Two More Non-Traditional Christmas Cards!

Well, I just loved this idea of non-traditional Christmas colors (especially with these beautiful snowflake ornaments) that I made two more cards with the same supplies using the sketches this week from 2S4Y.  The first I did using Laura's sketch #13, and the second card I did using this weeks bonus sketch from Kristen Swain.  What I think is so great about these cards is that they are both a card and a gift because the receiver can take the ornament off the card and hang it on their tree!  What do you think?




Patterned Paper: Basic Grey
Cardstock: CTMH (Pink Carnation)
Stamp: Sorry, I don't know (it is just one I found in my stash of "unknown" stamps).
Ink: White Pigment Ink (CTMH)
Accessories: Cricut "Home Accents" cartridge (Provo Craft), snowflake ornament (Target), ribbon & jewels (Michael's), sewing thread (craft supply)

Both are gorgeous!! What a cool idea to use an ornament. I bought some wooden snowflake ornaments from Target the other day and thought these might work on a card. Now I know. Congrats on the Fab 5!
