On the window card, I put blue vellum behind the window die, and I used Stickles to represent berries on the wreath. The wreath is cut from a green snippet. I made the card for 52 Christmas Card Throwdown's challenge -- Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. The vellum is both old (from the last time vellum was all the rage in stamping) and blue. The wreath die is the something new. Both the brick-embossed piece and the window were RAKs, so they are sort of "borrowed."
I made a second, similar card in blue and white to qualify for Sarn's "Rudolph Day", which requires not one but two Christmas cards. That card also used a snippet for the wreath. The sentiment is a cheap stamp from Michaels. It is not mounted straight on the wood, and I always end up stamping it crooked, so I decided to do it at an angle so the wonkiness would look planned.
I'm entering these challenges:
52 Christmas Card Throwdown -- old, new, borrowed, blue
