Christmas Cards using papers from my scrap box

Yes, two more cards today from my scrap box which will be heading to Tracey Hanshaw and then to the Aussie Troops overseas.  This time I have collected all my purple strips to create a background for this cute little image called Michua and his Christmas Tree.  Sorry I don't know where I found this but if you do please let me know as I would like to link to the owner.  I have coloured Michau with my Aquamarkers and aquabrush.  To make it more Christmassy I have added some Kindy Glitz to the edge of the tree and to her hat.  Finished the card with a couple more layers of card and a silver Christmas Greeting sticker from the Sticker Store.

This bright and cheery Christmas card was fun to make.  I dug out the pink and purple scraps and ran the pink through the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I added little silver sticker stars and holly bunches to the corners.  Then I used this terrific clear Christmas tree sticker.  Firstly I peeled it from the back and added the little stars and circles which remained on the backing from the circle and star shapes along the edge of the tree.  Hope that makes sense.  Then I stuck the tree to the green card and cut around it.  Added a little brown for the pot, then attached a silver star.  I adhered the tree to the card with 3D foam just to make it pop.  Finished with the perfect Christmas greeting sticker.  All the stickers are from the Sticker Store.

Have a great Friday everyone.
