Day 2 is here!!

Here are the cards for day 2!!

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

These 2 cards are a similar design....but 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 (I used an EK Success border punch on the
swirled cranberry cardstock in the kit) adds a bit of elegance
to the card, along with the pretty bling swirl from Want2Scrap.
Have you check out their bling? Wow, it is awesome....and the
price is certainly right!!! Kim sells it at Cutter's can
find it HERE. The "Merry Christmas" sentiment, is 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
on this card is cut from. The papers were inked with Distress
Ink, in the Vintage Photo color.

This next card:
starts with a red cardstock base, I added the green/dot EP paper,
a rectangle of red in the middle, and then layered on another piece
of the border strip....that pretty holly print, then simply added the
Seasons Greetings sticker from the EP sticker sheet in the set,
a bit of twine wrapped on the left side, and more of the gorgeous
Want2Scrap....this time red pearls finish the card off, as yummy
berries, and an accent on the upper left corner. can easily "pop" these cards up a notch with some glossy
accents on the berries, or by embossing the red layer on that last card,
etc. But I was trying for quick and simple, but yet impact!

Hope you like today's cards.....let me know what you think by making
a comment here and also at Cutter's Creek HERE, and you'll be entered
for the blog candy!
