More Christmas Cards!

Yes, I've been busy this mid-semester break!!! ;)

I tossed whether I should post a birthday card or a Christmas card, then decided to carry on with the festive season theme since it looked like some people liked the reminder to get them started!

So here's another one I made the other day. It would have made life easier if I had something like Take Three dies but unfortunately I didn't, so I had to improvise (and I needed the excuse to use my new corner chomper!).


I'm quite happy how this card turned out. I will make more later leading up to December. I got my New Leaf cardstock and just didn't know how to make use of the bright green colour (I'm a very pastel tone/neutral colour person). Now I have a solution to the problem! Thank goodness, green is part of Christmas colours lol

I also heat embossed the images with black Filigree embossing powder and then coloured them in with my trusty colouring pencils, yet again. I just haven't put them away since I made the umbrella card lol

Thanks for coming by again!

Lovely card. I think the embossed background goes great with Tiny Treat images.

This is such a cute card. I have the take three die and stamp sets, and have hardly used them. This gives me a great idea.

Can be definitely mass produced. The colored images are gorgeous. Great idea! Love it.

P.S: Charlie is a cocker spaniel.

So cool. Love how you selectively chomped the corners of the focal trio and the embossed white mount. So mod.
