Christmas on my mind!

Are you like me, happy to be creating cards that have a Christmas/Winter theme!  I love so many of the papers and elements for this season.
 First off, I used the Unscripted sketch for this week.

And the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger color combo! Isn't this photo of ornaments just wonderful!
 Love, love, love this collection by Pink Paislee and they have been giving away little kits all week long.  What is expecially fun about the dotted card base is that it is a piece of digital paper and I printed it out so the front and the back of the card are the same print.
 The two labels and the little snowman and snowlady are digital elements from the set.  Notice that punched border.  I used one of my Kreaxions 4-in-1 punches to create it.
 Next up, my Card Positioning Systems card.  That wonderful, vintage card is free from The Graphics Fairy. I just printed it on textured cardstock. I think that adds to the vintage feel. 

 The embossed piece behind that vintage card is embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder.  And if you look close, you can see the blue and green Flower Soft that is added around her shoes. 

The snowflakes are punched from a digital piece of "text" print paper.  I added bits of Flower Soft to the greens that she is holding and I also added some chunky glitter here and there.

 Another collection of Christmas/Winter papers that I am in love with are some from Bella Blvd.  This card is created from them. 
That circle is cut with my Kreaxions circle cutter. This cutter is the perfect tool to use to cut a ring like this.  I cut a larger circle first and then changed the size on the cutter and cut a smaller circle.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

So lovely. Great use of the textured paper to give that 2nd card a vintage feel. And I just love the 3rd card.
