Again most of the elements are from my recycling project.
The first card I wanted to use some Kraft cards and so used a lovely backing paper from Raspberry Road (a freebie with one of the craft magazines) I added a little bit of hessian,to one corner and then stuck the word Noel cut from a card from the recycling bag using a plain oval die. I then added the holly leaves and gems along with a paper flower and a bakers twine bow.
For my second interpretation of the First Noel I created a card to celebrate a baby's first Christmas
I used a pretty blue gingham backing paper for the backing and added this cute polar bear, on the original card he was looking at a star but I replaced the star with a wooden snowflake painted with white acrylic paint and covered in stickles. I placed it so that it looks as if he is waiting to catch it on his nose, The sentiments I did on the computer.
I am entering the cards into the following Challenges
