*********

*********

On the First One I used Both stamp sets.
 I also used both dies from the kit and cut them out in Silver Paper.  I wanted to show the inside of the card, because 
 I very carefully cut one of the snowflakes in half and placed 
each half above and below the sentiment.

Your Black, White & silver Christmas Greetings is very striking, as is the Red, White & silver Designed Merry Christmas Tree, although for very different reasons. The Three Owls on a Limb are very cute, and the Designer Paper is calling me to make up the real thing from this card and the Knitted Sweaters with Designed Merry Christmas Tree!!! The Christmas Greetings Snowflakes are also calling me!!!

Joyful Imperfections said...

Lovely cards, and oh wow, the blude snowflake card really stands out!

Cheryl Depler said...
