Christmas blessings

Hello crafty friends!
Happy Saturday!

Today I am sharing with you a couple of clean and simple Christmas cards.

This is the first card.

This week CASology theme is heart.
The 'Jesus family' looked like the shape of heart to me.

To create this card, I 1) Stamped the sentiment on the white cardstock using embossing ink and a blessed Christmas stamp set from Paper Smooches, silver heat embossed it. 2) Stamped poinsettia image from Holiday petal and leaves stamp set from Hero arts and colored it with Copic markers and wink of stella. 3) Stamped the family image 3 times, made thicker and colored it with Copic markers and wink of stella. 4) Mounted all elements as shown to a top-fold card using double sided tape.

 This is my second card.

I made the card using a sketch from Freshly made sketches #210.

To create this card, I 1) Stamped the sentiment on the white cardstock using embossing ink, silver heat embossed it. 2) Die cut three stitched circles using Memory box dies from white cardstock. 3) Stamped three Christmas images using a Joy in the air stamp set from Flourishes and colored them with Copic markers and wink of stella brush.

I used this sketch ;

God bless you all!

  10. Gorgeous cards, Gloria. I love that sweet nativity card but unsure where the paper piecing is for the challenge at Less is More?
