I loved the colors for Kristina Werner's color challenge this week. They made me think of Thanksgiving and fall. I figured I would give it a go. I also figured out that I should NOT do these challenges after 11 pm. Here's why: I love how my card came out, but this morning, in the light of day, I realized I used Burgundy instead of Eggplant! Oh well - Here's the card anyway.
I didn't post these on my other blog. I wanted to wait until they were mailed so no one would get a "sneak peek". Well, I can't stand it!! I had to post them somewhere. I am pretty happy with how they turned out this year.
I ended up making 3 different cards this year. Usually I just make one, but I was having too much fun this year. This is the first one:
The bow turned out to make putting this card in an envelope impossible, so this is my card that will go on hand delivered gifts and to the neighbors.
Here is a close up of the star. As you can see I had a BLAST with my cuttlebug on this card!
Here is the second card I made. It is much more USPS friendly :) I loved how the paper had just a little pink. Kind of a fun holiday twist.
And finally, card #3. A little origami tree and some fun paper from my Stampin' Up "I Wish" Simply Scrappin' Kit. This one looks like alot of work, but it actually went together pretty quick.
If you peek before Christmas, at least you'll be surprised at which one of the three you receive!! Let the holiday fun begin!!!
