Christmas Crunch Sunday #3

Week three already? Yikes. I have two cards to show you this week, although they are very different, they both use the same paper pack from Basic Grey and the same stamp set from Inkadinkadoo. I thought I would try to show you how versatile single products are if you use a bit of imagination and use them differently.

Merry Christmas

Ohh yum!! Isn't that embossing folder gorgeous? And used on the Bazzill Bling cardstock, oOoo - result!! The poinsettia on that paper is just too lovely!! I only used a slither of the paper - gotta save on that! Hehe. I love the colours in the Jovial collection - really traditional with a hint of teal-y/turquoise.

Ornate Snowman

Isn't he a cutie?! I love his swirly scarf. :) I had to get a little stitching in their somewhere, I used an old Mojo sketch - but flipped it upside down. This card shows off that lovely teal-y/turquoise colour as a border around the snowman.
