For my first card I used this set from the Christmas Nested Frames & Occasions set.  I just added some lace for the border around it and layered it atop this plaid paper with pop-ups with some greens I had picked from the woods nearby (along with a few paper flowers and brads).  To preserve them I put them in some polyurethane.  I had just picked up some multi medium gloss from Claudine Helmuth but did not have a chance to give that a go yet.  I have a pile of other branches and leaves that I'm gonna try and preserve for future cards.  I like using natural stuff it gives the card a unique feel to it.

For my second card I used the square stamps From Our House Set.  These along with the above set go with the new clear blocks which I like so much better in that placement of the image is easier!  I cut out the different layers with my Spellbinder square nestabilities and added pop-ups for dimension.  To make my sentiment I used the Times New Roman 25 point letters.  This was the first time I've ever used these and WOW! Do I love them!  I can add any sentiment I choose and it lines up perfectly wherever I choose to put it!  Especially in those tight little spaces.

Please visit these designers' blogs to see what fabulous  JustRite Christmas inspiration they have for you on the hop today!
