Inspiration from Paper Crafts Magazine - Day 2 - Christmas

Welcome back!

Today it is Lindsey's turn to pick a card for inspriation from the Sept/Oct issue of Paper Crafts magazine.  Her choice was the very versatile card by Ellie Augustin on page 46 called Brew Some Fun Card.  Wow, what a great layout to work with!! 

I was so inspired I made 2 cards - one that followed the sketch very closely and another that followed it very loosly.  For both, I focused on the general layout.

I adore this Anna Griffin designer paper. And this little sprig of holly is probaby my most used Christmas stamp (if you can believe that or not!!)

This card is a much looser take on the layout.  The designer paper and die cuts are from the Holly Jolly paper pack from My Minds Eye (out last year). 
Okay, now off to Lindsey's blog to see what her card turned out looking like.  Do you think she also made a christmas card????  Let's go see....

Thanks for dropping by!

The elegant paper on that first card is perfect with your little holly stamp! (Is it kind of like your Christmas equivalent of strawberries? :P) And the second card is gorgeous, too, with the bigger holly and the twine. Thanks for a fun couple of weeks, Donelda!

Both cards are great, the first is my fav if I had to pick. Love your little tag on the first card, and the paper is beautiful for sure.

Donelda, both cards are beautiful. Love the simply style and the DP is fantastic.
