A Christmas Card and a Thank You

This was a very simple Christmas card I made to try out one of the new Studio G stamp sets. I like the simplicity of the natavity scene and the cross in the design. I also like that you could easily mask out the cross if you wanted. The sentiment also came in the set. The backgound is Inkadinkado Damask which I just love! So pretty...I inked it with Water Lily Green from Palette. The flowers are from Mikes (the bridal ones) and I used the new Studio G glitter glue for a bit of red. The ovals were cut with my Nesties.

The Thank You card was also simple as I needed to make several (10). I first embossed with a classic square with my Nesties, stamped some polka dots with Pure Poppy ink and Polka Dot Basics (PTI) and matted it behind the scalloped circle. The Thank you and image is from Kim Huges set "Cute Curls", which is a super cute set:) I went over the vine and leaf with a green glitter pen and added some red to the ladybug and dotted the middle of each scallop. I inked the edges of the scallop and was done. I like how it came out, clean and simple but I think the embossing makes it look more finished.

Thanks for looking and I love to read your comments!
