Hi everyone. I have two more Christmas cards to share with you today. I've actually finished making all the cards I need and have already mailed them out. I'm now making a few for my mom to use this year.
The first one uses a free digi from Desert Diva ... thanks Hannalie!! I love Hannalie's sentiments and used one as the only image on my first card. I just love this Joy with the ornament dangling and so wanted to show it off by providing lots of white space around it. I used this week's colors from Paper Players challenge (PP#125 - pool party, cherry cobbler, neutral of choice) to color in the ornament and then added clear stickles on top to make it glittery. I cut out the ornament and popped it up to add more depth. Two simple lines of scoring and a frame and my card was done! Easy, peasy and pretty!
Stamps: Joy to the World (Desert Diva digital stamps)
Paper: White (Neenah)
Ink: Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler (SU!)
Accessories & Tools: Clear stickles, scoring tool, Rectangle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), glue dot, and dimensionals
Here's a close-up of the main image along with the scoring lines:
The second card also uses the colors from the Paper Players challenge this week (as above). This time I made a whimsical card using circle punches for the snowman. I drew in his eyes, nose and mouth ... and colored the nose with Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write marker. A little twine, some torn snow drifts and a couple of red jingle bells finish off the card. Hope you like.
