Some More Christmas Cards

Just a few more Christmas cards I made today. I'm slowly getting through the huge pile I need!

This first one is for Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #74 and CR84FN43 to use brown, tan and green. I just had to pull out my new My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas papers for this one - have you seen how gorgeous these papers are? If not, go check them out! Lots of vintage brown, green and tan and lots of red glitter as well - simply stunning!

This is the swatch from CR84FN.


And this is my card for these challenges.

My next card is for Just Magnolia's Challenge #133 to use ribbons, Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #191 to use green and grey (ok my grey is silver, but it still counts right?!) and for old Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #27, which I turned round to fit my image. I didn't think I would like a Christmas card all in green and silver, but I really do like this one!

And my final Christmas card for today is for A Passion For Papertrey's Christmas Challenge, Colour Create's Challenge #84 to use pink, white and gold (gorgeous combo for Christmas cards!), SC359 for the sketch and Make It Monday's Challenge #41 to use a glue ink pad, which unfortunately I don't have, so I had to improvise and use my heat n stick powder from SU instead to make my snowflakes glittery all over. I do go a bit crazy for heat embossing on this one, but I love how it added so much more texture to the whole card.

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by.
