Some Christmas Cards
I thought I would share with you my more detailed Christmas cards.
They aren't as detailed as most of my cards, but I was trying to keep it simple this year.
I have really love the cards I have been seeing with the white background with the pop of colour.
Then I was on YouTube and saw Jo's cards.
They are simple yet so pretty. Plus they are flat for mailing :)
I did add foam tape to the image for a little bit of pop.
I coloured the images in both brown hair and black hair.
I also matched each girls scarf colour to the cardstock frames for the image and the sentiment.
Here is a close up of the brown haired girl in blue :)
Here is the black haired girl in red...I have also done one with the brown hair.
I need to have some order to this, lol.
I also added some sparkle to her ear muffs, hand muff, trim around her coat and booties.
Here is the brown haired girl in purple. Again I did her with black hair as well :)
The sentiment is a $1.50 stamp from Micheals.
Now that my embossing folders and dies are nicely organized, it was so much easier to find what I wanted.
The last one I will share with you is my girl in green :)
I just realized that all the cards I have shared with you all have the same embossing folder. I did also use the swirls as it makes me think of snow swirling around.
Onto My Day:
I put up my tree today :)
Wayne took today off. At first I thought it was to help me with the tree. But nope it was just a coincidence, lol.
He did bring up the containers for me.
Again I kept it simple. I just put on the beads and all my red ornaments and a few cute ones of the girls.
I also decorated the house a bit.
I started to put my addresses back on my laptop. But I didn't have my bigger address labels, so Ashley took over.
She amazes me with what she can do on here. She took a simple template and modified it.
I hope you all had a creative Wednesday :)
