More A Muse Christmas Cards

Hey there! Here are the other 2 Christmas cards I talked about on yesterday's post. I hope I didn't disappoint with the suspense!! :D

I'm not sure if I've already seen the farm Christmas idea before, but I was thinking about what I could do with an animal (thinking Patch) and a Christmas tree and I had a RAK from a SCS friend of the barn image that I hadn't used yet so it prompted me to pull out the cow and pig and make a scene. The barn, cow and pig are all cut out and glued on with my Quickie Glue pen. I stamped the cow and pig on the main white piece too, so I didn't have to cut out the tails. I wanted them overlapping the barn and the tree to get some dimension without masking. The ornaments on the tree are just dots of Stickles. On the snowflake brad and fire rhinestone brad I cut off the prongs and stuck them on with mini glue dots, thanks Novell for that tip! The ribbon is from Jo Ann's. Images colored with Copics.

The Mistletoe card is super easy and looks cute IRL. I used 4 SU! punches on this card, the Tab Punch, Scallop Circle, 1 1/4" circle and 1 3/8"circle. Not sure if you've seen the tutorials on different blogs or maybe even SCS, but to make the larger circle, you punch the tab punch, then rotate it 180 degrees and punch it again, makes a perfect large circle. I learned that at a local SU! gathering. The scallop circle is attached to the inside of the card with dimensionals. I pierced the scallops and added a little Stardust Pen to the berries.

Thanks for stopping by!!
