Husbands Christmas

I had a couple orders over Christmas for cards for husbands.

I had to use this lovey-dovey image from Lili of the Valley.

I used traditional colours on both cards, but switched it up a little each time. You know me, I can't want won't make the same card twice. 


I used Echo Park 'tis the Season on this card. I matted it onto some red cardstock.
I added a postage stamp edge around my image panel.
The sentiment was created using Lawn Fawn alpha stamps, and I die cut it using an oval die.
I added a die cut Christmas tree, a snow flake charm, and some green grosgrain ribbon.


For this card I used a paper pack from My Minds Eye Lost and Found Christmas, which has a slightly more vintage feel. Love that burgundy damask.

I added a scalloped edge to the circle image panel.

As for embellishments, there are some die cut vellum snowflakes, a little gingerbread man button from Doodlebug (LOVE) some khaki buttons, and some gold Liquid Pearls.


I coloured both images using my ProMarkers. I added Viva Decor Pearl to the snowflakes on the stamped image. I definitely see me using this image again for a few cards next year, and I think I'll be adding a night time sky to a few of them - it may make it feel even more lovey-dovey! Heh.

Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday. xo
