I love the simplicity of this sketch. I love the Christmas tree and wanted it to be the focus, so I is the only different color in my monochromatic blues.

I love the sketch, but found it difficult to keep both corners facing up. All in all, I like the card.

Reindeer



Believe it or not, this card is not part of a challenge. The Reindeer dies arrived and I just had to use them. I used the mini cloud stencil and the snowdrift stencil to create the background. A birch tree die from Taylored Expressions some Sparkling Snow glitter from Sparkle n Sprinkle finished off the card with the beautiful deer dies. Magnificant creatures!!

These are some of my favorite colors so this one was a no brainer. I used the stackable snowflakes from MFT in silver and light blue and the word "noel" from Technique Tuesday. These were all mounted on silver sparkle paper from MFT. Truly a hit!

I wasn't sure that I was going to make a card for this challenge as the fall colors, though beautiful, are not my favorites. Once I began stamping the daisies that all changed. The contrast with the dark brown was stunning and the pops of rust really brought all of it together.

I love that little window in the sketch. I had a hard time deciding what to put in it, but the little critters from Up in the Air just fit and I love the way they peek over an edge. I have made so many Christmas Cards of late, that I was ready for a change.

I used a piece of gold dotted acetate for the center panel. I added a piece of white which holds a removal Christmas ornament for the recipient. The ornament is a diecut which I glued onto a piece of watercolor paper. I used Tombow markers and a waterbrush to color. Then I cut the ornament out. I love the look of the watercolor. It almost looks like stained glass.
