Christmas Cards x 2

I managed to miss my goal of doing at least one Christmas project a month this March so I am doubling up here in April.

First up is a Lili of the Valley stamp Collecting the Tree which I paired up with Crate Paper dp. I tried a different Memento ink to stamp the image, Expresso Truffle which gives a softer look than the Tuxedo Black that I normally use. I used a piece from one of the label sheets to stamp the PTI sentiment. A combo of Ranger Stickles and Polar White Flower Soft emulated snow.   

Products: Lili of the Valley stamp, PTI sentiment stamp, Crate Paper dp, Linen Thread, American Crafts ribbon, MFT and PTI buttons, Ranger Stickles, Flower Soft, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Copic Markers
Copics: Bears-E40, E41, E42; Scarves-W00, E81, BG10, BG11, BG34; Tree-YG0000, YG21, YG01; Snow-G0000, G00; Shadows-C00, C1

I used the same Crate Paper pad for my second card using Sugar Nellie Christmas Garland stamp. I bought some 4x8 envelopes this winter so the card size is 3.75x7.5. I cut down the base  top 3/4 of inch in order to allow the front panel to reflect the snowflake top cut with one of The Cat's Pajamas Holiday Toppers CutUps. The small sawtooth border at the bottom of the image was cut with The Cat's Pajamas Pinking Border CutUps.

Products: Sugar Nellie stamp, Crate Paper dp, May Arts ribbon, Basic Grey fabric brad, The Cat's Pajamas CutUps, Copic Markers
