2 Christmas cards

Are you working on your Christmas cards today? Or getting in a little much needed scrap time? I've got a couple fun and easy cards for you today.
For both of these cards I used Moxxie's gorgeous Joys of the Season line. I feel like I got two totally different looks just by using different aspects of the line.


I have a thing for deer lately especially in combination with Christmas, I just love them, so I had to have this elegant deer as a star player on my card. I started with a white base, cut a piece of Boughs of Holly paper just slightly smaller than the front of my card, inked it and glued it down. Then I added a portion of the word border sticker to the top and the presents with the deer overlapping as my main "scene" at the bottom. The pattern in the background is bold enough that I lost the presents and deer in it a bit, but I resolved that by outlining them with a black pen.  I finished off my card by adding the "wishing you all the joys of the season" rub-on inside.

My second card has a more whimsical feel to it.


With this one I started with the Red/Green coordinate paper as my base, strung the bulb and bells on twine and attached the twine with brads. Then I cut the pieces of the tree from the scraps of my base, but used the red side to make it stand out from the green background. I fussy cut the little present out of the square cardstock sticker and added the Season's Greeting rub-on. Originally the holly was at the front of the Season's Greeting title, but I just cut it apart from the rest of the rub-on and moved it to the back because I thought it balanced the card a little better there. I also used one of the pieces of the bell stickers for the star at the top of the tree. Last I used a back pen to add a little bit of doodling and give the card a finished look.

I hope you get a few minutes of down time today for your own creating. 
Have a great weekend! :)Ange
