Christmas Card

Today I worked on two Christmas cards for tow different challenges.
This first one is for Christmas Card Challenge Week #10 the challenge this week is to Create Your Own Background. I got this TH Embossing folder after Christmas and I am so happy to have a chance to use it. I embossed some green Coredinations Paper, sanded it and layered it on really cute BasicGrey paper from the Jovial Paper Pad. I kinda covered it up but I did punch out some things from the middle before I glued it all together. I used the same paper in the inside and for the circle around 25 and the little guy at the top.
Here is the inside

My next card is for Merry Monday Challenge #6  They had this wonderful sketch.

Here is my card for that challenge.

I used the same paper pack and a couple of Amuse stamp sets. I colored the image with Copic markers. Then added Baby Blue stickles to the ice and snowflakes.

Now I have  two more cards for my Christmas stash. I am so glad I am doing this. It will be fun when Christmas time comes and I have a ton of cards ready to go.

Have a great weekend and be sure to check out the new challenge tomorrow at SSDS.
Thanks for stopping,
