Christmas Time

I have two Christmas cards to share with you today. One card is for my daughter Megan and the second card is for our Nephew for his first Christmas.
For both cards I used a Craftwork Cards 148x148 Scallop edge card blank. I scored and folded the front panel of the card in half to form a Z fold.
For Megan's card I coloured the edge of the card blank with Victorian Velvet Distress ink. I cut to panel of white card, one for the front and one for the inside of the card. I stamp holly and script stamp is Victorian Velvet and Tattered Rose Distress inks. The stamps I used were a script stamp from the Decorative Backgrounds and the holly strip from Christmas Robins stamp set both by Hobby Art.
I stamped the cute girl image with a Memento ink pad. I coloured the image with Distress inks. The stamp is Gift of Giving by Penny Black. I mounted the coloured image onto a coloured panel of card. I added the image to the front of the card with foam pads.
I used Craftwork Cards Printers Block letter stamps for the name lettering on both cards. To finish the card I added faux stitching, die cut snowflakes and Stickles.

For my second card I again used the same card blank and stamps to create the background. The stamp I used for the main image was Humphrey's Corner 1st Christmas. I stamped the image five times onto smooth white card with a Memento ink pad. I coloured in the layers with Copics. I cut out the layers and added them to the background circle with foam pads.

I attached the main image onto a scallop circle of dark blue card and then onto the card with foam pads. I added Stickles to the fur area on the Christmas hat. To finish I added blue Dimension Pearls to the corners of the card and small black dots with a fineliner.
