Fancy Holiday cards

I created a couple more Christmas cards.  This time, these were just for fun, a bit of me time since my report cards are mostly done.

I used the Tinsel & Company by Teresa Collins.  Such a pretty collection.


I played along with the Paper Players challenge:

On this first card I used a MFT chicken wire die along with a couple of Silhouette cuts.

On this card I just layered bits and pieces from the collection... no stitching, can you believe it?!  It is for hubby and he won't even notice ;)

I used the sketch from the Fusion challenge:

I love these papers, too! The silver and gold look is so incredible. Love that touch of elegance for the holidays. Both of these are fabulous. Loving the Christmas tree and big banner and love the ice skates. Totally LOVE the little ice crystals you added to the skates! What an amazing detail!
