Cards for Christmas - # 3 & 4

Here's number 3 and 4 in a series of 5, that we'll be making at my Christmas Card Making Nights. The first one is THIS Friday.


# 4 - Ski Slope Tree Trimmings

I had resisted buying the Ski Slope DSP from the Spring Mini until I saw so many beautiful Christmas cards made from it. You have only until the end of November to order from the range, so if you're interested in purchasing the DSP or any of the stamp sets and accessories, let me know before we have to say goodbye to Spring and hello to Summer!

I deliberated over this layout for ages (still not 100% happy), but love the fresh, vibrant colour mix of Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Really Red and Baja Breeze. Tree Trimmings got inked up for the first time, with me, and I just think the ornaments are among the nicest 'Christmasy' stamps I've seen!

Here's the Project Recipe -
Stamp Sets: Tree Trimmings (Spring Mini) and Short & Sweet
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip (plain and textured), Old Olive, Real Red
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red and Old Olive
Accessories: Ski Slope DSP (Spring Mini), 5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, Clear Rhinestone Brads, Scallop Edge Punch, Oval die, Stampin' Dimensionals


# 3 - Snow Swirled

When I saw a card on Splitcoaststampers made from Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow and Very Vanilla, I knew that I wanted one of my Christmas cards to have that 'yummy' combination. So here it is. I'm also pretty happy to have a chance to use a designer brad again!

Here's what I used -
Stamp Sets: Snow Swirled and Best Yet (L1 Hostess)
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow (embossed) and Very Vanilla
Ink: Versa Mark, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Bella Bleu DSP, Designer Brads, 1/2" Circle, Large Oval, Scallop Oval and Eyelet Border Punches, Stampin' Dimensionals, Silver Embossing Powder and small red stickers.

Thanks for having a peep! Enjoy the rest of the week.
