Holiday's day 5!!

Are you tired of me yet?? Ok, I've gotta, these
are two of my fav cards. Again, how easy can you get....both just
a layer of pretty paper from the Echo Park Season's Greetings
collection (the 2nd card, I roughed up the edges a bit), on a base
of kraft cardstock. Both cards a second layer, corners rounded,
inked with Vintage Photo ink (the top, kraft cardstock, the bottom
card, the gorgeous stripe).

The top card....that center piece is just one of the journal boxes in
the's so pretty on it's own! A little twine, the wreath
and sentiment from the sticker sheet in the collection, a bit of
glossy accents on the berries on the journal card and wreath, and
it's done. Simply gorgeous.

The finish on this second card:

Yep, another journal box....those make card making a snap!!! Then I
added the crinkle ribbon (I pleat that using score tape) and bow, and
topped it with a snowflake sticker, the large chipboard snowflake, and
a chipboard button from the collection as well, tied up with twine. A
few of the red Want2Scrap Pearls, the "happy holidays" sentiment
from the alpha sticker sheet in the kit.....and it's also complete!

Still getting inspired? Maybe for a little weekend crafting, I hope!

  1. I absolutely LOVE your "Happy Holidays" card. I have been following your posts all week since I just picked up this Echo Park collection and still have a TON of holiday cards to make. I have been a follower for sometime. Thanks for the giveaway....they are always fun.

  2. They just keep getting better as the week goes on. The glossy accent on the berries really make them pop! At first I thought they were shiny buttons.

  3. PS - Thanks for the reminder to click the follow button. I'd thought I'd already done that. Lol! - blue

  4. Two more great cards Laura! I will be scrap-lifting LOL

  5. These cards are just beautiful. The folks who receive them will be so happy with them. I love the EP holiday packs. I have 4 6x6 packs but now I wish I had also ordered the embellie kits also.

  6. These cards are so cute! I also love the journaling cards!

  7. Great cards again, love Echo Park.

  8. So Beautiful! I love both and cant decide which I love the best.


  9. With red being my favorite color (this shade in particular), I am loving these cards. You make them seem so easy...hope they are as I plan to copy a a few.
