Even More Christmas Cards Again

I made a few more Christmas cards today for some of this weekend's Virtual Stamp Night over on SCS. Come on over and join in the fun! My challenge is Challenge E to use the frosted images technique, so if you join in don't forget to say hi!

This first card is for VSN Challenge F, which was to incorporate wrapping paper or packaging somehow into a project. Can you find mine? My background paper is some wrapping paper I had left over from last year and it is a gorgeous shiny silver with black wreaths and small white and silver images hanging off them. I used this paper as the basis for my colour combo as well. I'm also entering this one in Papertake Weekly's Anything Goes Challenge.

And my next card is for VSN Challenge N to create a winter scene. I used CC352 for my colours using Real Red, Wild Wasabi and Very Vanilla and Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #77.

My next card is for VSN Challenge P to use winter boots - well my Santa has some boots on, so that counts right?! This is also for A Passion For Papertrey's Red and White Christmas Challenge, Papertrey Princess Joyce's Snowflake Challenge and Free For All Challenge #84 to use colouring blocking with patterned papers.


Recipe:


And my final card for today is not for a VSN Challenge but is for Mojo Monday Challenge #218 for the sketch, Color Throwdown Challenge #171 to use Bravo Burgundy, Creamy Caramel, Soft Suede and Old Olive (colours inspired by the gorgeous Lost And Found Christmas Papers by My Mind's Eye which I have used as well!) and for Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #194 Anything Goes! Santa's Little Helper was in the Viva La Verve prize that I won a while ago but only arrived this week. Such a cute little set!

And that's all from me today folks! Thanks for stopping by!
