Christmas and New Year Cards

Happy Holidays! On this day I want to share some Christmas and New Year cards that I’ve made to send season’s greetings.

I decided to copy the design of a card with bullfinch on a branch that I’ve made earlier. This time I used blue oval frame and stamped snowflakes on the background. The hand-colored bird is sitting on some branches with pine-cone and berries.

Next I used Rock Candy Distress Glitter on blue chipboard snowflake and created dotted and shaded background for it. I continued stamping sentiment on a strip of vellum (I did this technique a lot this season).

For the next three cards I used the same sketch and materials: white background with dry-embossed texture, vertical stripes of patterned paper in the center, paper doily with a circle. The difference between these cards is in the combination of patterns, colors, centerpiece images and sentiments. The first one has a Christmas Tree, the second has a deer, the third has simply a bow.

And one more card is not a traditional one. I colored the images of a cat and mice celebrating the New Year’s Eve with champaign! I love coloring Penny Black stamps.

Hope that you are having a lot of fun celebrating Holidays! :)
