Christmas in July challenge - Cupcake Craft Challenge

More challenges hope you aren't getting tired of them yet. This one works for the Cupcake Craft Challenge to create a pastel Christmas card. It also works for the Unscripted Sketches #65. I used Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses for most of the card. The base is PTI Blue shimmer cardstock and the stamp set used for the sentiment was Holiday Button Bits. Everything else was basic grey rubons, paper pack etc. Except for the little tags which I found at Walmart in the office section. The ink used was palette toile pink and PTI True Black.






My second card used another sketch from Unscripted Sketches - this one was a bonus sketch.

I just rotated the sketch for my card. I used Imaginesence Polar Paper pack for this card. Very quick and simple.

I'm getting use to seeing more and more Christmas cards now. I love the first one with the soft pastels and the three little tags off to the side. Great sentiment to match with the hot cocoa images too!

Both design are great and how fun to see a bit of holiday inspiration! Love the first one with the little tags--cute touch!

Angy, you've created two fantastic cards! I love the papers you've chosen and those little tags are darling. I'm going to have to check the office section on my next trip to Walmart.

Oooops! My comment for this post ended up in the one below :0) I do truly like the layout you created there - especially the floral flourish under the photo - great placement. (Sorry - now my comments are totally mixed over :0)
