Christmas Cuties

I’ve got two more cards for you today using Crafty Secrets ”Merry Christmas” Creative Scraps and papers from my scrap stash.  I’m calling these two “Christmas Cuties” because the vintage images are just so stinkin’ cute.  They both use the same paper and basic layout.

First up is a little birdie singing Christmas carols:

  • I used an old Stampin’ Up! set for the holly leaves, then used a trio of mismatched red buttons for the berries.  A thin layer of Rock Candy Distress Stickles smeared on with my finger gives them a frosty appearance.

Next up, is our frosty little snowman friend.  He looks so happy to not be melting…he must live around here!  Again, using the same papers and basic layout as the first card.

  • The edges of the snowman image were inked with Broken China Distress Ink and a variety of Stickles highlight his body, nose, and holly trim.
