't know why. Having said that comments is broken on my own blog, and I can't seem to get any support to fix it.
