Winter Wonderland Set

Hello, friends.  A special thank you and welcome to my newest followers.  Today I have made a set of CAS Christmas cards.

The image is called O Winter Trees from Gingerloft at the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet.  The sentiment is from Fresh Brewed Designs.  I printed the image and sentiment in three different colours and added glitter to the large tree.  I wish you could see the glitter - it isn't showing up very well in the photos. 

I added Offray ribbon and mounted the images with foam tape.  The embossing folders are Cuttlebug Snowflakes and Couture Creations Sugarplum Ball.  Here are photos of each individual card.

Oh Kitty, my oh so talented friend, this set of Christmas cards is stunning. The embossed card is beautiful and adds such richness to showcase the wonderful colouring and glittering of your image ......I imagine that they look even more special and spectacular in reality but I did see your beautiful glitter work when I enlarged your photos. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )

Beccy said...

These are so beautiful KT, I absolutely love that image! I'm glad you decided to go with a fairly simple design as the images really are so wonderful. I can't decide which colour I like best... they all work so well. I really like the addition of the glitter on the large tree, it makes it look frosty. Beautiful work!

Thank you so much for making such an effort and entering this weeks Challenge over on the LEJ Designs Challenge blog LEJ - Challenge 81 - Buttons Bows or Beads.

What a beautiful set of really crisp Christmas cards. The image is stunning and so detailed. Love the different colours you chose and matched perfectly with the ribbon/bows. The bossing looks deep and wonderful and the hint of glitter on the images finish them off perfectly.

Currently we run weekly challenges with prizes of wonderful LEJ Designs images and a small crafty prize from one of our amazing sponsors.
I really hope you will join us again for more of our future challenges....keep your eyes peeled for things to come ;-)
