Christmas with Certain Celery & Cranberry Crisp

It's never too early to start working on Christmas cards. These two are non-traditional cards using different colours and stamps; but it was fun.

-- Card 1 --
Stamps: Scribble This, All Year Cheer, Paisley
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Cranberry Crisp, Certain Celery, Glossy White
Ink: Cranberry Crisp, Certain Celery, Basic Black
Accessories: Circle & Oval Punch, Brad, Ribbon
Card is fairly basic, but I love this kind of layout. I've stamped the flower twice on Glossy White, coloured in with blender pen and ink and then cut out. Flowers are layered on top of each other and then I've attached with a brad. The sentiment comes from All Year Cheer and I've picked out the word 'joy' and used the oval punch to accent it. I couldn't leave it without doing some paper piercing using the Mat Pack.

-- Card 2 --
Stamp Sets: Scribble This, All Year Cheer
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Certain Celery, Cranberry Crisp
Ink: Certain Celery, Cranberry Crisp
Accessories: Spiral Punch, White gel pen, Ribbon, Mat pack
Another simple layout which was fun to work with. Certain Celery cardstock is stamped with Scribble This and I've high-lighted it with the white gel pen. I've also stamped on the Very Vanilla cardstock and then used the Spiral punch for some added interest. The sentiment comes from All Year Cheer which I've stamped on Very Vanilla and then matted onto Cranberry Crisp. I've made the edges rough by running my finger nail along each edge, a very handy technique to know!! And in the top corner there's some paper piercing, of course.

Hope you love them.
