Sending Christmas Love

Happy Weekend!  I'm cranking out the Christmas cards as best I can, since I need to send some from my family, as well as for my stash at the arts gallery, where I sell my cards.  


Finally got to play with some new-to-me DeNami goodies that I won months ago.  The snowflake was stamped in red, then colored in with kraft and white markers.  I also dotted some areas with Liquid Pearls.

The sentiment panel is lopped off one side, and I rather like how this looks.  Can't take credit for the idea:  I've been poring over the pages of Card Creations by Paper Crafts Magazine.  I get SO much inspiration there!



My inspiration comes from these challenges:
  • DeNami sketch #14 - I turned the sketch and took a little liberty with the sentiment placement

Thanks for dropping in today!

Pretty! Love the pops of colors and the touch of the liquid pearls is the greatest! I am in love with kraft cards! That twine bow just sets it all off. Great job! You could do a whole set of these in other colors but I think I would like the red the best!

Such a pretty card, red and white always looks so striking together and magical when associated with Christmas. All these Christmas cards on everyone's blogs is getting me motivated to make some myself.
