Peace on Earth

Today's cards are for this week's The Cat's Pajamas Tuesday challenge (TCPTUES171) which is an inspirational one. This is a great challenge for me as I really need to get more Christmas cards done so I'm not working in a panic in December. This time last year  I had 1/3 of my cards completed. This year - well - not so much. In fact I made two cards for this challenge, not for extra brownie points but because I really need to jumpstart the Christmas card task.

For my first card, I stamped the bird from The Tweetest Things set with white ink onto red cardstock, sprinkled with white detail embossing powder and then heat set. I cut it out with the matching CutUp. I attached to the card background with pop dots. The Hero Arts sentiment was cut with circle Spellbinders Nestabilities. As you can see, I kept it clean and simple.

Since my first card was on the more elegant side, I decided for a more fun look on the second. I stamped The Cat's Pajamas Just Chillin bunny onto Copics X-Press It blending card and then cut with a Spellbinders Nestabilities allowing one ear to fall outside of the circle. I raided my large Christmas paper stash and found some older patterned papers for the layout.

That's it for today. I hope your Sunday is nice and relaxing.
