Christmas cards

As usual for me, it was down to the last minute for making Christmas cards, and those of you receiving them probably got them after Christmas :)

music paper card

On this card, I decided to try making my own background paper similar to the newest PTI paper, Sweet Symphony. I stamped the Musical Background from Waltzingmouse Stamps onto Distressed Dots (PTI) paper with black ink. The focal image was created with Fillable Frame #10 and a sentiment from Waltzingmouse's The Compliments of the Season.

And the inside also uses Compliments of the Season and the gorgeous scroll from PTI's Vintage Label set.

Christmas greetings

This card was made using some leftover Christmas patterned paper (Basic Grey and the Girl's Paperie, I think), Vintage Labels 14 set and Compliments of the Season, both from Waltzingmouse Stamps. A bit of sewing and some PTI ribbon.

I didn't have enough time to take pictures of the rest of the cards!

Thanks for stopping by!
