Once again I have taken inspiration from Deneen of A Path of Paper. This little man is made using circular Spellbinder Nestabilities, I used 3 in all, the edges are sponged with Tim Holtz's "broken china" ink. The arms are just drawn on, as are the eyes and mouth using ProMarkers. The nose is cut from orange card stock. The ribbon is from stock.
I made a bunch of these cards also, so simple... The backing paper is from Pink Petticoat "Fairy Lights" kit. The sentiment is cut using Spellbinders Christmas tree Shapeabilities. I added a little ribbon from my stash just to finish the bottoms. I left the inside of the cards blank.
Hope you like,
This card, I cased from Deneen of A Path of Paper . The backing paper is just plain navy paper, (doesn't look navy in photo but it is, trust me lol) and I stamped a snowflake background on to it with clear embossing ink. The "snowflakes" are made with 2 Fleur De Li's Shapeabilities, lining them up at a 90 degree angle to each other. In the first card, I did not cut out the centre of the shape but cut out the smaller pendant and layer it on top of the other pendants. (Does this make sense.lol) Than for the second card I did cut out the centre of the larger pendant, both card are quite pretty (even if I say so myself). I decorated them with Papermania's clear adhesive stones.
This is what I did with the inside of the cards. I printed out the sentiment and then cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Tags set. I sponged some Tim Holtz "Broken China" ink while it was still in the die cut. I mounted it on to the centre of the inside of the card. I sponged the bottom corner using one of the snowflake shapeabilities as a stencil, just to give the card a little extra.

I got most (if not all) of my inspiration for this years cards from Path of Paper. Deneen is so creative and I just love her style, simple but elegant. You should hop over and just see what she can do to a sheet of 12"x12"paper. Marvelous in my opinion. (No money changed hand for this endorsement, hehe) in second thoughts wait until you finish reading this. lol
