CR84FN43 - Ho Ho Ho

This week the CR84FN colors are wonderful earthy tones.

I was inspired to create a couple of different Christmas cards.
I used the  Mojo Monday Sketch as my starting point and the fabulous My Minds Eye Christmas papers. The rest was some simple stamping on the background and banner.  Stamps used: Stampington, Memory Box, Hero Arts. Papers: My Minds Eye.


My second card:
I love this little tree stamp from Hero Arts and used it to create a forest over my music background. Colored with water color pencils and highlight with some white snow.  I added a few birds from the Memory Box stamp Let Heaven and Nature sing which was used for the sentiment as well.

  6. These are both stunners Sue. Love how you coloured the trees on the second one and added the little birds but especially love the first one. Those little bells are sweet and that Santa image is the one I have in my head when I think of the jolly man in a red suit, lol.

    Love the vintage feel of both cards. Beautifully shabby chic!
