Two cards...

Hello again,
it didn't quite happen to post again the next day but here are a couple of cards I did recently...
I had a christmas fair and it took a bit of my time. Maybe I can share a few pics of the fair with you soon.
This first card is made with a lovely Hanglar stamp coloured with Copic markers. The background was stamped with SU frost white fluid ink onto white card and coloured with Distress inks afterwards. Unfortunately I can't remember where I got the stamp from, it's an unmounted red rubber I bought from the US but can't remember the name, sorry!
The scalloped border is cut from Core'dinations with a PTI die. The mat is also Core'dinations and the ribbon is adhesive backed ribbon from Martha Stewart Crafts. Sentiment is from the PTI set "Signature Greetings" from Dawn McVey.





This next card is rather simple and I took inspiration from a card I saw on a blog a little while ago. Unfortunately I can't remember which one it was, if you know, please let me know so I can give credit! I cut the nativity scene on my cricut and I stamped a greeting on white card and stuck it to the front. The stamp is from the PTI set "A wreath for all seasons" and I drew lines to anchor it on the card.




I hope you like my offerings today and come back soon for more!
