While sorting through my paper stash, I found a book I bought back in my scrapbooking days that contained several pieces of coordinating dsp. I pulled out a black piece and a grey piece and made a birthday card for my SIL which I'll post later; but with the remaining pieces of those papers I made 3 Christmas cards.
Up first is this one with a Newton's Nook image, colored with Copics and enhanced with Wink of Stella for a little shimmer. I added some liquid applique to his hat and a strip of silver sparkly washi tape to the side and finished it with a SSS pre-printed sentiment.
Using the same papers and image with a different design, I made a 2nd card.
Last but not least, I made a 3rd card, doing some scoring on the side and adding an ornament done with a (r) SU! punch, some red mirror card, and a little strip of sparkly silver dsp to dangle it from the top. I used a CB ef for the image panel and tied a piece of silver cord into a bow, placing it on top of the ornament. All the sentiments on my cards are pre-printed ones from Simon Says Stamp. I don't know that I've made too many black and white Christmas cards before, but I like how these turned out.
I'm entering the last card into the Snippets Playground Challenge #416- use your snippets
and since Di (who runs the Snippets Playground) is doing a guest design for the Christmas Kickstart Challenge #56 - (use Christmas Snippets) I'll enter it over there too.
Thanks for stopping by and I really need to get my Christmas cards made before Christmas is upon us. Time's just whizzing by it seems!
Have a great weekend and take care!
