Christmas Cards - oh no, not again!

I promised myself that I would not start too soon on the Christmas Cards but then I decided that I would and so dug out the Christmas box and fossicked through all the bits and came up with this for the Annabelle Stamps Sketch Challenge #026.

No sentiment - just papers, a stamp that I then covered up with bling, some inked edges with SU Old Olive, and two lables 4 from Spellbinders. All the card is SU - Kiwi Kiss, and Chocolate Chip, while the DP is from Basic Grey Blitzen Collection.  I'm just starting off slowly.

I also decided to enter Just Scraps Challenge #15 Love is in the Air.  It is a wedding card.

Two circles cut from card that had been oversprayed with Tsukinek Stains and Moon Shadow Mists.  The wings and legs and faces and beaks and heart and sentinement are all freehand - the wings and beaks were cut out and attached, and the others drawn in. The circles are on dimentionals to lift them off the card - a commercial white blank card.


You should be able to see some shimmer effect here - it is really shimmery and shiney on the bird bodies, but this photo doesn't do it justice. BestI could do however, it gets dark pretty early here at the moment!
