Elegant Christmas card plus a colourful playful one

Two more Christmas cards using the SOA Candy Cane Lane Collection.

The first one is an elegant one that uses the Peppermint Stripe background stamped in a beautiful dark green ink


I used the Merry Labels die - look at that beautiful embossed detail on it.  Stamped the holly and berries as well as the sentiment from the Merry and Bright stamp set.  Coloured the holly with Copic markers.

My next card is a fun playful one - again using the Peppermint Stick background,


I stamped the background with a rainbow ink pad by Colorbox.  I then used the colours from ink pad to make the candies and the little stars on the frame which was made using the smaller Merry Label die.    Entering into the Pastel Challenge at Southern Girls Challenge.

World Cardmaking Day is tomorrow - but there is lots happening over the entire weekend.  My first official duties as a Guest Designer at StampNation are over the weekend. 

Here's a little sneak peek of what's coming up 

See you over the weekend.
