Christmas cards

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today playing with some amazing Robin's Nest papers.  When you think Christmas, you generally think red and green, but I thought I'd change it up a bit and go with browns and blues this year.

The assortment of papers from the Robin's Nest make it so easy to create some lovely cards.



I used the Reindeer Stripe Glitter paper and the Pinecone Glitter paper with this Merry Christmas card.  The stripes add a nice contrast to the glitter paper.  A ribbon was tied around the large panel before a smaller panel was added on top.  I also tied a smaller sentiment to the ribbon with twine.


Merriest Wishes uses beautiful shades of blue and brown.  The base of the card is gray cardstock and the next layer is  Winter Retreat Glitter Swirl Cardstock.


I created a tag and used the Reindeer Stripe Glitter paper on top.  Since this is double sided paper, I was able to use both sides of the paper, so I added a strip of reindeers on top.


Some ribbon finished the tag and a sentiment was added to the right corner.


Thanks for stopping by today.

Steph
