 I made two Christmas cards to share for today.  This first card uses the newly released Merry & Bright, Holiday Greetings, and Peace on Earth.  I also used Scroll Plain Jane and Scroll Cut Above and From the Heart dies. I combined some Simple Stories Homemade Holiday designer papers.  I added some ink distressed  corrugated cardboard and a few tiny gold pearls.  I finished with a seam binding bow.  I am using this week's Mojo Sketch 266.
 



For my second card, I chose to go for a more CAS styled Christmas card.  I am using Verve's newly released Joy to the World Plain Jane along with Making a Statement and Verve's Cut Above Tag Rectangle and Classy Label dies.  Again, I used some more of the Simple Stories Homemade Holidays designer papers.  I finished with a seam binding bow topped with a chunky metallic gold pearl.  I am using Retro Sketches #36.



As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the hop!  Next up is the super talented  Jen d.'s Blog.
