Three More Christmas Cards

It’s the 15th of the month, time for the challenge at QKR Stampede. Stop by the challenge, which is always “Anything Goes” and several prizes are awarded. Maybe you’ll be inspired to enter a card or two yourself?
My DT is a fun Christmas card featuring a tinsel wrapped feline with attitude!  The sentiment on the front, which is “borrowed” from a card that I found in a boxed set at Goodwill a few years ago, inspired the card’s theme. And the strands of tinsel are “borrowed” from this year’s Christmas tree. My hubby likes tinsel, so it still has plenty! 
·   Digi- Eureka Digital Stamp (Cool Cat) Also available in unmounted or cling mounted
·   Colored with Spectrum Noir Classique markers and Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen
·   Front Sentiment- “Don’t Get Your Tinsel in a Tangle” from a boxed card
·   Inside Sentiment-QKR (Merry Christmas)
·   Cardstock, background papers, and tinsel from my stash

My second card was created with items that were mostly free! The wonderful trees are a free digi from Beccy’s Place. The sheet music is a freebie I found on the web, and the sentiments are all upcycled from old Christmas cards. The only items that had any cost were the paper and the dies used to cut the blizzard of icy flakes!

·   Sheet Music background- Freebie from Harry Volker (White Christmas)
·   Sentiments- Upcycled from old Christmas cards
·   Cloud template cut from scrap paper, decorative chalks and a makeup sponge

My final card depicts the true reason for the season. The sweet baby Jesus is from a Beccy’s Place digi set named “Lamb of God.” He beautifully fits the sentiment, especially when nestled into the heart-shaped “O” of LOVE.  Some vellum, sparkly paper, and templates help finish off the card.
·   Digi- Beccy’s Place Digi Set (Lamb of God)

·   Front Sentiment- LoveSVG Freebie (Christmas Love)
