Still Working on Christmas Cards

 Trying to finish up my Christmas cards and drew inspiration from several challenges.

This was the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  The background is navy pearl cardstock and used a snowflake flourish die with glittered cardstock and added the sentiment in red from Concord & 9th.

Next uses the sketch from CAS Colours & Sketches.  I used one of my favorite Clearly Besotted sets.  Colored with alcohol markers.

This was inspired by AAA Cards using the beautiful combination of Black, White and Gold.  Die cut the big snowflake from white cardstock and covered with Stickles in Frosted Lace.  Inked the base banner with Golden Glitz ink and added the black layer with the sentiment embossed in gold ep.  Layered onto a piece of soft gold cardstock and layered onto a white card base.

And one more inspired by Can You Handle the Pressure? and Time Out Challenge.  Inked the raised area of the embossing folder with white ink and embossed onto light blue cardstock.  Die cut the sentiment from white glittered cardstock and mounted onto a white card base.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
