Paper Smooches Sparks: Designer Drafts


We're here to kick off another PaperSmooches Sparks Challenges.  There are plenty of adorable PaperSmooches holiday sets to inspire you with your cards.  And...we have a very fun sketch for you to play along with too!  I mentioned last week that I was almost done with my Christmas cards, but I'll still have several to share that I made in advance for upcoming challenges.  Today is no exception...two cards to share with you for the current challenge!
For my first card, I had a lot of fun masking off the bottom of the create a feel of a snow hill...there are a few snowflake crystals stamped on top.  Then I loved paper piecing the sweet snowman and adding the sentiment.  The three PaperSmooches sets I used were:  Freezy Fella, Christmas Sampler and Warm Hearts.

And a completely different take on the challenge...using Warm Hearts.  A country/whimsical feel with twine connecting the ornaments.

Come play along and be sure to check out the other design team members cards too!
