Krafty Christmas

Sooo, a while ago I had a bit of a Christmas cardmaking sesh (I made about 40, and I really do need to make time for another session), and these cards are some of the cards I made:

I decided that instead of spending a fortune buying new bits and bobs this year, I would try to use up some of my stash and save some money, so for these cards I decided to use of some of the smaller LOTV mini masterpieces.

I chose all cute animals and those that had more brown on them so they would go with the papers I had decided to use from the LOTV krafty christmas pad.

I added faux stitching with a brown fineliner around the edge of each image, which I then layered onto some red card.  I also added faux stitching around the papers (I chose a different paper to accompany each image, and I tried to get them to match as much as possible with something that was going on in the image), which I cut to the length of my 6x4 card blanks.

I then stamped 'merry christmas' from my new(ish) LOTV sentiments stamp with brown memento ink onto all the cards.

To finish, I then added a brown cross in each corner, two in the top right corner, to tie in the stitching theme I had going on.

I think I put these in my Etsy shop.  There is only one set, as I used up the last of these mini masterpieces and they aren't available anymore.  I am tempted to keep them for myself though, so get them before I do make that decision.

I would like to enter these cards into the following challenges:

Happy Crafting!
