For these two pink-inspired Christmas cards, I decided to let the papers from the 12x12 paper pad by Crafter's Companion do (most of) the work for me.
For the first card, I simply added strips of shimmery pink centura pearl card behind a strip of patterned paper. I finished things off with some pink thread, a previously stamped and die cut sentiment (SSS) from my UFO box and Nuvo drops. I also added a little shimmer to the pigtails and jingle bells.
For my second card, I decided to do some quick and random colouring to the images on the patterned paper using coloured pencils. I die cut my panel using a stitched rectangle die (SSS) and matted it with another paper from the paper pad. I stamped and die cut the pile of gifts from the matching stamp and die set, coloured the image using Copics and mounted it on my card using foam tape. I added Nuvo drops to the teal dots and Glossy accents to the bows on the gifts.
And for every card that is being linked up
this fortnight, the lovely Jingle Belles,
Lauren and Stephanie, will each be donating
2 dollars to the US Breast Cancer Research Foundation
