Christmas Trio

Good morning all!! I've had time to schedule my post this week so it's going up early! ;) I know, I know.

So here's the deal.. you know when you sit down to colour and it just ain't happening? No? Okay, just me then.. Well I had planned on making a card using a gorgeous Elisabeth Bell stamp and the new Quixotic Sketch, but I just couldn't get my colouring to work. :( Stoopid. So instead I aimed for something I've been making a lot of lately - Christmas cards.

I've been making SO many the past few weeks that I've even started turning to non Christmas themed products to make my projects. So I thought I'd show you all how to use a none Christmas related paper pack. My Minds Eye - Portobello Road. Gorgeous colours and designs, but so far from Christmas - so how did I go about it all?! It's simple.. I kept my cards.. well.. simple. :)

Here is a picture of all three cards together. I used some cream linen cardstock for each card base as it went so well with the patterned paper.

This is my fave card of the set. I think. I've used some striped patterned paper which I have cut at a diagonal - I find diagonal stripes so much more fun. For embellishment I added two teeny tiny chipboard baubles from MiC!

I hope you've enjoyed looking at this little Christmas set. I had real fun making it, and it was great to take a break from colouring. Enjoy your Wednesday whatever you're up to! :)
