Xmas Cards for 2010

Hi all

Get me, keeping my word, and have today made two xmas cards for next year.  We will see how long this lasts.

The first one I am entering for

Here it is meeting the requirements of the sketch and buttoning it as required.  This is one of next years xmas cards, using some lovely glitter paper and the sentiment from the Justrite collection.  I used the cuttlebug to cut out the sentiment and also its frill.  I added the ribbon and placed a large button, which I had tied with gold thread and attached a little gold bell. I used glossy accents to raise the cut out sentiment and then glittered it up to match the paper.

The card

and the close up of the button detail

and the 2nd one into the Winter Wonderland Challenge a colour combo of cinamon, cherry and lime  - this is a new blog land for me and I look forward to keeping up with each challenge to fill my xmas list.

After finding this site I just had to meet the challenge and of course get another of next years xmas cards out the way.  This was quite a difficult colour combo, not in the lime and cherry but in the cinamon.  I have no dark browny/red papers as such, so had to use a little lighter brown one (mental note for self, buy some unusual coloured cards and papers) Also cinamon itself is light brown, but the colour spectrum selects it as a browny/red.  I used a Mo Manning stamp and copics - my favourite colouring medium by far these days.  I used some liquid applique for the fur on the clothes and also as snow on the floral array with some ice stickles on top to give the snow glitz.

So here is the card

the close up of the snow covered flowers

and the ever important close up of the coloured image using the copics.

Ok, xmas is finally over back to work tomorrow, if you are back at work too (I know how you are feeling right now)

Well take care and thanks for looking at my creations and for your kind comments

Hugs Kate x
