The first one uses this beautiful little church scene. I think it is so sweet - and notice that little snowman over there on the side!
This was SUCH fun to color in with my copic markers. Once everything was assembled and in place, with my quickie glue pen I put in a thin line of glue on the edges of the roof and the snow lines, then dusted it with Dazzling Diamonds. The background is Soft Sky Designer prints paper from SU which I then ran through my cuttlebug.
Oh Wild Wasabi and Soft Sky, how I've missed you.
For the last several releases, I've also gotten into the habit of making at least one clean and simple card. And this time, it was the pointsetta from this lovely set that caught my eye.
In addition to snowmen, pointsettas just scream christmas to me, and it was a wonderful excuse to use a bit more of that luscious Pure Luxury Ribbon. It coordinates just perfectly with Stampin Up's real red.
Accidentally, I ran the cardstock through the cuttlebug embossing folder the wrong way, but then decided I actually really liked the debossed look here. The sentiments in this set have such a lovely font, and with the deep red rubber, you get such a nice, guaranteed, even impression.
I have another clean and simple card that I'm saving for the launch party. I love this effect -- clean and simple can still be super cute. And you know, I'm prone to mass production efforts, so that's key!
