Holiday Cheer!!!

Hello!!!
I'm gearing up for the holidays....mainly Christmas card making part.

If I don't start now I'll  be way behind on my Christmas card mailings, as I need to mail it quite early from India, International mail takes forever to reach the destination .
I played with my new HeroArts goodies...

I love love love this Reindeer image....super cute!!
THIS sentiment set is my current favorite one.....and  check out the  chevron -sparkle background...awesome isn't it!!!
I used some WOW!!! Embossing Glitter and Opaque White embossing powder for this card!
Here is the list of the new HA stamps I used for this card...

This card is for the following challenges...

Next one is also based on HeroArts sketch...

I used the Snowflakes & Edges background stamp and the sentiment from Miracle Of the Holidays.
The DPs are from Simple Stories-Handmade Holiday collection.
I'm a big fan of Simple Stories stuff...they're just beautiful!!

I used a Label Sticker from Same Simple Stories collection to stamp my sentiment on.
Changed the sentiment format by partially inking it and stamping it with different inks.
Just added a punched snowflake and a button tied with MayArts-Jute twine for some texture.

This card is for the following challenges...
ABC Christmas Challenge : Anything Goes.
Christmas Crafting : Buttons & twine.


Thanks for stopping by!!

I absolutely love both these cards as they are in traditional colours in a vintage kinda way;) Love the design with the cut out layersand clustered sentiment in front. Thanks for playing at ABC Christmas Challenge and good luck. Hope to see you back next wednesday for a new challenge. Bettina xx
