 Hi Everyone. Today I have a couple of Christmas cards that use the same new greeting on two very different cards.

The first one features the Heartache at Christmas Greeting as the focal point. It was stamped with Archival Jet Black ink onto white CS and then The Poinsettia Vine Corner image was stamped on two opposite corners and colored with Copics. After die cutting with a SB die, it was attached to the red layer that was embossed with a Paper Studio EF, then onto the green layer and then the white card base. I felt it needed something in those other two corners, so I stamped the Holly Jingle Bell image onto white CS with Memento Black ink, colored just the holly with Copics, fussy cut and added them with Matte Medium. Some red glitter Nuvo drops were added for the berries.

My second card only uses the last line of the Heartache at Christmas greeting. I purchased this snowman die while on vacation back in September and decided it would pair nicely with this greeting.

I started with white CS and sponged on some TH Distress Oxide inks after stamping the snowflake background with Versamark ink and heat embossing it with clear EP. Next the snow banks were created with some Fawn Lawn dies and the snowman was added after adding some Nuvo white Blizzard drops onto the snow banks. The partial greeting was stamped with Archival Jet Black ink and the three snow flakes were die cut with an IO snowflake die. Some blue half pearls were added to the centers of the snowflakes.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Your cards today are fantastic! The border looks lovely with the addition of the glittery bits and the sentiment is so touching! Love that snowman on your second card too! He's super cute :) I'm smiling right now, because I did the same thing on my cards for tomorrow's post, with regards to the sentiment that I used. Just a portion and then the whole thing! Great minds :)
