Holiday Cards....Day 2

Today's cards.....more simple easy designs, and
again, all from that same awesome paper set...
the Echo Park (EP) Season's Greetings collection.

These 2 cards are a similar design....but have a very
different look.

The card above, starts with a kraft base. The strip
on the left, with the poinsettias, is from the border
strip paper in the set....I just love the variety on
that sheet for making cards!! The punched edge
adds a bit of elegance to the card, along with the
pretty bling swirl from Want2Scrap. I used the
"Merry Christmas" sentiment, from the EP
Season's Greetings chipboard.

I did "fussy cut" the large poinsettia that is
under the word "Christmas" from the same
poinsettia paper the base piece is cut from.
The papers were inked with Vintage Photo
Distress Ink.

The next card:

starts with a red cardstock base, I added the green/dot
paper, a rectangle of red in the middle, and then layered
on another piece of the border strip....that pretty holly,
then simply added the Season's Greetings sticker from
the set, a bit of Doodlebug Twine wrapped on the left
side, and Want2Scrap red pearls finish the card off, as
yummy berries, and an accent on the upper left corner.

Hope you enjoy today's cards....and maybe get a little
inspiration to make your own cards this year! It can
be a fun, quick project, and friends and family
will appreciate the special touch!!
