Creative Moments Challenge – Christmas

I have used a digistamp from Dr. Digis for today’s Creative Moments card.  I printed it three times and coloured the images.  I then fussy cut them and arranged them to look like a big bunch of mistletoe.  I curled the individual leaves to give the bunch some dimension, them glued it inside an aperture card.  I finished the card with a bow tied from a scrap of ribbon.

Boys at Christmas

Today’s card is sticking with the Christmas season but is designed for a boy.

I have used a digistamp and coloured him with Promarkers.  The strands of gems were from Tesco(!) as was the mirror card the image is mounted on.

Thou shalt call his name Jesus

Today’s card is stamped using Clarity stamp.  The image was stamped and embossed then cut out using a circle die from Spellbinders.  It was matted onto an embossed pale gold sheet and then holly leaves were die-cut from the backing paper and used to make a wreath around the stamped image.
