Merry and Bright

Strings of Lights

Merry and Bright

This cheerful card was fast and fairly easy to make. The colourful background is not in the typical Christmas colours, but it gives a modern youthful look to the card.

Frosty, Shimmery Snowglobes

Snowman Globe 

Everyone loves a snow globe. These ones are no exception. For these ones, I used acetate for the glass to make them more realistic.

I kept the backgrounds simple so as not to detract from all the details inside the globes. For both cards I used a snowflake sky that is shimmery. It provided just the right background for the snowman and the church.

Country Church Snow Globe

Each globe has sparkly snow inside, but the Peace globe is an actual shaker. Another time, I would not bother with fussing to make it an aperature. It was cute enough without that feature, but the OCD in me always strives to make things as realistic as possible. Sometimes, simpler is best.
