Christmas card

It's that time of the year again so last week I spent some time making Christmas cards. This card is a pretty quick card because I used some left overs from the personalized Christmas cards I made earlier. I'll show these cards once they are sent :p

I started with stamping the leaves with Altenew Olive and Memento Bamboo leaves. The pine cone is stamped with Memento Peanut brittle.

I added the circle die which was first blended with Frosty Pink and Rouge from Altenew and stamped witch Festive berries distress ink. I used foam tape to adhere this circle to the card.

Beautiful flowers card

I'm in a romantic mood so I decided to make a red card with black and white as I think these colors match perfectly.

I first stamped the flowers with Versafine black ink and cut it out by hand.
For the background I blended worn lipstick, festive berries and barn door to create a gradient look.

Next I stamped the sentiment with Versamark on a piece of black cardstock and heat set this with white embossing powder.

Finally I used foam tape to adhere the flowers and the sentiment onto the card.
