Preparing for Christmas 2020 - April

Hello Everyone,

I have two more cards to add to my stash this month, woohoo! I am so glad that I have managed to stay on track so far, even though secretly I'd love to be making more than two a month but hey - two is better than none, right? :o)

First off, we have a simple card with a deer/reindeer. This was inspired by a sketch challenge over at the MFT blog, and - simple or not - I think it turned out quite nicely. I had a million and one problems with aligning everything straight, I don't know what was happening... I didn't manage to fix everything (one of he disadvantages or using super strong adhesive, I guess...), but it's more less okay now:




The second card is super fun, as it incorporates the recent new stamp set by Concord and 9th - Oh snap! The second I saw that camera, I knew that I would want to use it for more than birthday cards, and I think I succeeded with this Christmas card. The paper and embellishments add a bit of a "vintage" feel to it, which I think goes nicely with the Polaroid. 






You can see it in action here:


Isn't it super fun? 

So here we go, two more to post out in December!

Stay safe,
Mirella
