My son, who we have forgiven for aiming corner kicks into the pool equipment, was off for his first driving lesson so I distracted myself by making a few holiday cards.
This first one is for the Merry Monday Challenge #134: Ornaments. The challenge is to create a card with ornaments in silver/gray and blue.
I created a a silver & blue card, with ornaments. The tree is stamped with Delicata Silver Shimmer ink and the ornaments with Memento Paris Dusk ink. Dots of Glossy Accents are added to the stamped ornaments to create baubles.
A Hero Arts sentiment is stamped and heat embossed on a vellum banner to finish the card off.
I am also entering this one in Virginia's View Challenge #9: All Things Metallic.
This second card is my favorite for the day. I loved Therese Calvird's clean & simple triangle tree on her card as the Muse #93 and played around for a while with my Christmas tree stamps.
I wasn't happy with any of them and started looking through my collection for triangle shapes until I found exactly what I was looking for in PTI's Hello Sunshine stamp set.
The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday's Jingle All the Way stamp set. This card is also being entered in CASology Week 121: Festive challenge.
The final card is inspired by the photo for Festive Friday Challenge #44.
Are you surprised that I didn't use my Rustic Wreath on this card :) The photo reminded my of this pretty MFT wreath die which layers up beautifully.
This is another clean & simple card, with three layers of the wreath, a few enamel dots and a red silk ribbon paired with a larger PTI sentiment,
Thanks for stopping by,
