Merry & bright Christmas card

Hello there, 
Welcome to my blog and follow my work on social media. 

I have two simple Christmas cards where I mixed matched the stamps to make them along with inks and stencil. I made the cards like a sequence where the first card shows the elephant taking a Christmas tree home and the second card with a decorated Christmas home. 

Card 1 - Bring home Christmas

For my first card, I used elephant and the basket from Adorable runner stamp set and used Christmas tree and sentiment from Shine on stamp set. 
I stamped the images and coloured them using colour pencils and alcohol markers, I fuzzy cut them out and kept them aside.
I took a white notecard to ink up the sky and the land using Turquoise blue and emerald green 
I wanted to tuck the Christmas tree in the basket, so I made a slit in the tree and tucked it into the basket. 
I added the images to the inked notecard and using a black pen I attached the cycle and the basket
I used gold paint to add some splatters to the background
I finished the card by adding a sentiment and added it to a side fold notecard. 

Card 2 - Deck the halls

For my second card, I used the tree from Shine on stamp set along with sentiment and leaves and cherry along with decors from Adorable runner and gift boxes from Sibling festival.
I coloured the tree and the boxes and fuzzy cut it out and kept them aside. 
I took a white notecard and masked of some bit and inked one part with Raspberry and the other part of the notecard I stenciled with Bricks and used Mustard yellow and Chocolate brown
I added a small strip of gold cardstock and stamped the decors using Jet black ink and splattered gold paint
I added all the images together and added a sentiment and added it to a top fold note pad. 

Stay happy and keep crafting.
