I have two Christmas cards to share with you today that I created with the super cute new Smiley Happy Christmas set. Be sure to check out all the cute images in the store as well as the matching die set.
Today's Tip: When I create holiday cards I find it easier to stick with similar designs the same paper so I can produce more cards more quickly. For my set today I had some American Crafts papers and I used a similar layout so I was able to produce these cards in about half the time as if I had done them separately!!
For my first card I used the Christmas tree image from the set. Once again I cut my sentiment image in half so I could place it as I wanted onto the bottom of the Instalove polariod die.
For my second card I used the Christmas light image. As you can see I added some Glossy Accents over the bulbs to make them look realistic and then I raided my daughter's craft bucket for some small googly eyes. This month Karen also has some brand new YNS Gumdrops that are super duper sparkly and awesome. I added one to the middle of the my foam snowflake embellishment.
