Sleigh and Sled.

Time again for the girls in the Christmas Card Club to show our next cards.  Maureen set the theme and asked for Christmas Activities using a  Sleigh, Sled, or Ski's. I had one used christmas card front that was suitable and I found a digi image to use as well. Phew!! Thought I was going to be stuck on this one.

First Card uses an old christmas card front that I have trimmed down. Papers are all from a paper pack by Glitz called 'Joyeux Noel'.


 The card front was quite pink in colour so I toned it down with papers that were red and brown themed. Sentiment was already on the card front.

My second card uses a pre - coloured digi by The Paper Shelter called 'Sliding Bear'. Again I have teamed with papers from the same paper  pack as above. The sentiment is a stamp by Phill Martin from his Scribbled Christmas Sentiment Corners Set which I highlighted with a brown pearlescent chalk.


Two more cards to add to my christmas pile which is beginning to stack up nicely.

These are both wonderful, Valery Anne. The first upcycled card is so lovely. I like the angled cut you did on the image portion. It gives a modern feel to your card. The backing papers are pretty too.

The second card is so adorable. Theat little skier is a cutie pie! Like the angled cut again and the pretty papers.
Two good designs, and two lovely cards!

It's always such fun to see how you've pulled some recycled card from your stash and repurposed it. Love how you cut the image shape, and then did the matting layout. It's a lovely sleigh - looks great with those background papers. #2 just made me smile. This sledding bear is having such joy and how cool that you had just the right digi to meet this challenge. Well done! TFS & Hugs

Two lovely cards as always Valery, your recycling skills are unrivaled. It's a great feeling to have made so many Christmas cards ahead of time isn't it.
