My Besties Christmas Cards

Hi everyone!  I hope all is well.  We took our annual trip to Cape May, New Jersey, this past week for their Victorian Christmas.  All the old Victorian homes are beautifully decorated.  It is such a perfect quaint town.

Today, I have two cards to share using a My Besties stamp in two different color palettes.  First up is a card with traditional Christmas colors.  The sweet image is colored with Copics.

The papers, border strip and rosette are from an older K&Co line once again.  The flowers and leaves are a mix of Prima and my stash.  Stickles were added to the fur trim on the girl's outfit.  Liquid Pearls were used to simulate snowflakes.

For my next card, I decided to go with a pink, teal and gold color palette.  The pattern paper is from Bo Bunny's Candy Cane Lane, adhered to gold foil paper and then attached to a white cardstock base.  The image was cut using a Tim Holtz stitched oval die, edge inked with Inka Gold and mounted to the card with foam dots.  The gold bow is Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper.  The flowers are a combination of Recollections, Spare Parts and my stash.

This card is nice for a winter theme as well.  I love these soft colors, too.

Well, this is only the beginning of my Christmas card making.  I've only completed one other card, so you know the remaining days will be spent by me in a frenzy trying to get enough cards made!  But, I do enjoy the process (not the stress!).  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I appreciate each and every comment you leave.  Have a wonderful week ahead!
