Two Christmas Cards

I got a start on some Christmas cards last week because I had a stamp class. 
That's as good a reason as any, right? 
This first one is a one-layer card.  I stamped the sheet music (PTI) in versafine gray first, added the trees in various shades of green (wild wasabi, memento cottage ivy), added some tinsel in silver, and colored over the star with a spica gold glitter pen.  I notched the edges of the card to wrap some silver cording around it, and stamped a sentiment (Verve) in versafine black.  I just love the sheet music background - after I stamped it I stared at for like  5 minutes just because it's so beautiful! :)

And here's a snowflake card in purples (wisteria wonder and concord crush).  The background snowflake is a block I've had in my stash FOREVER and I use it every Christmas!  The sentiment is Hero Arts and the snowflake die is Cat's Pajamas.
Have a great week, thanks for stopping by!

These are beautiful Becky! I love how you made the notches in your first card for the tinsel to wrap around and I just love the design in your second card!
