A couple of Christmas cards

Today I have a couple of Christmas cards to show you which were part of my commission for the September edition of Complete Cardmaking magazine.
I was given a Sarah Paris kit to play with which contained several papers and a good selection of bauble, snowflake and sentiment digi stamps.

For the first card I merged together the snowflake string and the bauble in Photoshop before colouring to match the background paper I was using. The right hand side of the card front is acetate, and the bauble is fixed to this so that when the card is open the bauble looks like it is dangling. I coloured the "Merry" of the sentiment to match the bauble.

Both gorgeous cards Colette and well worth of their magazine appearance!! I really love how you did the bauble on the acetate on the top one... such a clever idea! Fabulous design and colour as always!
