Christmas Inspiration: Day 4




It's Friday eve!  Woohoo!  A quick post today...three more Christmas cards to share with you.  First is a card inspired by Heather Campbell's card on p. 27 of Holiday Cards & More.  I love the way she create the poinsettia's from the PaperSmooches reflection set.


I love everything that Cristina Kowalcyk designs.   Her cards in Holiday Cards & More were no exception.  This card is inspired by her card on page 18.

On this card..I used vellum for the hills.  The vellum treatment was inspired by the tags that Tina Basa created on page 90.  And that wraps up this week's Christmas inspiration!  I hope you've seen a few things that you like this week!

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for another CAS-ual Fridays challenge...and hmmm...there is some fun brewing there too!  Check out the badge on the top right of my blog!  Can't wait to share CAS-ual Fridays "little sister" with you soon!

I just picked up this issue at Michaels today and now I'm really excited to get looking at it! All this inspiration you mention, and I love the cards you created! Love the neat poinsettias...I have that set and didn't think poinsettia, but I love it! Then I love the berries on the stick trees, and the last card is stunning!
