So today I HAD to play with the three Christmas sets I created for Avery Elle in the Fall release. The whole release was so special but I couldn’t resist using these sets (narcissistic much Caryn, lol?).
The first card is probably my favourite – I love yintage deer images and ornaments, I have quite a few dotted around my home now! The papers I’ve used on all three cards are from the Sugar Plum paper pad from My Mind’s Eye (you know when you wish you’d bought like three of them and now you can’t get it anywhere??!!). The deer are coloured with Copics and the card is finished with a banner from the Merry and Bright set from Simon Says Stamp.
The second card features Retro Ornaments. Again, I am a total sucker for retro-style Christmas decor and was totally inspired to design these stamps by the ornaments that used to hang on my Gran’s tree when I was little. The images are coloured with Copics and fished off with some super sparkly glitter.
Lastly I have a card featuring Dear Santa. I’ve used this cat so many times already – she’s one sassy little lady!
