Hi Vicky, so cute cards! I love both, they are really beautiful!
Love both cards! They are very beautiful!
Beautiful! I love those little kitties and that poinsettia die!
Those kitties are so cute! Love the background you are featuring with the layering stencil. Will watch the video later, and learn a few new things. Thanks!
Love, love, love that poinsettia card and die. I think we need a puppy die!
Just so beautiful
Great cards. I love what you’ve done with the Autumn Splendor die. So elegant.
Wonderful use of the Autumn Splendor die!
Vicki these are lovely cards. Especially the sweet kitties 🙂
The gold foil is beautiful but the kitties are after my heart!
Fabulous cards, love the slimline kitty card and the gold against the red is fabulous too.
Wonderful gold look and like the whimsy of the cats.
I watched your video. I love your tip of inking the inside of an embossing folder. Thanks for a great video.
OMG the kitty one is sooooo cute! And I love the elegant gold and maroon
I agree that the Sneaky Kitties is the best die in the Diecember release. Your kitty card is so sweet. The second card you created is so elegant with the gold focal point. Even though it is a fall die, looks great on a Christmas card!
Great card Vicky, and I love those cuties little cats? absolutely adorable.
Love both the cards, but those cats are so adorable! Thanks for sharing.
Your cards are beautiful as always. I really love the gold leaf Christmas card – simple and elegant.

The kitties popping up from behind the wall are SO CUTE. I just love them
I love your use of the leaves die and the kitties are adorable on the plaid background.
I knew these would be beautiful and the kitties are so cute. I make my slimline cards the same size as yours and placed a mark on my Tim Holtz paper cutter in the same place! LOL
The sneaky kitties die is my favorite from this release! Love your cards – the autumn splendor is really pretty!!
Both your cads are lovely Vicky. My favorite is the kitty card. I love cats. =^^=

Amazing cards Vicky!!! Love the gold outline on the embossed background!!
Beautiful cards. The kittens are so cute.
Thanks for sharing two beautiful card ideas. I think my favorite die from the release is also the sneaky kitties.

Love those kitties!
Your Christmas card is so elegant! And those kitties are just too adorable!
Oh my – that top card is amazing!
Really loved the kittie card, unfortunately it was out of stock. Te colors you choose are always eye catching. I am still binging on your old videos but i took a break of the new stuff too!
Very cute cards, and I must have the kitty border die. They’re simply adorable ?
Those kittens poking their little heads up! Oh my!
Fun video. I like the design of the layered gold Autumn Splendor die, but my favorites in this release are the Simple Stem and Dainty Snowflake (which I could use a similar layout).
What beautiful cards!
Love all your techniques especially the ink in the embossing folder!
Very pretty cards!
Your cards are very elegant – thank you for sharing.
Both your cards are beautiful. But I am a bit partial to the kitties. They are just too cute!
The cards are so pretty as usual! You are amazing!
Gorgeous cards Vicky, my favorite of course is the kitties! I love to see your cat Ginger on your desk when you craft. We had 4 indoor cats who have all left us, but we now care for feral cats, all neutered and fed and named. They live in my back yard, get fed and get “treats” 2x/day! Very spoiled cats!
Those kitties are adorable, and I always love me some red and gold combo for Christmas!
I must agree, these kitties are so cute. And again I adore youre combination of material and techniques. Your cards are georgeous!
Both cards are great. I just love the kitties.
I am drawn to the simplicity of your cards. Great job
Even though I am a dog person, this kitty card is a winner. As always your cards make me smile.
I love what you did with the snowflake die. Great cards!
Super nice cards. I like your style.
That kitty card is SO adorable! I’m super impressed that you can estimate how much to cut without a ruler — and be so precise!!!!! I have trouble even with a ruler!!!! The “Merry Christmas” card is beautiful. Just beautiful. Love the gold with the red. I’ve been playing with tone on tone with stencils and I really like the look. Thanks, Vicky! Stay safe and have a good week/weekend.
Both cards are great. I love the cat die. thank you
I love the color of red you used on the Christmas card and the embossing folder made a great background for the card too. Thanks for sharing your inspiration. I love the gold embossed leaves as well. Thanks so much for sharing.
Love your cards.
Hi Vicky, Thank you for inspiration about turning regular dies into Christmas cards. Just totally love the kittens!
great projects, thoroughly enjoyed the video
thanks for sharing
Love the embossing! Excited for the giveaway!
I always enjoying seeing what you come up with. I love the kitties (I’m a cat person myself) and I love seeing Ginger >^..^< appear in your videos…..because that is a cat's life, right? I already ordered the kitty border die some days ago, just waiting to get it. Love the simplicity with red and white card. It really highlights the image. Using the gold paper or embossing on the floral image is pretty too.
Also unrelated…..I have been working on making the wreath project you posted a couple weeks ago. I just went to IKEA the other day for the second time ever, (last time was when they open here in KS, some years ago) and picked up some frames. I will be making a few to give as gifts either to teachers or my sisters, haven't decided. But having fun making them. I love what you do with mixed media. So fun and inspirational. Thanks for sharing. I know it's a time intensive process. Happy Holidays!
love your work, Vicky – great video
Beautiful cards , but that kitty border one is definitely my favorite!!
Red is my favorite color, so naturally, I love your cards today!
as always Vicky.. beautiful cards.. thank you and Happy Holidays!

Loving your slimline kitty card, so cute!
Totally agree. The kitties are the best. I’m the catlady. Take care of 15. The house is full of them. But so much joy
Beautiful cards! That kitty card is so cute!
I’m falling in love again with embossing folders – these 3D ones are wonderful and the inking technique is great. Thanks for the inspiration, Vicky.
I don’t know which one I like better. Those little kitties are so cute, though, that may be my favorite. It’s a hard choice.
Each of the dies as well as the embossing folder you’ve used I’ve got on my wish list. You are right about the delicate leaves & flower being very versatile. I really like both of the cards you’ve made & thank you for the video.
Vicky, your cards are gorgeous! The Kitty card is so sweet, and liked how you made it into a slimline card. For your second card, the gold against the red is so elegant, beautiful holiday card!
The Kitty border die is super cute and one of my favorite parts of this release, too! I also like the way you used the embossing folder (from an earlier release) on the one card. Let’s just face, I always enjoy all your cards!!!
The kitty die cut is darling.

The kitties with the plaid is perfect!!
I do so love your cards and journals thanks for sharing.
Great cards! I like how you created a plaid background with the stencils and those kitties are so cute! My favorite is the beautiful red embossed card and the very pretty floral die cut!
Dies give a much better cut and impression than the expensive scan or cutting machines!
Those sneaky kitties are super cute! I love how elegant your other card looks. I’m not a big fan of gold but your card looks gorgeous!
Both of your cards are so fabulous, but I really love your sneaky kitties card. So playful and fun!
