2 Christmas this morning
I had some time this morning to play. I looked up some challenges. This first card did not come out as planned for the challenge, but I just loved how the stamped panel came out with Dasher in the Snow Swirled trees, so I altered my layout and just made the card anyways. I used a lot of dazzling details glitter glue on this scene.
Colors: Lucky Limeade, Soft Suede, Pool Party
Stamps: Dasher, Snow Swirled, Sincere Salutations
I decided to try again. This second card is for the sketch at Inkspirations (the first card was originally planned to go by this layout). I used my very neglected "Season of Joy" stamp set. The poinsettias were inked first with pink, then I rock n rolled the edges red. Notice that I scored all around the edge of the card.
The patterned paper and twine on both these cards are new!
The colors are from Hand Stamped Sentiments - Blushing Bride, Real Red, Pear Pizzaz, Pool Party (I added vanilla and suede)
Stamp Set: Season of Joy
I had thought that I made enough Christmas cards a long time ago, but, I recounted today and I needed 7 more. So now I only need 5. Yippee. It's not at all a hardship for me to make more!!! (And if I do have left-over I can use them next year!)
