On my first card, I used the super fun & cute Gnome What? set. Love these toadstools and I love coloring them these funky colors. Who says they have to be dull or all brown? I used my out of the box technique and die cut them then fussy cut the reddish brown layer behind it. The cute little garden gnome was also fussy cut. The greeting was die cut with the ODBD Pennants die and addd on top.

The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

NCC Christmas House 04552
After stamping the gingerbread cottage, I masked it and stamped a couple of trees from the Happy Camper set and another on a separate piece of card stock to fussy cut and add on top. After coloring them all and adding the greeting, I added some stickles for a little sparkle. Can’t have too much sparkle on a Christmas card! 

NCC Christmas House cu 04551
I had some striped paper left over from another project which had been die cut w/ a curved border die so I used it on the bottom section. To frame the main image, I used a coordinating green paper from the same ODBD Christmas Collection 2013. A holly w/ red crystal berries was added on top of a big snowflake embellishment to finish it. The card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.
