My first card hits two challenges. First, Day 280 at 365 Cards - Candy Cane. We are to use red and white stripes on our card. And I also used the sketch that was posted on both Our Creative Corner and Stamps and Smiles Fresh Batch. I made a long card, rather than the standard A2 size, but it still matches the sketch pretty well.
The yummy candy cane paper is MAMBI flocked paper! It's so cool. I purchased a big pad of this paper last year at Michael's when it went on sale after Christmas. The "believe" paper is from one of those DCWV stacks. I over-stamped the paper with the sleigh (Inkadinkado). The greeting is a Studio G stamp. I have about 20 of those little Christmas sets! You can't see in the photo, but I traced over the greeting with a glitter pen.I used EK Success punches to cut the snowflakes out of some glitter paper. Then I added gems.
For the last card, I used the Simple Doodles balloon digi stamp. I colored it with pencil and mineral spirits (more about that in a minute). The little birdie is a Inkadinkado stamp, that I cut out. Oh yeah, had to wear my reading glasses for that one!
