My first and second card are made using the images from Stampin' Up!s Perfect presentation Hostess Set. My card stock colors are Ballet Blue, Real Red and White. I used the Cuttlebug Swirl Embossing folder on the first card because I don't have the Snowflake embossing folder yet. The Bookplate is a Sizzix Die and the Merry Christmas sentiment is from a MSE clear set.
I used the same images on this card as the first but my friend Diana in Wisconsin sent me a couple Cuttlebugged Snowflake panels. Cool! My cards are an A6 size so the panel is a little small so I adapted it to suit my needs and added a strip of wide gingham ribon to that panel.
Before I put it all together I thought the Holiday Print background stamp (retired SU) might be nice on the Ballet Blue card body. I think I like this card better than the first, what do you think?
With the last card today I feel like I've got it! I like this one the best so far. I used Diana's Bashful Blue Cuttlebugged panel, added a white piece to it that I stamped with SU Holiday Print background stamp in Brilliant Blue, tied a piece of Brilliant Blue gingham ribbon on it and used one of the images from my retired SU Polar Bears set for the focal point. I colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils and added the black dots with a Stampin' Write marker.
What do you think, number one, two or three - what's your favorite?
