A few Christmas cards, a RAK & a reminder


Here is a simple yet nice Christmas card I made using leftovers from my World Card-making event earlier this month {just realizing I never shared the cards yet-oops} since I over-cut supplies & had a few cancellations, I can now make more cards for my stash-all was not lost. I used Asela's Christmas Blessings set by Gina K Designs which has this precious little church in the country complete with Christmas tree & snowman in the yard. I chose to keep the design real simple and color very little for a big impact on the card. The church, trees & snow are outlined in stardust stickles (hard to capture in the photo). I used the mega rhinestones from Gina's store for the ribbon on the bottom of the top note die (hole punch) and dp is Ski Slope by SU! (available in the holiday mini catalog).

This next card uses the cute wooden deer in her set (but just his face, how cute) I watercolored with the Peerless Transparent Watercolors which are totally portable & easy to use! I love to stamp images & take them to the bedroom & watercolor while watching t.v. can you tell I like to multi-task? They really are awesome & have a great selection of colors. The ribbon is Alpine ribbon originals by SU! also in the mini catalog (love the colors & texture of it).

this sweet RAK is from Dawn Easton (sorry I'm so late to post it-ugh) - isn't it pretty? I just love her clean, crisp style of cards with just the right amount of layering. She's a sweetheart - Thanks again, Dawn!!

Lastly a reminder:
Tonight at 7:00 - 10:00 p.m. CST there is a Land Cruise happening in the Gina K forum on SCS! Don't miss out on the contests, challenges, prizes, and land-cruise special announcement! All the details are on this thread. See ya there!! Pin It

All these cards are really cool...great work everyone. The Church card is particularly cool, really brings out the true meaning of Christmas and the down-home, old fashioned feel of the Holiday!
