Here is the sketch:
For my first card, I stamped the Lili of the Valley Reindeer Trio and coloured them to match the backing papers, which were from an old issue of Making Cards but were originally designed by Polkadoodles. Them I made the card up as an A5 sized easel card. The frame around the central image is made using a double sided sticker covered with glitter. (Oh, a lightbulb moment, I could make more of these using my own does and some double sided adhesive sheet!)
As well as 52 CCT , I am submitting this to the Lili of the Valley September Challenge which is Animals, and to Winter Wonderland, where the current challenge is Cute Characters or an easel card - I reckon this is a double whammy!
A complete change of pace for my second card, which has a vintage/shabby chic look to it. The central image is a Kanban one and the two small images are reproduction cigarette cards, all from Foil Play. I've added doileys, ribbon and lace and layers of card from my Christmas snippets box, plus a stamped image (it's an old unmounted stamp I was sent in a RAK).
The images and card blank were roughly edged with gold ink and embossed with gold ep, the edges of the card distressed with the v shaped thingumagig from a distressing kit and the sentiment edged by scribbling roughly with a Tonertex pen and cold-foiling, using foil from Foilplay.
As well as 52 CCT I am sharing this with
