MME Christmas On Market Street Card And Ornament Exchange ~ FotoBella DT

     I hope you had a wonderful and festive holiday, and wishing you happiness and health for the New Year! The FotoBella Design Team recently had a fun exchange to make a card and rosette ornament for one member of the team. Here's what I made and sent to Apryl, using My Mind's Eye Christmas On Market Street I Want It All Bundle!

     Cutting a circle from the gold dotted vellum, I adhered it to a white card lightly misted with gold. Around the circle I embossed the stitching with a Prima stamp, and added some chipboard pieces and Paper Tape.

     Inside of the card I used some more vellum, chipboard, and Paper Tape with the Journaling Cards, which gave me the perfect spot for writing.

          To make the ornament I used white cardstock and punched the snowflake edge, spraying it again with some gold. For the center rosette I used the same gold striped vellum that's inside the card topped with some chipboard, and strung with some gold fiber. 

Here's a close-up!

     And the back where I added a snowflake from the Mixed Bag with a red Brad in the center!

December Birthday Card ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     Since Christmas is my husband's favorite holiday, I decided to combine the colors, along with black, for the birthday card that I made for him!

     I was inspired by this sketch from Your Next Stamp, used for the December Card Challenge at Scrapbook.com.

     The main image was stamped and embossed in black using the All Things Of Nature stamp from Red Rubber Designs, onto white cardstock colored with some mists and sprays. For the sentiment I used Sophisticated Sentiments. Then I used the Speckle Background stamp over it, embossed in white, for a snowy effect, which I also used along all of my edges. The rest of the papers, and the snowflake transparency are from Little Yellow Bicycle's Once Upon a Christmas line.

     I'm also entering this into Sweet Stampin' Challenge for the Snow Time theme. Thanks for your visit!
