Havin' a ball!

Getting the holiday card train rolling today by inking up a TAC set, Havin' a ball! Trying to keep all the cards I make as flat and simple as possible for ease in mailing and also to help me get them all done in time!

For years I've stressed so much over holiday/winter cards, so much that last year I didn't send any but I think most of it is because I had it in my mind that every card had to be elaborate. I think I've finally got it through my head that it's the thought and not the card that matters. I think sometimes I'm my own worst enemy!!

For the first card I stamped my little mousie in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored him with copics. My paper is Echo Park- Very Merry Christmas. Gotta have my sparkle so added touches with stickles to finish the card.

The next card is also stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with copics and then I cut the image out. I used sparkly fluff for the trim-love sparkly fluff! I used the same Echo Park-Very Merry Christmas for this card. I added some bakers twine and the sentiment to finish the card.

For the last card I inked the mousie again in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with copics. My paper is Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses. I embossed the white cardstock for some texture and then added sparkle with stickles and some shimmer with liquid pearls.

Thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy your day!

These are adorable Danni...all of htem! When making Christmas cards you need to throw that word "elaborate" out the window and replace it with CAS!

Sometimes CAS is the best way to go, like you said easy to mail out and no stress on you.
Great job Danni!!
