Festive Friday: Merry Christmas


Christmas is fast approaching.  Hard to believe another school year is starting and in a little under four months another Christmas will be here.  Kind of feels like madness how fast time seems to fly as we get older.  I have another CAS card for this week's Festive Friday card.  Pam Allen is guest designing with us.  Please stop by her Flickr account to check out her gorgeous cards.  I first thought chalkboard, but didn't have thicker fonts with Christmas sentiments that I wanted to use for a chalkboard technique.  I ended up combining a Verve sentiment with WPlus9 stamps.  
I made two versions of the same card...just slightly different.  Have a favorite?!  Not sure which one I prefer.  Think I might like it in the bottom right hand corner with the leaves on the top and bottom opposite corners of the sentiment...but decided to let it go...

  1. what am I missing...they look the same?? I think they are fabulous anyway, I love the way you have CASed the picture to perfection and the pops of red set the card off x

  2. I was going to say I like the second one best, but then I looked back at the first and decided I liked the sentiment nesting in the leaves. :-) I love them both.

  3. I don't have a favorite either, but I like that you made the red border pop with so much white.

  4. I like the top one (sentiment closer to the leaves) better. The elements are more integrated as one. Thanks for the inspiration Lynn!!

  9. Beautiful card Lynn! Love the foliage! Both are fabulous as always, but I am a sucker for sentiments that bleed into an image! ;)

  10. Oh I love these ... the first one with the sentiment close to the greenery is my favorite, I think. I really like how you've use funky red stars here instead of the expected round berries. Gorgeous!

  11. It looks like a lovely little mantle dressing, Lynn. I think I'm favoring number one but if I didn't see them together, I'd say they're both great.

  13. I love both, but the first one makes sense as the sentiment is grounded! The font is perfect for the inspiration pic! ox
