Green for Christmas

I only needed two more cards for Christmas and the Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenge for the month of December was to use green in our cards. The first one is a tri-shutter card:

What always amazes me about these cards is how they fold down to 4.25 X 5.5 inches. I have entered this in the Christmas Card Challenge here.

Second up is a card made using a resist technique.

I dry embossed the holly spray in a Cuttlebug folder, then white embossed music onto the raised holly. Then I coloured with Distress Inks and overstamped more music on the edges of the card with Vintage Photo ink. The holly berries are red Stickles. The text is also white embossed. 

This is my last post before Christmas so let me wish you all a very Merry Christmas. I hope it is relaxing and enjoyable, and that you find some time to create something, too! Thanks for visiting.
