Not Square & Black/White Christmas

Two Christmas cards that I worked on that had two very different themes.  The first is a card for Kenny K which is to not be a square card.  I made a 5 X 7 card as a base, but then have a 4 X 5.5 Core-dinations tan paper that I embossed with the Tim Holtz brick embossing folder to look like a chimney.  I used the Mrs. Claus digital image and made a book mark to put inside a sewn pocket that I made out of the embossed folder that I sanded.

Patterned Paper: Basic Grey, Mistletoe & Pear
Cardstock: Bazzil & Core-dinations
Markers: Copics & Gelly Roller Stardust Clear
Rhinestones: The Paper Studio
Ribbon, thread, sandpaper
Embossing Folder: Tim Holtz

The next card is for Karen's Doodles which is to have paper that is black and white Christmas.  I used the Bigsby Gift digital image and one of my favorite papers- My Mind's Eye - Lush.  I won 2nd place for this card -YIPEE!!!

Cardstock: Bazzil & Core-dinations
Brad & Rhinestones: Recollections
Flower: Prima
Stamp: Merry Christmas, Hero Arts
Ink: Memento, Black Tuxedo
Markers: Copic
Nestabilities: Small Oval, Small Scalloped Oval
