A Fresh Dose of Christmas Inspiration
My children have informed me that that there are only 81 days until Christmas. On the one hand, as I explained to them, that is nearly a fourth of a year. But on the other hand, well, I'm thinking I really had better get to work! Here's a fresh dose of Christmas inspiration for those who need it, like me. :-)
This first card was made by Becky Peterson, using the "Oh Hoppy Day" set. She colored the image with pencils, giving it such a warm, soft feel.
Melissa Craig made a very elegant card using the "Beauty of the Season" set. If you look closely you can see that she has layered her textured pieces, as well as the pieces of the poinsettia for dimension. Such a simple but effective way to add visual interest to a card!
Finally, here is a darling card by Lori Finch, using the "Country Christmas" set. I really like how she carried the country feel of this image out into the papers and accents she used, giving it a warm, homey feel.
I hope these have given a little Christmas spark to your imagination today! 81 days...it's going to go by so quickly!
