I Think I'm Getting Sick of Christmas Cards LOL!

Good morning!

You may be happy to know, that YES, I am finally getting sick of Christmas cards,,,,,

I have two to show you today,,,,,,,

and at LEAST for a couple days,,,,,,I'm going to try and concentrate on fall cards LOL. For a few days. Hopefully. LOL.

The first is this pink, gray/silver and black card,,,,,,,,I'm not sure I like it,,,,,,,,but it's definitely a striking color combo,,,,

Card Recipe:

Papers: Recollections
Stamps: Justrite (snowman and sentiment), Inkadinkado (snowflakes)
Inks: Versafine Onyx black
Dies: Spellbinders classic large round, picot edge circles, and Cottage Cutz Tea time doily
Embossing folder: Cuttlebug
Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbon

My second card is this Poinsettia Card,,,,,,,,,,,again, not sure I like it, but the colors (more traditional) are pretty striking,,,,,,,

I absolutely love the focal point,,,,,,,,,it's striking. I should have used a different ink to stamp the sentiment on the DP though. Hmmmmmmmmmmm.

Here's a close up of that,,,,,,,,,you can see how I should have used something else,,,,,,,,,,,live and learn, I guess,,,,,,,

And this last pic is a close up of the Poinsettia and focal point,,,,,,,

I think that poinsettia is my favorite part of the whole card,,,,,,love that die!

Card Recipe:
Papers: K and Company scraps
dies: Spellbinders Ironwork Motifs, Parisian motifs, postage stamps, layered poinsettia
Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbon
Ink: Versafine
