A Muse Christmas Cards


Happy Monday!!

Here are a couple of A Muse Christmas cards I made over the weekend. Probably not something I'd make a bunch of, but just fun to play with my stamps and see what I can make. I put a little Lime Green Stickles on the leaves of the tree and some Christmas Red Stickles on the fire for some added sparkle. The A Muse Swirly Bracket is one of my favorite stamps that I don't use often enough. I adore A Muse's yummy ribbon too! It's fun to put a couple of them together! On the fire card, I tried to have the orange strip mimic the fire a bit by using the grass deco scissors to be like flames. I stamped the Stitched Pinwheel bg all over the orange piece too, (kinda hard to see), but it still felt it was missing something so I used my Lasting Impressions piercing template to give it some interest. Both cards were colored using Copic Markers.

I have a couple more A Muse Christmas cards to post tomorrow that I'm very excited to share with you, but you'll have to wait!! :D Check back if you're interested!!

These are both great cards!! The "pear tree" & "bracket" stamp are both on my wish list!! I love the sparkle on the leaves. It's an elegant A Muse card!

I really like the combination of paper & elements you used on the second card. The grass deco scissors mimic the flame well. In fact I was thinking that before I read that's what you were trying to capture!!

I'll definately check back for you other cards!!
